from the event webpage:

“Damned lies and statistics

You want to know when a politician is lying? Some people would say most of the time, but Eugenia Cheng says you can catch them out by mathematics. While strong feelings can obscure the reality behind the rhetoric, black-and-white logic can guide us through the fog around crucial issues like Brexit. Mathematical logic used side by-side with emotions not only helps us to make more rational decisions but also enriches our lives, and Eugenia, an acclaimed concert pianist with a big Youtube following, shows us how we can use this combination to navigate through an increasingly complex world.”
