Hopcroft is speaking!

Can you see the livestream still? Atiyah is meant to be on, but the livestream doesn't work for me.

I got on 45 minutes earlier so I can see the original livestream

the link is a livestream of quite poor quality, but that's Heidelberg Laureate Forum's fault

anyway they'll upload to youtube later

15 minutes in, still introducing the theorem

(no, I don't know how to livestream my computer's audio)

I think you will learn more from watching Mario's live stream than Prof Sir Mike's.

The whole Atiyah story is rather sad and it's a shame that it's come to this. The community knows that he is an elderly man who has become a little deluded. He has spent his entire mathematical life thinking in an extremely flexible way and showing mathematicians the path through treacherous terrains with insightful ideas.

But now he is under the unfortunate impression that general ideas about how to proceed actually equal proofs. He has been like this for a few years, this is well-known amongst the geometry community (at least in the UK). Quite how it has come to this I don't know and really it's rather sad.

he mentioned in the abstract of the talk that his result is based on von Neumann and Hirzebruch and Dirac

now he used the first two guys' result that generalizes Euler's formula to quaternions

Indeed it's a shame that the HLF organisers let this happen.

well someone else would let this happen

It's a huge shame that HLF organizers arranged that. I guess they would use any big name
