The future of technological progress

Forecasting the rate of technological progress by harnessing empirical regularities captured by Moore’s law and Wright’s law.

The London Institute for Mathematical Sciences gives scientists freedom and support to make fundamental discoveries.


Replica clustering

We optimize Bayesian data clustering by mapping the problem to the statistical physics of a gas and calculating the lowest entropy state.
