Tilings of the plane, for example. There are things that exist that are literally non-computable. It's possible a "theory of everything" won't be computable either. Oops.

Reply Tobiasz Budzyński says: December 12, 2017 at 1:43 am It's an older idea than XX century.>>Babbage started to design in 1834; "in less than two years he had sketched out many of the salient features of the modern computer. A crucial step was the adoption of a punched card system derived from the Jacquard loom" making it infinitely programmable.<<wikipedia Reply Levi Poush says: December 25, 2017 at 7:59 pm It's too complex, it needs too much help.

You have two more years two deliver the formula of the universe you promised Stephen. Probably easier to continue ripping off students with your expensive Mathematica subscriptions though. Nice shoes.

Reply GrumpyOldMan says: October 2, 2018 at 2:21 pm He needs some styling advice Reply NolsMix1 says: October 4, 2018 at 9:10 pm there's an article on cellular automata @stanford.edu. In it a quote from Richard Feynman: It bothers me that, according to the laws as we understand them today, it takes a computing machine an infinite number of logical operations to figure out what goes on in no matter how tiny a region of space, and no matter how tiny a region of time. How can all that be going on in that tiny space? Why should it take an infinite amount of logic to figure out what a tiny piece of space-time is going to do? So I have often made the hypothesis that ultimately physics will not require a mathematical statement, that in the end the machinery will be revealed and the laws will turn out to be simple, like the checker board with all its apparent complexities.

This is exactly the path my intuition has been leading me down. This talk lay the concepts down so well and helped clarify my thoughts while sending chills down my spine. At least I know my imagination wasn't running away with me aimlessly. Ah, I've gained whole new clarity and certainty.

(Also, I don't know much philosophy so a lot of this rant is from intuition.) I don't trust AI when its architects begin to discuss how it will interact with free will. It appears that Wolfram is utterly amoral – he has actually said that he detests the word "consciousness". His philosophy essentially states that if we follow the universal program, it will eventually result in consciousness. My worldview is the opposite and rests on consciousness being primary. His ideas are frightening because I think the philosophy that simple rules and programs can eventually describe the entire universe is accurate. Reminds me of Chomsky describing the language and the mind – how a very finite lexicon following common and simple rules can be used to express an infinite range of thoughts. When Wolfram says "harness … for human purposes" I have to ask which "humans" he is referring to. My sense is that he is referring to the elites. How the ruling class decides to implement AI to replace bureaucracy could lead, in short order, to a "Terminator", "Brave New World", or "I, Robot" scenario. Reply Álvaro MD says: June 15, 2019 at 3:57 pm How interesting is to watch as he exhibits his unshakable confidence and noticing that the world went all along in the complete opposite direction in terms of knowledge production and aggregation (with wikis, collaborations in general and now blockchain), a direction that no individualist project as his can ever meet. Therapy is the missing element here. Seeing his egomania in honest perspective would help him achieve true wisdom; if there’s no time for that, he could at least watch some of Chomsky’s et. al master classes in humbleness. And that, perhaps, could inspire a pathway by which he could one day become comparable to some of the great thinkers of our times, which all understand that the world is always too vast in comparison to any individual contribution. Arrogance + time: convergence to ridiculous. Reply Robert Schlesinger says: June 24, 2019 at 10:01 pm Nice talk, but WolframAlpha still has some mathematical glitches that yield incorrect answers, and this is a problem.
