Is it possible that we will one day know everything? Or are there fields of research that will always lie beyond the bounds of human comprehension? Former Christmas Lecturer Marcus du Sautoy will lead us on a thought-provoking expedition to the furthest reaches of modern science.
Marcus du Sautoy is a mathematician and popular science writer and speaker. He delivered the 2006 CHRISTMAS LECTURES on mathematics, titled THE NUM8ER MY5TERIES. He is currently the Charles Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science at the Oxford University.
This talk and Q&A was filmed at the Ri on 13 October 2016.
