In this conversation, Kevin Schawinski talks to me about galaxies’ transition process, quantum mechanics, and machine learning. He also goes into detail about his Galaxy Zoo citizen science project and about Modulos.
What happened in the big bang?
What is a multiverse?
What is the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics?
What’s the future of artificial intelligence?
Will I ever have more than a cartoon understanding of these topics?
