Lex Fridman interviews Sean Carroll in this thought provoking interview.

Sean Carroll is a theoretical physicist at Caltech and Santa Fe Institute specializing in quantum mechanics, arrow of time, cosmology, and gravitation. He is the author of several popular books including his latest on quantum mechanics (Something Deeply Hidden) and is a host of a great podcast called Mindscape. This conversation is part of the Artificial Intelligence podcast.

This is the second time Sean has been on the podcast. You can watch the first time here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-NJrvyRo0c

In this nature video explains Google’s recent announcement on reaching a major quantum computing milestone.

Google says they have reached ‘quantum supremacy’ with their quantum computer ‘Sycamore’. Nature reporter Elizabeth Gibney explains what this means, why IBM disagree, and the significance for quantum computing.

Dani, a game developer, recently made a game and decided to train an AI to play it.

A couple of weeks ago I made a video “Making a Game in ONE Day (12 Hours)”, and today I’m trying to teach an A.I to play my game!

Basically I’m gonna use Neural Networks to make the A.I learn to play my game.

This is something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’m really happy I finally got around to do it. Some of the biggest inspirations for this is obviously carykh, Jabrils & Codebullet!

Leonard Susskind is a professor of theoretical physics at Stanford University, and founding director of the Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics.

He is widely regarded as one of the fathers of string theory and in general as one of the greatest physicists of our time both as a researcher and an educator.

This conversation is part of Lex Fridman’s Artificial Intelligence podcast.

Sean Carroll is a theoretical physicist at Caltech, specializing in quantum mechanics, gravity, and cosmology. He is the author of several popular books: one on the arrow of time called From Eternity to Here, one on the Higgs boson called The Particle at the End of the Universe, and one on science and philosophy called The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself.

He has an upcoming book on Quantum Mechanics that you can preorder now called Something Deeply Hidden.

This is a great interview with Lex Fridman.

Here’s an enlightening conversation with the famed theoretical physicist, futurist, and co-founder of String Field Theory, Michio Kaku. This fireside chat from IO19 covers a range of topics from quantum computing, how AI can improve our quality of life, to potential life on Mars and why he is determined to complete Einstein’s theory of everything.

Time is something we all experience and wish we had more of. But what exactly is time?

From Boltzmann to quantum theory, from Einstein to loop quantum gravity, our understanding of time has been undergoing radical transformations. Carlo Rovelli brings together physics, philosophy and art to unravel the mystery of time.
