Abstract

Machine Assisted Proofs

For centuries, mathematicians have relied on computers to perform calculations, to suggest conjectures, and as components of mathematical proofs.  In the light of more modern tools such as interactive theorem provers, machine learning algorithms, and generative AI, we are beginning to see machines used in more creative and substantive ways in our work.  In this talk we survey some historical and recent developments, and speculate on the future roles of machine assistance in mathematics.

INVITED SPEAKER

Terence Tao

University of California

I am a Professor at the Department of Mathematics, UCLA. I work in a number of mathematical areas, but primarily in harmonic analysis, PDE, geometric combinatorics, arithmetic combinatorics, analytic number theory, compressed sensing, and algebraic combinatorics.  I am part of the Analysis Group here at UCLA, and also an editor or associate editor at several mathematical journals. Here are  my papers and preprints, my books, and my research blog.

I maintain a harmonic analysis mailing list and contributed to the DispersiveWiki project.  I used to maintain a harmonic analysis page for conferences and other links.

Think you might know me from somewhere?  Here’s how you can contact me.  If you are a representative of the media, please visit this page instead.
