Links to videotaped talks and pdf slides

February 4, 2013

Busy at work today but I wanted to share a few links coming out of talks I gave recently.

First the one I gave at Brown University at the Agnes Conference (October 2012). It’s called “How Math is Used outside Academia”.

Second the one I gave at Stony Brook’s colloquium (December 2012). It has the same title.

These two are videos of the same talk (although with very different audiences), so please don’t watch both of them, you will get bored! If you like friendly audiences, go with Agnes. If you like to watch me getting heckled, go with Stony Brook.

[p.s.: I pretty much never watch other people’s videos, so please don’t watch either one, actually.]

The third talk, which was the shortest, was at the Joint Math Meetings (January 2013) but I don’t think it was taped. It was called Weapons of Math Destruction and the slides are available here (I’ve turned them into a pdf).

    Do you have any models that are less complicated that might be consumable in hs math class that you are willing to share?

      Let me think about it. Although I think the basic credit scoring model is simple enough- and you could even have the class build it with you.
