(Meet us on lvl 2 in the fishbowl) Dinner is in our usual location, at 6pm.
Scott Aaronson of mathy brainpower is dropping by Australia. Let's celebrate!
"Most of my research deals with two questions: first, what are the ultimate limits on what can feasibly be computed in the physical world? Second, how can studying those limits shed light on basic issues in physics and cosmology? The first question involves bringing physics into computational complexity theory; the second, bringing computational complexity theory into physics."
