Last November I attended a fun event here in Helsinki: a sort of mix between science and stand-up comedy called Science Slam Helsinki. A Science Slam is a form of science communication to general audience. Each scientist gives a short talk (10-15 mins) to popularise science. Often such events are held in non-academic places, like pubs. Science Slam Helsinki took place on November 6th at Elmun baari.
I am proud to say one of the speakers was my advisor and inverse problems researcher Prof. Samuli Siltanen. His talk was titled "How to defuse a photobomb" and showed some mathematical techniques for image enhancement and manipulation, in particular inpainting. Samuli was claimed winner at the end! You can enjoy his talk right here:

It was great to see a mathematics talk winning the hearts of the audience. Congratulations, Samuli!
