Abstract:

Have you ever visited one of the websites that claims to be able to "read your mind"? For example, check out http://www.digicc.com/fido/. The site seems to know what you're thinking, but what's really going on? In this informal talk, we'll discuss some elementary number theory that explains how two of these "mind-reading" websites work.
