One of the most important applied mathematician in the world explains everything we need to know about algorithms: how they can predict the pandemic behaviour, how they are used in the artificial assistants, how they will change more and more our lives.
From the epidemiological models used to prevent the spread of Covid to the latest self-driving cars, Quarteroni leads us in the world of applied mathematics. In a simple and attractive way, he is capable to let us understand even the artificial neural networks and the new artificial intelligence that gives life to Siri, Alexa and the other assistants. It is the beginning of a new mathematical world.
Alfio Quarteroni is professor at the Politecnico of Milan, and at the EPFL. He is the founder of MOX and co-founder (and President) of MOXOFF. He is author of 22 books (some of them translated into up to 7 languages), editor of 5 books, author of about 350 papers, member of the editorial board of 25 International Journals, and Editor in Chief of two book series published by Springer.
