Four images generated by AI from the prompt "mathematician"In the first image a grumpy-looking old white man hunches over an open book with a pencil in his hand, and a blurry background with what looks like mathematical symbols on it. The second shows three young men in casual clothing standing behind a yellow board with some mathematical symbols and what looks like a football drawn in it. The third shows a smiling, long-haired young man in a cardigan sitting at a table writing in a notebook with a blackboard containing mathematical symbols in the background. The fourth image shows a dark-skinned young woman with pigtails holding an orange folder under her arm and a piece of yellow card with a diagram on it in her hand. She has raised a finger on her other hand and looks like she is asking a question.
