Q16 Will mathematicians' research truly contribute to society?

A: Theories such as those of mathematics, the basis of bases, require time until they can help the world. In addition, when mathematics prevails, it is almost always the case that it is used in an unexpected manner. For that reason, it is difficult to judge whether any mathematician’s research in progress will be applied in practice, and whether such research might yield a tremendous success.

Mathematicians are conducting research in the quest of theoretical beauty as mathematics. It is the way of mathematical research. However, history has proven that mathematics is eventually helpful to society because mathematics plays a role of a foundation of science
