In this talk, Tom Switzer will give a high level overview of the Spire library. Spire provides numeric abstractions for working with numbers (and number-like things) generically, as well as many new numeric types, like Rational, Real, Interval, etc. This will briefly go into why working with algebras is better than working with specific number types. And follow up with what alternatives Spire provides to Scala's standard number types and why you may want to use them.
