In many ways it’s the ultimate question in science: how does our universe work? Is there a fundamental theory? In this talk, Stephen Wolfram will discuss his bold effort to use what he’s learned from exploring computational systems to build a fundamental theory of all of physics.


Stephen Wolfram is the creator of Mathematica, Wolfram|Alpha and the Wolfram Language; the author of A New Kind of Science; the originator of the Wolfram Physics Project; and the founder and CEO of Wolfram Research. Over the course of more than four decades, he has been a pioneer in the development and application of computational thinking—and has been responsible for many discoveries, inventions and innovations in science, technology and business.
