About this Event

This is to book tickets to watch a live feed of the filming of the 2019 CHRISTMAS LECTURES on Saturday 14 December.

Event description

We think our lives unfold thanks to a mix of luck and our own personal choices. But that’s not quite true. An unseen layer of mathematics governs every aspect of our world. In this year’s CHRISTMAS LECTURES, Hannah Fry shows us how to decode life’s hidden numbers; to help us all make better choices, sort fact from fiction, and lead happier lives.

In this Lecture, we see how ‘chaining probabilities together’ help us to understand even more complex systems. Through entertaining examples, Hannah shows how data-gobbling algorithms have taken over our lives and now control almost everything we do without us even realising.
