    111111111x111111111 - Beauty of Mathematics

    8:13

    If you multiply a number with only 1s by itself, you end up with a palindrome of the numbers in ascending and then descending order. People have called this an example of the beauty of mathematics. If your number has N digits of 1, then its square will be the numbers 1 to N in ascending and then descending order. The pattern continues indefinitely, although it breaks after 9 because of carry over. I explain why the pattern happens using the method of multiplying by lines.

    Demonstrating the beauty of maths and science: Roger Antonsen at TEDxKrakow

    16:19

    Roger Antonsen received his PhD in computer science in 2008, in the field of logic, proof theory and automated reasoning, from the University of Oslo in Norway. He is an enthusiastic and passionate speaker with a wide variety of interests, in particular juggling, mathematics, and puzzles of all sorts. Through his talks, shows and projects, Roger says he wants to do science communication in a different way, in order to inspire a new generation of thinkers and remove the common misconceptions about mathematics and computer science. By using microcontrollers, sensors and open source technologies, like Arduino, he is able to demonstrate the mathematics of juggling and the physics of roller coasters in both novel and entertaining ways.

    Roger Antonsen w 2008 roku otrzymał tytuł doktora informatyki norweskiego Uniwersytetu w Oslo w dziedzinie logiki, teorii dowodu i automatycznego wnioskowania. Z pasją i zaangażowaniem prowadzi wykłady dotyczące niezwykle wielu zainteresowań, w szczególności żonglerki, matematyki i wszelkiego rodzaju łamigłówek. Jak mówi, w ramach projektów podczas prezentacji i wykładów chce przedstawić kwestie popularno-naukowe tak, by zainspirować nowe pokolenia myślicieli i wyeliminować powszechne błędne wyobrażenia na temat matematyki i informatyki. W ciekawy, nowatorski sposób -- za pomocą mikrokontrolerów, czujników i technologii open source (np. Arduino) -- potrafi objaśnić matematyczne zasady rządzące żonglowaniem czy fizyczne reguły działania kolejki górskiej.

    Roger spoke at TEDxKrakow, which took place on 25 October 2013 at Stara Zajezdnia in Kraków's Jewish district. Our theme this year was Make! and was a celebration of making. We asked our speakers to explore and demonstrate the practice, and to ponder what it takes to make more makers. We featured some of Krakow's makers and created a dedicated maker space to encourage our audience of over 600 people to have a go at making something -- anything!

    Physicist Werner Heisenberg said, “When I meet God, I am going to ask him two questions: why relativity? And why turbulence? I really believe he will have an answer for the first.” As difficult as turbulence is to understand mathematically, we can use art to depict the way it looks. Natalya St. Clair illustrates how Van Gogh captured this deep mystery of movement, fluid and light in his work.

    This is my end of the year video! I wanted to do something a little different.

We can and will discover the rules of intelligence. The fact that it is governed by mathematics only makes it that much more beautiful. From simple rules emerge incredible complexity.

    Nerd Nite East Bay #36: 20K Leagues, Scrabble, and Human Senses

    2:50:00

    A Journey Through Liquid Space: The Disney 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Ride by David Shuff

    In 1971, Disney unveiled the greatest theme park attraction ever: the 20K ride. For decades it inspired, delighted and scared the crap out of anyone with half an imagination. In 1994, the ride was temporarily “closed for maintenance,” but it was a lie, lie, lie. In fact it never sailed again, and after laying fallow for a decade, the decrepit ruins were unceremoniously demolished in 2004. But the story—and the dream—doesn’t end there. David Shuff has dedicated himself to keeping the memory and magic of 20K alive; in spite of riding it only once when he was 3 years old. Sharing rare photos, video and actual crew member accounts, he will helm a spine tingling adventure through the rise, fall and surprising afterlife of the 20K ride—the lost 8th wonder of the world.

    War of the Words: A Fascinating Glimpse into Competitive Scrabble by Cesar del Solar

    In 1938, an out-of-work architect named Alfred Butts created the game we now know as Scrabble. By painstakingly tabulating the letter distributions of words in the New York Times, he created a great game that has withstood the test of time and gone on to sell hundreds of millions of copies worldwide. The first National Scrabble Championship was played in New York City in 1978 and won by David Prinz, who then retired from the game and went on to form Amoeba Records. This talk will focus on those among us who have decided to take up this game competitively. When we’re not furiously memorizing word lists or obsessively analyzing prior losses, competitive Scrabble players can be a pretty personable bunch! At the highest levels, Scrabble becomes more of a game of math, probabilities, and spatial reasoning. While this is not what some casual players may have in mind when talking about Scrabble, I hope to expose the beauty in this game and the many lifelong friendships that have resulted from it.

    Everything You Learned in Kindergarten Was Wrong: You Don’t Have Five Senses by Indre Viskontas

    The idea that we experience the world through five senses is so ingrained in our culture that entire preschool educational methods are built upon it. The magic number five has a lovely order to it- corresponding to our eyes, ears, nose, mouth and skin. And when we talk about some sensation other than what can be captured by these body parts, we call it a ‘sixth sense’. But the truth is that we have way more than five and even those senses don’t work alone: what you see is what you smell, hear, taste and touch.
