340 West Hall Map
Abstract: This talk will discuss my current views about the basic science and the practical applications of phenomena in the computational universe of simple programs. I'll talk about my current ideas about modeling, abstraction, and mining the computational universe for technology. I'll also talk about implications for AI, SETI, and basic questions about the role of humans in the computational universe.

About: Stephen Wolfram is the creator of Mathematica, Wolfram|Alpha and the Wolfram Language; the author of A New Kind of Science; and the founder and CEO of Wolfram Research. In recognition of his early work in physics and computing, Wolfram became in 1981 the youngest recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship. Following his scientific work on complex systems research, in 1986 Wolfram founded the first journal in the field: Complex Systems.
