A Kakeya set in F^n, where F is a finite field, is a set containing a line in every direction. The finite field Kakeya conjecture states that the size of such sets is bounded from below by C_n*|F|^n, where C_n depends only on the dimension n. I will talk about the recent proof of this conjecture and its connection to problems in theoretical computer science.
