Part of a national Science on Screen program, which pairs a feature film (The Man Who Knew Infinity) with a science expert (Po-Shen Loh) who will speak about current scientific research or technological advances surrounding the film’s topic.

Topic: Intuition, Paradoxes, and Proof.
Inspired by the story of Ramanujan’s famously brilliant intuition, Po-Shen will discuss paradoxes, which arise from the failure of human intuition and resolve only through the rigor of mathematical reasoning.

Po-Shen Loh, a math enthusiast and evangelist. He is the national coach of the USA International Mathematical Olympiad team, a math professor at CMU, and the founder of expii.com, an education technology startup providing a free personalized learning platform on every smartphone.

The Man Who Knew Infinity is the true story of Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel), a self-taught Indian mathematics genius, who travels to Trinity College, Cambridge, where over the course of five years, forged a bond with his mentor, the brilliant and eccentric professor, G.H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons), and fought against prejudice to reveal his mathematic genius to the world.
