Towards a Computational Theory of Everything
- First Online:
Is there any common algorithmic principle behind the evolution of the universe, of life, of the mind? Should the currently prevailing computational paradigms which are limited by the Church-Turing thesis be revised in favor of more powerful ones? Can real systems exist whose computational power is provably greater than that of Turing machines? Is there a computational theory of everything? These are provocative questions that should be on the agenda of computer science for the next decade.
