March 1, 2022: talk by Dimitri Kanevsky (Google) on “A Non-Associative Moufang Loop of Point Classes on a Cubic Surface”

Dimitri Kanevsky came up with the first example of a non-associative Moufang loop of classes of points on cubic hypersurfaces. This answers a 50-year-old question by Yuri Manin. This talk was the first talk in mathematics which used a speech recognition technology. The program for speech recognition was co-invented also by Dimitri Kanevsky.
