Fête de la Science, Orsay
ESR Ivan Palaia hosted an activity at Fête de la Science 2018. Three classes from high school visited LPTMS in Université Paris-Sud and discussed probability with him and senior researcher Hubert Krivine.
Biased statistics and data misinterpretation often brings to fake or misleading conclusions. That's why developing a good statistical intuition is fundamental nowadays. Come and test yours on Ivan's website!
ESRs Sara Dal Cengio, Jérôme Hardoüin and Ivan Palaia represented NANOTRANS at Festivaletteratura in Mantua, Italy, on September 5-9. They collaborated with Scienceground, the festival's scientific area, where internationally known scientists were invited to talk about their lives and research topics.
What do we mean when we talk about beauty within a physical theory? What is elegance in matematics? What is the future of theoretical partical physics? To answer these questions, Sara discussed live with Sabine Hossenfelder, author of Lost in Math.
Also, if you understand Italian, don't miss Sara and Jérôme's Scienceground podcast, in four episodes. You will discover how science and society should interact with each other, according to Tommaso Dorigo (Università di Padova), Tommaso Venturini (Sciences Po Paris), Giuseppe De Nicolao (Università di Pavia), Stefano Lacaprara (INFN Padova) and Bruno Latour (Science Po Paris and London School of Economics).
See you next year in Mantua!
