Nonnerdy Applied Mathematics

· Big Data Zone

From Antifragile:

There is such a thing as nonnerdy applied mathematics: find a problem first, and figure out the math that works for it (just as one acquires language), rather than study in a vacuum through theorems and artificial examples, then change reality to make it look like these examples.

This is similar to how I define very applied math in that the problem comes first, not the math.
