MacArthur Genius and former Constructing Modern Knowledgeguest speaker Stephen Wolfram has published a new book and that’s always cause for celebration.

In Adventures of a Computational Explorer, “Wolfram takes the reader along on some of his most surprising and engaging intellectual adventures. From science consulting for a Hollywood movie, solving problems of AI ethics, hunting for the source of an unusual polyhedron, communicating with extraterrestrials, to finding the fundamental theory of physics and exploring the digits of pi, Adventures of a Computational Explorer captures the infectious energy and curiosity of one of the great pioneers of the computational world.”
