Physics and Chemistry have made enormous advances in our understanding of matter, during the last few century. Recently, great progress has been made in the study of experience, in a wide range of interdisciplinary areas, from Biology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology to Artificial Intelligence and in particular Machine Learning.
Are we now reaching a point that we can confidently talk about the nature of Reality, as something that we are beginning to unravel? Or is the question of the nature of reality ill posed, not something that has any clear answer? Or does it remain an intriguing question, perhaps the most intriguing question in science and philosophy, and if so how so?
Join Piet Hut, President of YHouse, and Professor of Astrophysics and Head of the Program in Interdisciplinary Studies at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, for a lively discussion, following his short presentation.
