The most useless concepts are the concepts that are from the new release papers that haven't been used much yet. Most of the mathematics you learn in kindergarten through to the end of undergrad is all useful in some aspect or another.

Before the birth of cryptography, number theory was considered recreational, useless maths. However, it is now considered useful.
