The American Math. Society held a conference called "Math Challenges of the 21st Century"

in Los Angeles, August 6-11, 2000

My lecture "High-Dimensional Data Analysis: The Curses and Blessings of Dimensionality" was delivered the morning of August 8, 2000, exactly 100 years to the day after David Hilbert's Math. Problems lecture of August 8 1900. However, my 23 problems of that day had largely to do with my own chromosome pairs and the inherent limitations they impose.
