Free to members!
Volumes continues! Join Distinguished Visiting Professor Steven Strogatz and author Ananyo Bhattacharya for an online discussion of Ananyo's The Man from the Future, a biography of one of the most fascinating and visionary thinkers in the history of mathematics. John von Neumann, who was born in Budapest in 1903, went on to astonish the world with foundational insights into quantum mechanics, atomic warfare, Cold War politics, game theory, and even evolutionary biology. His Princeton colleagues believed he had the fastest brain in all humanity, and from his deathbed he revealed theories of how all limitations on human — and mechanical — computational powers might be overcome.
