I will present a new proof assistant, Globular, which allows the formalization of compositional proofs in higher category theory. The interface is geometrical, with proofs depicted as string diagrams, and allowing direct click-and-drag manipulation. I will show how to build a simple proof from scratch, and present some sophisticated formalized proofs from topology and algebra. I will also give some details of the theoretical basis. This talk will be accessible, and will not require any previous knowledge of category theory.
