In 1935, John von Neumann met Ulam in Warsaw and invited him to visit the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. In 1944, Ulam was recruited to work on the Manhattan Project. He remained at Los Alamos after the war and played a seminal role in the development of the H-bomb.
By Gilead Amit. The Fields medals are considered the ultimate accolade in mathematics. First awarded in 1936, since 1950 up to four of them have been awarded every four years at the International Congress of Mathematicians, with the latest round due this August in Rio de Janeiro.

Its experts predicted that Russia would be able to defeat Germany in armed conflict within 20 years, prompting calls for a preventative war. And in the immediate post-WWII era, some thinkers in the United States, including philosopher Bertrand Russell and the mathematician John von Neumann, called for a ...
The book is about five Jewish-Hungarian-American scientists — known as the “Martians of Science” — considered geniuses in their fields: John von Neumann, the father of the modern computer; Theodore von Karman, the scientist behind the U.S. Air Force; Leo Szilard, the initiator of nuclear weapons; the ...
I mean, for instance, I would bet my life that my IQ is lower than John von Neumann's was. The chances of that being true are 100 percent. Of course this is mere speculation, but this is speculation that you could bet the fate of the world on. Despite what Turkheimer says in his article, in his tweets, you can ...
... research in the sciences and humanities. for more than 85 years, it has been the academic home for many scientists and researchers at the top of their fields, including j. robert oppenheimer, erwin panofsky, hetty goldman, homer a. thompson, john von neumann, george kennan, and clifford geertz.

This sensational 1954 Ferrari 500 Mondial raced extensively in California in the 1950s and was indeed driven by such heroes as Phil Hill, Richie Ginther, and John von Neumann. The car was recently comprehensively restored by the Classiche department in Maranello, during which a period-correct ...
“Real life consists of bluffing, of little tactics of deception, of asking yourself what is the other man going to think I mean to do,” she writes, quoting John von Neumann, the father of game theory. Coming from someone younger or dumber, Duke's eagerness in her interactions with me would have seemed ...
Iran seems to be playing what John Von Neumann dubbed “game theory.” The essence of this theory is that one player (Iran) is playing according to the best strategy of its opponent (the U.S.), which is to threaten to withdraw from the deal. According to Von Neumann, this strategy may not guarantee a ...
Bohm's paper proposed an entirely new way of understanding quantum physics—but that had been proven impossible 20 years before, by John von Neumann, the greatest mathematical genius alive. Searching Bohm's paper for errors, Bell quickly realized that there were none. Bohm had clearly found ...

So called neuromorphic computers operate under vastly different principles than conventional computers, such as laptops and mobile devices, all based on an architecture described by John von Neumann in 1945. In the von Neumann architecture, memory is separate from the central processing unit, ...
Aristotle practically invented half a dozen fields of study across philosophy. Galileo was as much a physicist as he was an engineer when he helped kick-start the scientific revolution. Da Vinci might have been even more famous as an inventor than an artist if his notebooks were ever published. Even in the ...
Consider a set of firms producing comparable goods. Each firm aims to strategically choose the selling price of their products in the market in order to maximize their expected income. However the income of each firm depends not only on his own chosen price but also on the chosen price by the other ...

The term “artificial intelligence” was coined in the late 1950s, but the idea of having machines that might think was introduced in the 1940s, when two of the early inventors of computers, Alan Turing and John von Neumann, wrote books about how the brain works and discussed whether computers could mimic it. AI as a field ...
The stark changes that we are seeing today have been forecasted by many people dating back to John von Neumann and Alan Turing in the 1930s during their foundational work in computer experimentation and nascent artificial intelligence theory.[v] More recently, our national and international ...

John von Neumann was one of the most versatile and brilliant mathematicians of all time. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1955 and died a year later after it spread quickly to his bones and brain. He had helped to develop both atomic and hydrogen bombs and was exposed to radioactivity while observing A-bomb ...
In 1937, a Hungarian mathematician, John von Neumann, began to court her. Von Neumann was also married at the time, but his divorce was in progress (his first wife, Mariette, had fallen in love with the acclaimed physicist J.B. Horner Kuper, both of whom would become two of the first employees of Long ...
If John von Neumann were designing a computer today, there's no way he would build a thick wall between processing and memory. At least, that's what computer engineer Naresh Shanbhag of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign believes. The eponymous von Neumann architecture was ...

The concept was first proposed by the Princeton mathematician John Von Neumann in the 1950s. What he said was that the singularity is an “event horizon," the moment beyond which “technological progress will become incomprehensively rapid, complicated,” unknowable and irreversible. And that ...
In 1948, a seed of several science fictions became reality with the efforts of John von Neumann, and the Church-Turing thesis: creating a machine for what you want it to do if you specify your wish precisely. People wanted an assistant to do the things that were too difficult for humans. In 1959, Alan Turing ...
Fun fact: John Von Neumann (1903-1957) was a world-class mathematician who emigrated to the US from Hungary, and became a citizen in 1937. His contributions were wide-ranging, but he is best known for his work in computer science. Von Neumann first applied binary numbers to computers, and he ...
And finally, the team of John Von Neumann succeeded in their efforts and they were all set to conduct the experiment which has the potential to change all the conventional concepts associated with 'time'. On the first test, the researchers made destroyer escort USS Eldridge for a very short period of time.
By John von Neumann in Fortune, June 1955. A look at the future of technology by one of the greatest minds of the 20th century. Emphasis in red.

One possibility, proposed by mathematician John von Neumann in the 1940s, would be to send robotic probes that clone themselves using raw materials mined from asteroids and then spread out across the galaxy.

The term was first used by John von Neumann (yes, the von Neumann) to describe tremendous change caused by technological process. Mr Kurzweil has always maintained that we will achieve singularity by 2045. There's another important milestone Mr Kurzweil often talks about. That's the ability of an AI ...

During the late 1940s and early 1950s, Lyndon LaRouche undertook an in-depth critique and refutation of the proposals of John von Neumann (Theory of Games and Economic Behavior—1944) and Norbert Wiener (Cybernetics: Or Control and Communication in the Animal and the Machine—1948).
