If you have a question about this talk, please contact Todd Waugh Ambridge. Please contact Todd if you wish to give a talk this term! Using dependent type theory to formalise models of dependent type theory is an active topic of study. Formalising the initial such model goes under the name of “type theory eating itself” or “type theory in type theory”. I will explain why this is difficult in the absence of the principle of unique identity proofs (UIP), and how higher categorical models connect two long-standing open problems of homotopy type theory.
