Why Reality is a Hallucination.

There have always been hints that the brain wasn’t evolved to track objective reality, but a new, incredibly popular theory in neuroscience takes everything one step further. Not only is your brain not built for reality, you’ve never even experienced it. Noted Science Zaddy Kyle Hill explains “predictive processing.”

The US Army’s Plan to Conquer the Moon

“Project Horizon” was the US Army’s secret attempt in the 1960s to come up with a viable plan for long-term American colonization of the Moon. But with the Soviet Union already ahead in the space race, the hundreds of pages of classified reports also had to consider what would happen if a lunar base was […]

AsyncIO, await, and async – Concurrency in Python

This video from Socratica covers the asyncio module. The asyncio module in Python helps you use concurrency in your code. In this lesson, you’ll learn about subroutines & coroutines, concurrency vs. parallelism, and how to use the async/await keywords to create a coroutine, and to run a batch of coroutines using convenience functions in the […]

Are Quantum Algorithms More Efficient for Nonlinear Dynamics and Machine Learning

This video is from Institute for Pure & Applied Mathematics (IPAM). Recorded 06 October 2023. Abstract: Nonlinear dynamics play a prominent role in many domains and are notoriously difficult to solve. Whereas previous quantum algorithms for general nonlinear equations have been severely limited due to the linearity of quantum mechanics, we gave the first efficient […]

When Computers Write Proofs, What’s the Point of Mathematicians?

Andrew Granville knows that artificial intelligence will profoundly change math. The programming language Lean already plays a role in theorem proving. That’s why the University of Montreal number theorist has started talking to philosophers about the nature of mathematical proof — and how the discipline of mathematics might evolve in the age of AI.
