If you have a question about this talk, please contact Maurice Chiodo. We hold mathematics in very high regard, as the beacon of absolute truth. Mathematics does not have any intrinsic prejudice or bias; it reveals truth. But how do we infer meaning from truth? Mathematicians design systems to remove human subjectivity from decision making processes, to make them more impartial. Does this mean that that we’ve removed all subjectivity from the process? We must realise the strengths, and weaknesses, of the systems we design. This talk is part of the C.U. Ethics in Mathematics Society (CUEiMS) series. ## This talk is included in these lists:- C.U.
