The practice of the field of research explained through the experiences of people of renowned prestige and great trajectory, starting three great conversations. The effort, passion and difficulties in their careers and their main findings will be combined with three biopics that also want to transmit the strong interweaving between life and research work, following three major themes: the exploration of the universe, the abstraction of mathematics and artificial intelligence and robotics.

This session will deal with the current state of mathematics, which is often undervalued by some spheres of society. It is often seen as abstract and does not seem to get the recognition it deserves. Two young people, widely recognised nationally and internationally, involved in research on relatively similar topics, will share their concerns about this science and its current situation. This will be followed by a screening of the biopic The Man Who Knew the Infinity, a work that narrates the life of a young Indian man with no schooling. Srinivasa Ramanujan, despite his lack of education, has a great aptitude for mathematics. This fact leads him to be invited to the University of Cambridge to work with a pre-eminent English mathematician and to finish exploiting all his abilities.

The activity will begin with a colloquium followed by a screening of the film.
