Nowadays we know that mathematics permeates our lives, especially since they are increasingly influenced by technological tools. The times in which mathematical tools come to our rescue are countless. To quote a common example, you will have certainly noticed that the images you receive on WhatsApp are blurred until you actually download them. During the meeting we will briefly illustrate how image compression
works from a mathematical point of view, and we will perform some simple experiments on personal photos, without using photo-retouching softwares but only using mathematical tools with a software for scientific computations.
