If you have a question about this talk, please contact David Smith. In Scientific and Engineering Great Discoveries, mathematics seems to play a supporting role to these important disciplines. However, there is one field in which mathematics is the Queen of Science; Mathematical Modelling. Mathematical modelling has always played a leading role in human achievements. From the discovery of Blacks Holes and the Planet Neptune to driving BloodHound Land-speed record attempt of next year. Nevertheless, is there a Star-Wars ‘dark side’ of mathematical modelling? Was mathematical modelling responsible for the World Economical Crash of 2008? Will mathematical modelling create automated robots that will surpass human intelligence and enslave us?
