In 2015 he recieved the KTH great price.”By expanding and developing our perspective of mathematics and the universe, we increase our knowledge of the cosmos,” the university’s citation reads. “The physicist and cosmologist Max Tegmark combines a solid research career with equal parts courage, ingenuity and creativity, by developing innovative ideas and tools.”
He is also known for his research on artificial intelligence and is cofounder to Future of Life Institute. Max Tegmark is author of the bestselling books “Our mathematical universe” and “Life 3.0” and has participated in TED2018 and Sommar i P1.
FPIRC – with Passion for Knowledge
Since the start in 1996, the Forest Products Industry Research College FPIRC has coordinated courses for the processes and materials from the forest – always with a strong scientific focus and with a passion for knowledge!
As FPIRC’s activities are becoming a part of the national research platform Treesearch, a symposium will be held at KTH on November 14. The lecture with Max Tegmark is part of this symposium and is open for all interested. FPIRC especially welcomes students!
