I will begin by giving some background on Free Probability motivated by the freeness in free groups. I will then demonstrate how Free Probability can be used to obtain a sharp non-asymptotic random matrix estimate for general use. This talk will be concluded by a recent application of our result to the Matrix Spencer Conjecture. Joint work with Afonso Bandeira and Ramon van Handel.
