Since 2006 there has been an emergence of a new candidate for foundations of mathematics, the univalent foundations, whose more vocal proponents feel that mathematics of the future will be done exclusively by proof assistants and the associated computer libraries. We discuss the connections and differences between the ZFC set theory and univalent foundations and show that the univalent foundations and set theory address two different sets of questions in mathematics, ... |
