Neil Turok 14 by Ella portrait smOn Tuesday, November 19th Ramsay Talks will present Perimeter Institute Director Neil Turok on the power of our minds to uncover nature’s deepest secrets and how that basic knowledge drives nearly all our progress.

 

“What’s coming will likely be even more significant than any past transformation,” Turok says.

 

A gifted cosmologist and communicator, Turok will explain how discoveries in basic physics underpin advances in technology, what current data reveals about the simplicity of the universe, and why the coming quantum revolution will reshape society in ways we can barely fathom.

 

Turok will reveal how basic physics  drives the innovation chain – from theory, to experiment, to commercialization.  He will specifically share:

 

- How centuries of deep investigations have expanded human knowledge, laid the ground for other sciences, yielded powerful technologies, and opened new horizons for humanity.

 

- The latest results from the Large Hardron Collider and the Planck Satellite – on scales ranging from a billionth the size of an atom to 10 trillion times larger than our solar system – plus his views on how current data reveal a stunning simplicity in our universe.  

 

- Insights into the bizarre world of quantum physics – where the latest theories and experiments are leading us, what new technologies are set to emerge, and why this matters to you.

 

 “We have already seen how mobile communication and the internet are opening up global society, providing information and education on a scale vastly larger than ever before,” Turok says.  “But this is only the beginning of how our new technologies will change us.”
