There is no obvious rule governing the formation of the number, and there is no rational way to guess the succeeding digits.

Biology Mathematics Computer science. He is today interested in questions of metabiology and information-theoretic formalizations of the theory of evolution.

They are random mathematical facts”. Citation Statistics Citations 0 10 20 ’08 ’11 ’14 ‘ He is considered to be one of the founders of what is today known as Kolmogorov or Kolmogorov-Chaitin complexity together with Andrei Kolmogorov and Ray Solomonoff.

In the epistemology randlmness mathematics, he claims that his findings in mathematical logic and algorithmic information theory show there are “mathematical facts that are true for no reason, they’re true by accident. In he was given the title of honorary professor by the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina, where his parents were born and where Chaitin spent part of his youth.


Randomness and Mathematical Proof

From This Paper Topics from this paper. Today, algorithmic information theory is a common subject in any computer science curriculum.

In recent writings, he defends a position known as digital philosophy. Please integrate the section’s contents into the article as a whole, or rewrite the material. Is the Kolmogorov complexity of computational intelligence bounded above? Some philosophers and logicians disagree with the philosophical conclusions that Chaitin has drawn from his theorems related to what Chaitin thinks is a kind of randomnss arithmetic randomness.

He has written more than 10 books that have been translated to about 15 languages. See our FAQ for additional information. Showing of 57 extracted citations. In his [second] paper, Chaitin puts forward the notion of Kolmogorov complexity If one were asked to speculate on how the series might chaiitin, one could predict with considerable confidence that the next two digits would be 0 and 1.

Chaitin also writes about philosophyespecially metaphysics and philosophy of mathematics particularly about epistemological matters in mathematics. In other projects Wikiquote. This article’s Criticism or Controversy section may compromise the article’s neutral point of view of the subject.

Wikiquote has quotations related to: Topics Discussed in This Paper. In he was given a Leibniz Medal [6] by Wolfram Research. In he was given the degree of doctor of science honoris causa by the University of Maine.


In metaphysics, Chaitin claims that algorithmic information theory is the key to solving problems in the field of biology obtaining a formal definition of ‘life’, its origin and evolution and neuroscience the problem of consciousness and the study of the mind. Data and Information Quality He attended the Bronx High School of Science and City College of New Yorkwhere he still in his teens developed the theory that led to his independent discovery of Kolmogorov complexity.
