A conversation about mathematics between the UK and USA from Pulse-Project.org. This week Samuel and Peter spoke about: Samuel's ridiculous bus trip; Computer programmes with IQ 150; IBM's Watson and data analytics; Extracting Dynamical Equations from Experimental Data is NP-Hard; OPERA faster-than-light neutrinos experiment UPDATE 23 February 2012; 'Invisibility' cloak could protect buildings from earthquakes; How Bots Seized Control of Carlos Bueno's Pricing Strategy; Calculus: The Musical!; Who says 'maths curriculum failing to meet the needs of the 21st century'?; Turing Stamp; & more, and Peter spoke to some of the team behind Maths in the City on the occasion of their inaugural London walking tour. Oh, and Samuel forgot to mention Science Sparring Society's second fight, but the link is in the show notes anyway.
