Of course there are pitfalls and dangers for him — this is no different for anyone. I just wanted to point out that right now, as a 12 year old, his situation is interesting and newsworthy. We don’t have to speculate about his current worth based on his future as a genius, and we don’t have to paint him as flawed because he is a little bit immature about his view on modern physics problems. He’s 12.

As crazy as all of these ideas sound, what do they actually have to do with modern physics? Well it turns out there are many good arguments from physics, brain science, computing and other fields showing that realistic simulations are within our reach in the near future. In this talk George Smoot will discuss both the philosophical angle of the topic and how it is related to modern physics problems. For more similar talks visit the links below.
"High-temperature superconductivity is one of the most important unsolved modern physics problems today," said SIMES Director and paper co-author Zhi-Xun Shen. At level 2, students further develop in the core areas of study, with a focus on physics and applied mathematics. Level 3 involves advanced courses in physics and computational physics. Students undertake the final year honours program in theoretical or computational physics, which includes a research project and the option of specialised courses in computer science and mathematics. This enables students to apply their high-performance computing skills to modern physics problems.Atomic, molecular, and solid-state physics; semiconductors, lasers and nanotechnology; nuclear and particle physics; general relativity and cosmology. Emphasis on the use of quantitative reasoning to solve modern physics problems. Writing and scientific ethics assignments based on laboratory experiences. Lecture and laboratory. Writing, Quantitative Literacy and Ethics and Civic Responsibility are significant components of this course (QEP).
