Many of us don't realize how much we rely on math to keep our assets safe. A stop at the ATM, a purchase on Amazon, a stock trade made by your 401K, all safe, thanks to math. To be specific, it's actually the science of cryptology. On the Sound of Ideas, we'll be joined by a father-son cryptology team. We'll learn how the math the military has relied on for decades is now being used to secure everything from your bank account to your child's grades.
