02-37 What To Simulate

  • 0:00 - 0:05
    What's the time of sunset tomorrow? For sure, we can answer that by simulation.
  • 0:05 - 0:09
    We already simulated the motion of the moon around the earth
  • 0:09 - 0:12
    and in the similar way, we can simulate the motion of the earth around the sun
  • 0:12 - 0:14
    and the rotation of the earth.
  • 0:14 - 0:17
    Are dolphins more intelligent than elephants?
  • 0:17 - 0:24
    To answer this question by simulation which we try our model of how intelligence develops
  • 0:24 - 0:31
    and depends on biology, that is pretty hard to do and may be impossible.
  • 0:31 - 0:36
    Can neutrinos travel faster than light? That's something that physicists have to measure.
  • 0:36 - 0:40
    You could imagine the model that contains more fundamental objects than neutrinos
  • 0:40 - 0:45
    super strings for instance and the neutrinos could be simulated using super strings,
  • 0:45 - 0:52
    but that's again far from the current state of the art and may be impossible.
  • 0:52 - 0:54
    Who invented the telephone?
  • 0:54 - 1:00
    To answer that question, you would have to model all of human history inside the computer
  • 1:00 -
    That doesn't sound plausible.
