Is Wolfram Physics the next
scientific revolution?

For the last few hundred years, all our theories of physics have been mathematical.

If Stephen Wolfram is right, from now on, our most fundamental theories of physics may be computational.

This shift from mathematics to computation feels to me like a scientific revolution.

In last week’s excerpt from my conversation with Jonathan Gorard, I asked him whether it feels to him, too, like a scientific revolution.

“I think so,” he said. “I mean, it’s a strong statement, but I don’t think it’ll end up being too inaccurate.”

Here’s why, in my mind, Wolfram Physics is the next scientific revolution.

This is the first episode of The Last Theory I’ve recorded from my winter quarters in the Yukon, so if you watch the video, you’ll notice the change of background.

And yes, it is cold outside!
