In this talk, I will present a veritable cornucopia of new partition identities discovered over the past calendar year. Some of these have proofs, some are still conjectures; some should break new ground in the study of affine Lie algebra; all were discovered with the use of computers (in a surprising variety of ways). This is based on joint work in a handful of different groups, including with Terence Coelho and Jongwon Kim, with Shashank Kanade and Debajyoti Nandi, and with Shashank Kanade.
