The other modern physics: consciousness, AI, and information theory

The mind, or what does consciousness mean anyhow?

Information Theory: What does "information" mean in modern physics?

Artificial intelligences

Most people hear modern physics and think Einstein and E=mc². Certain individuals will also call to mind Schroedinger's cat. But just as scientists are delving into the macroscopic universe and the microscopic atom, so are some researching that curious collection of biological matter, the human mind.

All three of the above topics are related in that they deal with our minds: what information is, how we process it and decide what to keep and what to discard, and how we could go about making other minds like ours.

Actually, everything on this website is intricately connected, for our minds are the windows through which we discern the wonderfully absurd universe around us.
