Oxford University's Sedleian Professorship of Natural Philosophy is 400 years old in 2021. The title implies a wide range of study. Current holder Jon Keating does just that in this Public Lecture via the Olympics, machine learning & the Riemann zeta-function, the mathematical object that encodes the mysterious distribution of the prime numbers.
