If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Supported by the Foundational Questions Institute, a new MOOC (massive open online course) on the new and exciting field of "Algorithmic Information Dynamics" will be released on June 12ve by the Santa Fe Institute. The course offers a novel computational perspective to causality and living systems, from complex networks to reprogramming cells. You are all welcome to sign up for the course, for...

Hi Hector,

We've had a question from John Farrell on Twitter: Are there any prerequisites for the course?

Can anyone sign up, without any prior training? Will this be of particular interest for people that already have a certain level of training, or a certain background?

Thanks!

Thanks.

Yes, that link shows the prerequisites.

I can add that at times the course will get deep but we are trying to make it self-contained and much of it is a conceptual introduction to look at the right places vis a vis the new exciting field of algorithmic information dynamics. So there will be a lot of discussion that even if sometimes may get a bit technical will give a lot of insight on aspects such as entropy, computability, reprogrammability and algorithmic complexity.

By the way, there are still more than 100 scholarships available, meaning that even though everybody can watch the videos for free, with a scholarship they will have access to all the material and a certificate by the end of the course (after successfully passing a final exam). So, in summary, you should definitely get enrolled.
