The French anthropologist and ethnologist Claude Levi-Strauss once observed
“In Paris, intellectuals need a new toy every 15 years.”
Some pointers to applications of their toy of choice for the past ten years:
- Langlands correspondence (see here)
- Riemann hypothesis (see here)
- Machine learning (see here)
- Literature (see here)
- Psycho-analysis (see here)
- Design theory (see here)
- Haute cuisine (see here)
- 6G (see here)
