Date: Time: 4:00 pm–4:50 pm

Contact: Alexandra Seceleanu,
Calculus has been around for centuries and has a long tradition of applications spanning the modern history of science. However, the current age is characterized by a sweeping array of new potential applications—to machine learning, AI, robotics, neuroscience, genetics, and much more. In addition, both our curricula and our default modes of instruction (chalk, paper, 4-color texts) are not keeping pace with innovation. This talk will be an argument for updating both the content and the mode of visualization of calculus. There will be lots of pictures, new applications, and even a little bit of the mathematics that lies beyond calculus.
