Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

12/15/2005: Wolfram Science...

Via e-mail, this about an upcoming conference next summer:

Wolfram Science Conference, to be held June 16-18 in Washington, DC.

Stephen Wolfram's book A NEW KIND OF SCIENCE introduced us to a
new paradigm for doing science. And from this has now grown an
ever-more-energetic community that is developing the paradigm not
only in the sciences but also in technology, business, and the

The NKS 2006 Wolfram Science Conference will provide a unique
opportunity to connect with leading members of the NKS community,
to explore the exciting developments now underway, and to learn
how to apply the latest NKS ideas and methods to your own work.

In addition to a wide range of general and specialized
presentations, the conference will feature real-time computer
experiments by Stephen Wolfram and others, problem-solving
computer labs, an art gallery, opportunities for student
participation, and a variety of events intended to foster

NKS is a field that is now at a particularly exciting stage, and
there'll be a lot to discuss at the NKS 2006 Wolfram Science
Conference. Here are a few of the more ambitious questions now
coming over the horizon:
- Will algorithm mining revolutionize software development?

- Is there a core computational architecture in biological cells?

- Will generative content revolutionize the entertainment

- How will computer experiments change the face of mathematics?

- Are there business structures founded on computation

- What would an operating system for a swarm of microbots be

- What kinds of artificial physics can support quantum mechanics?

- Will artificial life arise spontaneously within the internet?

- Can one map the space of all possible economic systems?

- Will the next core computer architecture be discovered by

- Can we enumerate the morphologies of possible biological

- What pattern recognition algorithms can molecules implement?

- What does computational irreducibility mean for supercomputing?

- Is there an algorithm for telling if an object was designed?

- Will the most important nanomaterials be intrinsically random?

- Can a single rule design the complete structure of a building?

- Is there an absolute measure of elegance for programming

- What is the network analog of a recursive function?

- Can we find the simplest undecidable problem in number theory?

- What would prove the Principle of Computational Equivalence?

- What will happen if kids learn cellular automata before

- What will be the first major industry created by mining the
computational universe?
