Life, The Universe, and Everything

Posted by Damian Conway  on  May 23, 2014 2

Damian Conway explores quantum finite state automata, the power of Maxwell's information engine, the computational expressiveness of (un)natural languages, blending them all into a simple self-describing massively parallel auto-visualizing superpositional proof-by-simulation system. *Note: We're not able to use our standard split-screen view to show this, but wanted to bring it to you anyway.*
