- Don Hoffman, cog sci, Somerset House, Sept. 17, 2019
In this episode Donald Hoffman, Professor of Cognitive Sciences at the University
of California, Irvine, puts forward the radical proposal that everything we perceive
as reality, in fact bears little relation to the ‘real’ world in which we live. His
work is based on evolution and rigorous modelling, and reflects on Nick’s mission
to build a machine that translates spoken language into the audible sensation of its
meaning. Don is an author of over 100 scientific papers and three books, including
Visual Intelligence, and his new book, The Case Against Reality.
