And therefore if for any reason whatsoever someone needs a comment from a Nobel laureate, they ask me. For, even with my limited insight into the dynamics of magnetic interactions or the basics of combinatorial calculus (a term wisely left off the book’s cover), I did grasp the main thrust of Parisi’s argument: We live in an intricate web of ever more complicated dynamics, but that web is shaped, stretched, and spun by our little choices and chats.

In a humorous way, it was, like an integer raised to the power-of-a-half results in the square root.I was busy running the Accademia dei Lincei, I had my work at the university, and the day after I had to do 20 interviews over Zoom and so on. Our viewpoint was that if one decides to kill some human being, that decision should be taken by people and not machines.

One direct descendant is artificial intelligence, in the sense that work on spin glasses has been very important for a lot of developments in studying neural networks in the 1980s and 90s, and neural networks are the basis of modern artificial intelligence.

When the flock was turning, the impression that one has is that they are turning as a flock, but the reality is that some birds start to turn in advance and the others follow.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. It all starts with investigating the principles of physics by observing the sophisticated flight patterns of starlings. In between, there are chapters on Italian physicists he knows, his own history, which began in university in the keystone year of 1968, which he explains in detail, and anecdotes about other physicists and school in Italy.You begin by writing about your study of starling murmurations, which seems an unusual subject for a physicist to tackle. I was really excited for what I thought this book was (a book from a Nobel prize winning physicist about complex systems) and ended up reading a memoir/essay collection instead. Along the way, he reflects on the lessons he has taken from a life in pursuit of scientific truth: the importance of serendipity to the discovery of new ideas, the surprising kinship between physics and other disciplines, and the value of science to a thriving society. It is important to understand how scientific consensus is achieved, how individual discoveries become validated by the scientific community. My suspicions arose when I opened the file and found it was only 94 pages, divided over eight tiny chapters.
