Mathematics as Your Wingman
12 - 1 p.m., Bayou 2127
Speaker: Bun Yue, Ph.D., UHCL Professor of Computer Science

For most people, direct applications of Mathematics may not go much beyond additions, subtractions, and multiplications. However, a strong sense of mathematical and statistical thinking can be a powerful tool to understand and manage biases, fakeness, emotions, decision makings, etc. This practical talk discusses how to use Mathematics as a wingman to navigate through life adventures. Knowledge of high school algebra is sufficient to thoroughly understand the talk.
