BPR - Big proof

I shall try to explain why I believe that computers will probably surpass humans at finding proofs within a small number of decades. The main content of the talk will be a close analysis of a few example problems of varying difficulty for humans, focusing on what humans do in order to reduce the size of the search space. Thus, it will be in the spirit of Polya, but with the ultimate goal of educating computers rather than humans.
