Are You a Math Genius?
In Numb3rs episode "First Law", DARPA Project Director Jane Karellen asks Dr. Eppes about his work on Cognitive Emergence, otherwise known as the mathematics of the brain. In real life, Cognitive Emergence is the #1 item of interest in DARPA's 23 Mathematical Challenges, a list they published August 2007. In his usual cutting edge manner, Dr. Eppes had already been working on the problem for years. Can you match up DARPA-23 related quotes with the episode that they appeared in?
