Kyoto Mathematician Morita Masao unlocks the hidden mysteries and real-world applications of numbers.

Masao Morita
Independent scholar
The word "mathematics" may delight some people and terrify others. Masao Morita, while still enrolled with the Tokyo University Mathematics Department in 2010, began his explorations as an independent researcher by founding the Kai An Mathematics Dojo in Fukuoka. In the years since, Masao has been continuing his independent research outside the university system, conducting practical workshops that explore the concept of "thinking under constraints that go beyond our thoughts". His main research interests include Category Theory and the Theory of Computation. Masao seeks to fuse the theoretic and practical aspects of mathematics, and to share the insights they offer with the world. To this end, Masao regularly conducts unique "mathematics concerts" around the country, both conducting and performing in a demonstration of Mathematics that will leave you breathless.

森田 真生
独立研究者
「数学の演奏会」をご存知ですか?そのステージで拍手に包まれる演奏家=Playerこそが森田真生さんです。2010年、東京大学理学部数学科在学中に、福岡県糸島市に数学道場「懐庵」を立ち上げたのが、独立研究者としての第一歩。以来、「思考を超えた制約の中に思考を投げ出す」ことをテーマに、さまざまな実験的ワークショップを開催しながら、大学制度の外側で独自の研究活動を展開してきました。主な関心は「圏論」「計算論」。現在は京都に拠点を構え、自然と「ともに-考える(com-putare)」という、言葉本来の意味での計算(computation)ということを理論的、実践的に追求しています。同時に、数学の世界の数々「名作」を「演奏する」ことをコンセプトに、「数学の演奏会」を全国各地で開催しています。

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
