**Abstract:** I will discuss the paper "A Vietoris-Smale mapping theorem for the homotopy of hyperdefinable sets" by Alessandro Achille and Alessandro Berarducci [arXiv]. In this paper, they compare the definable homotopy groups of a space $X$ definable in an o-minimal structure (denoted $\pi_n(X)^\mathrm{def}$) with the (usual) homotopy groups of the quotient $X/E$, where $E$ is a certain kind of type-definable equivalence relation on $X$. Under certain assumptions, these groups are actually isomorphic. These types of quotients were first studied by Pillay in the case that $X$ is actually a definable group. This is the first talk that I will give on this paper.
