Think: Digital Futures
Think: Digital Futures tells stories from the digital age. Each episode explores how today’s technology is transforming tomorrow — from our biology, habits, relationships, spaces to our place in the universe.
We've relaunched! We're back with a new look and format, shifting to a seasonal release. In the first episode of our new season, we're tackling the biggest question of our time: does anyone actually care whether or not we’re living in a computer simulation?
As our understanding of the universe expands, the question of whether we’re living in a computer simulation has shifted from the domain of philosophers into a problem for astrophysics. Because at their astonishingly fast rate of discovery, astrophysicists will be the first ones to know.
This episode features: Martin Bell (University of Technology Sydney) and Geraint Lewis (Sydney University).
