Lec 31 - TEDxCaltech - Alexander Szalay - Cosmology: Science in an Exponential World

Lec 31 - TEDxCaltech - Alexander Szalay - Cosmology: Science in an Exponential World. Alexander Szalay is the Alumni Centennial Professor of Astronomy at the Johns Hopkins University.  He is also Professor in the Department of Computer Science.  Alex is a cosmologist, working on the statistical measures of the spatial distribution of galaxies and galaxy formation. He was born and educated in Hungary and is now a Corresponding Member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, as well as a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He has written over 450 papers in various scientific journals, covering areas from theoretical cosmology to observational astronomy, spatial statistics and computer science. In 2004 he received an Alexander Von Humboldt Award in Physical Sciences and a Microsoft Award for Technical Computing in 2008. About TEDx, x = independently organized event: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.) On January 14, 2011, Caltech hosted TEDxCaltech, an exciting one-day event to honor Richard Feynman, Nobel Laureate, Caltech physics professor, iconoclast, visionary, and all-around "curious character."
