The 10th Heidelberg Laureate Forum in Sketchnotes
The week of the 10th Heidelberg Laureate Forum, which once a year brings together bright young mathematicians and computer scientists with the most prominent scientists in the field, started with fresh new lectures by old and new friends of the HLF, Laureates Raj Reddy, Yael Tauman Kalai, and Robert Metcalfe, all very popular among the audience!
This year’s HLF has a brand new format that turned out to be a revelation: the Lightning Talks, moderated by mathematician and communicator Dr. Tom (Rocks Maths) Crawford.
But the surprise didn’t stop there! The Spark Session’s purpose was to inspire!
This week welcomed new Laureates who shared with the audience their passion for mathematics, phase transitions and the connections between maths and computer science
The week couldn’t be complete without a Panel discussion on what is probably ”the” hot topic of the year: Generative AI, moderated by science journalist Anil Ananthaswamy.
Throughout the week, the participants of the HLF had the opportunity to visit an exhibition with a selection from the last 10 years of outreach at HLF. The HLF Foundation’s outreach activities are situated in the MAINS, the Mathematics and Information Station, opened by the HLFF in 2017. The Head of Outreach and Exhibitions, Dr. Volker Gaibler, gave us a tour!
