The Emerging Science of Complexity

August 04, 2016

The Emerging Science of Complexity
Today, more than ever, we can better understand just how complex our world is, from social groups to economic markets to neurons in the brain and our immune systems. But will these new complexity frontiers complement contemporary physics or upend it completely?

Listen in to a discussion about the future of complexity with four distinguished speakers: Bernard Chazelle, PhD; Marcelo Gleiser, PhD; Michael Strevens, PhD; and Geoffrey West, PhD; with moderation from Scientific American's George Musser. This podcast features audio from the third event in our series, The Physics of Everything.
