M1018: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Splash Fall 2022 (Oct. 29, 2022)
Science keeps the scientists awake because of its unreasonable effectiveness. Machine learning is driving a lot of scientific explorations, helping science progress faster than it ever has before. We explore the fascinating world that is open to cutting edge inventions and discoveries. Will you be on board?

S686: Transcending Spacetime in Splash Spring 2021 (Mar. 13, 2021)
Imagine that there was just one theory – one equation – from which you could derive the whole of Physics, breaking free from the enormous jumble of formulae that you struggle with in high school and college. Thrilling, isn’t it? Well, there is hope. Perhaps the most deep-rooted common-sense notion about our world being three dimensional, with time as the fourth dimension, is now succumbing to a growing acknowledgment among eminent physicists (String Theorists, for example) that the universe may actually exist in as high as ten-dimensional space -- a perspective that would possibly pave the way to a profound revolution in our understanding of the universe. Although we are very far from experimentally verifying this theory, it carries the charismatic power to mathematically unify all the known physical forces in an astonishingly simple framework: the "Theory of Everything" that had eluded Einstein for several decades of his life. In this session, I will broadly explore some of the “magic” that could be witnessed in a world beyond our space and time. Ever wondered how a 4D creature would look like, if we ever encountered one? A lot of stuff could sound like science-fiction, but we cannot deny that we can find numerous examples of Sci-Fi from the past that have turned into reality today.
