About the Venue:
We are happy to be able to invite Dr. Shaun Martin to give us a talk in pure mathematics. This talk would be about why functors are invented, how you can do some cool things with them. And its relation with Haskell.
Dr Shaun Martin is the co-founder of Applied Cognitive Science: a company that uses cognitive science, behavioral economics and data science to build predictive models for strategic planning, innovation, and public policy.
Prior to founding Applied Cognitive Science he worked in academia: holding lecturing and research positions at MIT and at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton. He holds a DPhil from Oxford University.
