Lens of Computation on the Sciences
What do quantum interference, flocking of birds, Facebook communities, and stock prices have in common?
Many natural and social phenomena may be viewed as inherently computational; they evolve patterns of information that can be described algorithmically and studied through computational models and techniques. A series of talks by experts will highlight new insights and future challenges in this interaction of computational theory with physics, social sciences, economics, and biology.
This conference is organized by Avi Wigderson.
