The character of physical Law by Richard Feynman - Full AUDIOBOOK

spam

Collecting legendary lectures from freewheeling scientific genius Richard P. Feynman, The Character of Physical Law is the perfect example of Feynman's gift for making complex subjects accessible and entertaining. Here Richard Feynman gives his own unique take on the puzzles and problems that lie at the heart of physics, from Newton's Law of Gravitation to mathematics as the supreme language of nature, from the mind-boggling question of whether time can go backwards to the exciting search for new scientific laws. Using simple everyday illustrations to bring out the essence of a complicated principle - for example the surprising parallels between the law of conservation of energy and drying yourself with wet towels ­- these lectures are a brilliant example of Feynman's mind in action.

111- Part 2: John Preskill – Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelligence, and Encountering Richard Feynman

Into the Impossible With Brian Keating

Learn about the exciting promise of quantum computing and how it may solve problems in fundamental physics.Join my mailing list to get slides from this conversation: briankeating.com.We went deep…discussing Artificial Intelligence, the simulation hypothesis, lessons from Richard Feynman and more! You don’t want to miss his answers to my patented Thrilling Three final questions!John Preskill is the Richard P. Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics at the California Institute of Technology, where he is also the Director of the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter. He is one of the most prolific and influential scientists of our time. Preskill is a leading scientist in the field of quantum information science and quantum computation, and he is known for coining the term “quantum supremacy.”Preskill studied magnetic monopoles in Grand Unified Theories. This work pointed out serious flaws in the then-current cosmological models, a problem which was later addressed by Alan Guth and others by proposing the idea of cosmic inflation. He’s the Director of the Institute for Quantum Information at Caltech. He is known for coining the term “Quantum Supremacy” in a 2012 paper. Preskill has achieved some notoriety in the popular press as a party to a number of bets involving fellow theoretical physicists Stephen Hawking and Kip Thorne.
