Outline of Q&A

0:00 Stream starting

4:40 Stephen intro & update

1:10:45 since turing-complete systems can emulate other systems, isn't in a sense true that every turing-complete can represent our universe? Thus many rules might well represent what happens.Also could you discuss about the complexity of translating between different computational models that represent the same thing? if I can emulate a cellular automata step with an exponential number of turing-machines steps, doesn't it make the cellular automata more poverful?

1:16:00 On my wishlist for this update: (1) A succinct overview of the preliminary general and specific findings so far. (2) Challenges at the moment (3) Development of Wolfram technologies specific to the Physics project

1:19:46 [Question] Wolfram Math to English translator?

1:24:52 Can it be considered that Universe calculation will be reduced to a trivial state, and from there start just like from initial condition? reminding Penrose CCC equiv

1:26:55 Hello Mr Wolfram,What are your views on the theory of the Universe being a simulation as proposed by Nick Bostrom

1:33:35 What would it mean for the Wolfram Physics Project if quantum computers are going to work?

1:39:00 How much "time" is there between; 1) The start of our Universe's Automata Rule and 2) The Inflation of the Big Bang?

1:50:00 hello Dr. Wolfram would you kindly elaborate a little bit on your ideas of brachial space and how it may relate to ideas of ads/CFT, and the possibility of using same to send information? thanks!

1:58:00 Hello, what happens to the dimensions of space on sub-Planck sizes?

2:02:15 will you talk about the connection to the lowest dimensional space of the monster group as it relates to superstring as it relates to wolfram physics?

2:00:00 Another thing that's really interesting is the metamathematical conclusions that's coming out of your work as a kind of lucky side-effect, could you speak a little about this?

2:07:59 My naieve question: if some constants of nature can be calculated via math, is the universe itself a machine doing these calculations for us with reality as a result?

2:08:17 When generating the computational hyper graphs how do you ensure that the algorithm which determines the rendering placement does not interfere with your observations?

2:09:29 Speed of light is different depending on the medium it travels through i.e. vacuum, water etc, what medium is rulial space in this context?
