Counterfactuals: the science of can and can't - Livestream

Physicist Chiara Marletto proposes a new way of thinking about laws of nature. Thinking about which laws are possible or impossible may generate an alternative way of providing explanations, and therefore new scientific theories.

In this talk, Chiara will explain this fascinating, far-reaching approach (known as Constructor Theory) which holds promise for revolutionising the way fundamental physics is formulated and for providing essential tools to face existing technological challenges, from delivering the next generation of information-processing devices beyond the universal quantum computer to designing AIs.

Chiara's new book on the subject, 'The Science of Can and Can't: A Physicist's Journey Through the Land of Counterfactuals', is available from amazon and all good bookshops.
