Andrey V. Korotaev's presentation at the conference Humanities vs Sciences
Andrey Korotaev, head of the Laboratory, took part in the conference "Humanities vs Sciences & the Knowledge Accelerating in Modern World: Parallels and Interaction", organized by MIPT-Phystech.
Andrey V. Korotaev participated in the section "History and Cliodynamics" presenting a report "On the Mathematical Modeling of the Processes of Great History". The report is devoted to the issue of singularity on a planetary scale (on the example of the Earth). A.V. Korotaev says that there are reasons to assume the existence of fairly strict global macroevolutionary laws that describe the processes of development on Earth over several billion years. Also Andrey V. Korotaev shows that despite the complexity of the mentioned processes, they can be conveyed by a fairly understandable mathematical apparatus. This suggested that technological development on the planet would accelerate, but this acceleration has its limit. After the "inflection point" technological development will begin to slow down.
A recording of the performance is available via the hyperlink (begins at 16:50).
