Abstract (EN)Mathematics was always, and is now more than ever, a key technology for innovation. Not many people would understand this sentence, because there is a wide-spread belief that Mathematics is not really useful except for teaching purposes. But actually the above statement can be made without any problem, because Mathematics is playing an increasing role in the development of new technologies, and its influence is only going to increase in the future. In the talk given in the WMWM meeting I tried to “prove” the above statements with examples.
