Interview with Marcus Du Sautoy

I recently interviewed Marcus Du Sautoy for Talks at Google, who is the Professor for the Public Understanding of Science and a Professor of Mathematics at Oxford University. It was tremendous fun talking as mathematicians about AI and creativity: an eclectic mix of Hardy’s apology, automated theorem proving, counterpoints between mental shortcuts and the self-imposed struggles of games, and more. You can find more about these topics in Marcus’s books The Creativity Code and Thinking Better as well as his forthcoming book Around the World in 80 Games. Finally, during the Q&A, we also briefly discuss Eric Weinstein and his Geometric Unity theory, a topic which Marcus and I are both intimately familiar with.
