Why is it that fundamental laws discovered through pure mathematics have been able to describe our physical world with such precision? Given that the universe is comprised of mathematical properties, some have posited that mathematics is the language of the universe, whose laws reveal what a hidden order in the natural world. Physicist S. James Gates, Jr. and science writer Margaret Wertheim explore the uncanny ability of mathematics to reveal the laws of nature.

 

Discovering the true nature of reality may ultimately hinge on grasping the nature of human understanding. What are the fundamental elements or building blocks of human cognition? And how will the rise of superintelligent machines challenge our ideas about cognition, reality, and the limits of human understanding? Logician/mathematician Roger Antonsen and computer science pioneer Barbara J. Grosz join Steve Paulson to break down the fundamental elements of human understanding and analyze what lies ahead on the horizon of AI.

The prevalent view in cognitive science is that we construct our perception of reality in real time. But could we be misinterpreting our perceptual experiences?

Cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman and neurologist Suzanne O’Sullivan analyze the implications of these questions for our understanding of consciousness.
