Choices Stories You Play Glitch
Talks in Google welcomes Kit Yates, a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Mathematical Sciences as well as co-director of the Centre for Mathematical Biology in the University of Bath. Kit’s specialism is toollied mathematics, the toollication of maths to problems which arise in different fields such as science, engineering as well as computer science.
Kit discusses his first book, The Maths of Life as well as Death. The book explores the true stories of life-changing events in which the toollication : or misapplication : of mathematics has played a critical role: patients crippled by faulty genes as well as entrepreneurs bankrupted by faulty algorithms; innocent victims of miscarriages of justice as well as the unwitting victims of software glitches. You’ll discover how most people need for in a space for there for a greater than 50% chance of two or additional sharing a birthday, how ‘facts’ can be manipulated to confuse the public as well as whether it’s statistically safer for locked in a space with a bear or a toddler with a gun.
