Gregory & Virginia Chaitin Conference and Live Broadcast at Africa Business School

As part of its recent launch, the Chair of Complexities ∞ Humanities was delighted to welcome Gregory and Virginia Chaitin at Africa Business School on January 18th. This occasion honored the outstanding contributions of the exceptional couple. Currently residents of the Institute for Advanced Studies until June 2024, their work was celebrated in an enlightening conference.
During the conference, Virginia Chaitin, an esteemed Researcher, highlighted the challenges faced by interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research rooted in entrenched disciplinary silos. On the other side, Gregory Chaitin, a renowned mathematician and computer scientist, shared his insights on the theme “You can change the world”. His conference delved into the idea that imaginative new ideas have the potential to provoke radical technological transformations but often encounter substantial economic and political pushback.
Following the conference, an engaging live session was organized, where the Chaitins were interviewed by Najib El Mokhtari during a live broadcast. This additional event provided an opportunity for a deeper exploration of the Chaitins’ insights and experiences, further enriching the intellectual engagement of the audience.
