STEM Speaker: Professor Po-Shen Loh CHANGED: Location
-
Studio Theatre in The Discovery Center

6:00-6:30 P.M. will be the welcome reception followed by the speaking remarks from Professor Po-Shen Loh.

The scale of global societal problems looks daunting. One person, or even a small team, is minuscule relative to the number of people who need help. However, there is an area close to mathematics that devises solutions in which problems solve themselves even through self-serving human behavior: Game Theory.

Professor Po-Shen Loh is a pure math professor, researcher, and educator who transitioned to using Game Theory to develop new solutions for large-scale real-world problems. He will talk about his experience going from the ivory tower of academia into the practical mess of the real world.

He will also discuss educational strategies that build relevant skills to survive this new era of Generative AI (e.g. ChatGPT). He has been working extensively on this problem and draws from experience teaching across the entire spectrum, from underprivileged schools to the International Math Olympiad.

This event will be completely different from an ordinary math talk. It will be fun and thought-provoking.
