Hi everyone, I've just uploaded my asynchronous talk to
During the later social hour tomorrow evening (at the end of the conference) will be the scheduled discussion session for the talk in gather, where we can chat about it.
So if you are interested and have a chance to watch it before then (~35mins) I'd love to hear your feedback and questions!
The slides are at http://alexjbest.github.io/talks/lean-generalisation/ .

Alex: So, this lemma, it's about finsets and you've got the linear ordered field.
AI: So Islam or it's about fan sets and you for the linear audit field.

Linda is quite smart. I'm really glad she's helping us improve mathlib!
