Stephen Wolfram the Founder and CEO of Wolfram Research creator of Mathematica Wolfram Alpha and the Wolfram Language author of A New Kind of Science

Stephen Wolfram is known for his work in computer science, mathematics, and in theoretical physics. He is the founder and CEO of the software company Wolfram Research where he worked as chief designer of Mathematica and the Wolfram Alpha answer engine. His recent work has been on knowledge-based programming, expanding and refining the Wolfram Language, which is the programming language of the mathematical symbolic computation program Mathematica.

In April of 2020, Wolfram announced the Wolfram Physics Project as an effort to reduce and explain all the laws of physics within a paradigm of a hypergraph that is transformed by minimal rewriting rules which obey the Church-Rosser property. The effort is a continuation of the ideas he originally described in A New Kind of Science. The foundational idea is the exploration of the emergent complexity of abstract rewriting systems (termed “substitution system” on Wolfram MathWorld), where the systems explored mainly lie at a minimalist extreme. Most examples come from a rewriting system on ordered graphs; some concepts are illustrated by examples pertaining to string rewriting systems. Many of the computational phenomena obtained in these systems bear analogy to Wolfram’s previous investigations into cellular automata. This newly introduced ordered-graph system lends itself to geometrical interpretation in a way that cellular automata did not, and it is mainly these geometrical interpretations that provide an entry point into analogy with physical law. Wolfram claims that “From an extremely simple model, we’re able to reproduce special relativity, general relativity and the core results of quantum mechanics”. Physicists are generally unimpressed with Wolfram’s claim, and state that Wolfram’s results are non-quantitative and arbitrary. Stephen Wolfram and Christopher Wolfram were involved in helping create the alien language for the film, for which they used the Wolfram Language.

Daniel Dennett – Consciousness Explained. From Bacteria to Bach and Back. The Evolution of Minds.

Daniel Dennett Consciousness Explained From Bacteria to Bach and Back The Evolution of Minds WordPress blog

Daniel Dennett is undoubtedly one of the most influential, original, but also most controversial contemporary thinkers in the philosophy of mind. As a representative of a consistently naturalistic view of complex topics such as consciousness, intentionality and free will, he is one of the few philosophers who are known beyond the disciplinary boundaries, especially in the circles of cognitive neuroscience. Dennett’s main concern is to reconcile our everyday understanding of consciousness and personality with scientific ideas about mental processes and to put it on an evolutionary basis. Daniel C. Dennett books: Content and Consciousness, appeared in 1969, followed by Brainstorms (1978), Elbow Room (1984), The Intentional Stance (1987), Consciousness Explained (1991), Darwin’s Dangerous Idea (1995), Kinds of Minds (1996), and Brainchildren: A Collection of Essays 1984-1996 (MIT Press and Penguin, 1998), Freedom Evolves (Viking Penguin, 2003), Sweet Dreams: Philosophical Obstacles to a Science of Consciousness , was published in 2005 by MIT Press, Breaking the Spell (Viking, 2006). He co-edited The Mind’s I with Douglas Hofstadter in 1981. He is the author of over four hundred scholarly articles on various aspects on the mind, published in journals ranging from Artificial Intelligence and Behavioral and Brain Sciences to Poetics Today and The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism. His most recent books are Intuition Pumps and Other Tools for Thinking (Norton, 2013), Caught in the Pulpit: Leaving Belief Behind, with co-author Linda LaScola (Amazon.com, 2013), and From Bacteria to Bach and Back: The Evolution of Minds (Norton, 2017). He gave the John Locke Lectures at Oxford in 1983, the Gavin David Young Lectures at Adelaide, Australia, in 1985, the Tanner Lecture at Michigan in 1986, and the Copernicus Center for Interdisciplinary Studies at Krakow in 2017, among many others.

The Deutscher Filmpreis (German Film Awards, also called Lola Awards) is an annual German awards ceremony honouring cinematic achievements in the German film business. It is the most important German movie award and the most highly endowed German cultural award with cash prizes totalling about three million euros.

From 1951 to 2004 it was awarded by a commission, but since 2005 the award has been organized by the German Film Academy (Deutsche Filmakademie). The Federal Commissioner for Cultural and Media Affairs has been responsible for the administration of the prize since 1999. The awards ceremony is traditionally held in Berlin. Since 2017, Pantaflix became the official partner of the German Film Awards.

The 70th presentation of the German Film Award will be something special. It can be seen live for the first time on Friday, April 24, 2020, at 10.15 p.m. in the first. The ARD joint production is created under the leadership of Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (rbb). Live show without guests The actor and entertainer Edin Hasanovic leads the show, together with a DJ and a dog. There are no guests on site in a 2400 sqm studio hall. But Edin Hasanovic is still in good company. Laudators such as Anke Engelke, Charly Hübner, Iris Berben, Jannis Niewöhner and many others will come to the studio for a short visit or be added from home. And even the kangaroo gets involved! The State Minister for Culture and the Media, Monika Grütters, and the Academy President Ulrich Matthes are live in the studio to jointly award the prizes in the “Best Feature Film” category.

Comic legend Stan Lee is dead. The inventor of heroes such as Spider-Man, Iron Man and Black Panther died at the age of 95.

Stan Lee’s first story about Captain America in 1941 shaped and changed the comic world for decades. With the help of the illustrators Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, he created complex heroes for the Marvel Publishing House.
The special thing was not that they were superhuman – but often just as human as we are.

These are the 10 best Stan Lee cameos in the Marvel films:Der Skeptiker in “Avengers”
The hairdresser in “Thor: Ragnarok”
The gambler in “Black Panther”
The smartass in “The Hulk”
The mentor in “Spider-Man 3”

The Brain Games on National Geographic.

TV Show The Brain

The Brain Games show. National Geographic TV Series.

Brain Games is an American popular science television series that explores cognitive science by focusing on illusions, psychological experiments, and counterintuitive thinking. The series debuted on National Geographic in 2011 as a special. Its return as an original series in 2013 set a record for the highest premiere rating for any National Geographic original series with 1.5 million viewers. The seventh season aired in 2016.

Neil Patrick Harris was the unseen narrator in the first season, replaced by Jason Silva for the remainder of the series as its host and presenter; in addition, sleight-of-hand artist Apollo Robbins has been a frequent consultant and illusionist guest on the show. The show is interactive, encouraging television viewers, often along with a handful of live volunteers, to engage in visual, auditory, and other cognitive experiments, or “brain games”, that emphasize the main points presented in each episode.

The series is deemed acceptable for use toward E/I credits, and Litton Entertainment added repurposed reruns of the show to its One Magnificent Morning block in fall 2017.

In December 2019, it was announced that a new format of this series, hosted by Keegan-Michael Key, would premiere in 2020.
