Professor Terence Tao was recently featured on Future Tense, an ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) program centered around exploring innovations induced by rapid change. The interview specifically highlighted the significance of digital technology and internet collaboration within the field of mathematics.
"Maths, it's everywhere! Whether it's the computer in our cars or the smartphone we use every day, maths plays an increasingly important role in our daily lives. But what impact are digital technologies themselves having on the way the process of maths works? And in a digital age do we need to change the way we teach maths to make it more relevant to our lives in the 21st century?"
