Mathematics in the 21st Century, A Seminar

January 8, 2019: John Baez – Mathematics in the 21st Century

Abstract: The global warming crisis is part of a bigger transformation in which humanity realizes that the Earth is a finite system and that our population, energy usage, and the like cannot continue to grow exponentially. If civilization survives this transformation, it will affect mathematics - and be affected by it - just as dramatically as the agricultural revolution or industrial revolution. We should get ready!

For now you can look at these slides and videos of related talks:
