Time is Real, Space is an Illusion, Says Prominent Physicist

STAUTON, Va., July 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — “Space is an illusion,” says Lee Smolin, co-founder of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, “but time is really real.” Smolin is the author of the new book, Einstein’s Unfinished Revolution, and the guest for a podcast that takes off like a particle accelerator and doesn’t stop until what Smolin calls “The Completion” — the blending of Einstein’s relativity theory with quantum mechanics.

Those are just some of the amazing revelations by a world-renowned physicist chasing the biggest breakthrough in modern science: the application of quantum mechanics to Newtonian reality. The 90-minute podcast is a trip through the history of science with an emphasis on particle physics. Guiding the discussion is host Jim Rutt, a co-founder of the Santa Fe Institute and Smolin’s colleague.

In an interview that ranges from the outer edges of the multiverse to the inner particles of an atom, these are some of the topics covered on The Jim Rutt Show with Lee Smolin:

  • The Pilot Wave Theory applies to Matter, not just Light
  • The Multiverse + The Many-Worlds of Murray Gell-Mann
  • The Friendship between Albert Einstein and David Bohm
  • Cosmology, Black Holes and The Life of the Cosmos
  • Entanglement, Non-Locality and Schrodinger’s Cat
  • Einstein’s Unfinished Revolution and “The Completion”

The Jim Rutt Show is an interview podcast series examining cutting-edge thinking in science and technology and the future of our economic, political and social systems and institutions. Recent guests include journalist and science fiction author, Cory Doctorow; artificial intelligence pioneer, Dr. Ben Goertzel; George Mason University economist, Robin Hanson; and Carnegie Mellon University physicist, Simon DeDeo.

Connected Health Summit to Focus on AI and Personalization in Special Session Featuring Ada Health, Validic, and Optum

DALLAS, July 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Parks Associates research finds 23% of US broadband households have either a smart watch with fitness-tracking abilities or a digital pedometer/fitness tracker with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connectivity. The research firm will explore the implications from the proliferation of connected medical devices at the sixth annual Connected Health Summit: Independent Living and Wellness, August 27-29 at the Pendry San Diego in San Diego, California, including how these capabilities can help the elderly and those living with chronic conditions to live independently at home. Parks Associates finds 57% of heads of US broadband households report at least one chronic condition and 28% have two or more.

“AI applied to healthcare includes a collection of technologies that enable machines to sense, interpret, act, and learn,” said Brad Russell, Research Director, Connected Home, Parks Associates. “With the evolution of data analytics, healthcare services will exponentially expand their ability to leverage artificial intelligence for independent living and wellness use cases.”

The application of various forms of AI to IoT products and services promises to disrupt a variety of vertical industries, including healthcare. The session “AI in Health: Creating Personalized Insights” explores how AI and machine learning are advancing healthcare insights and how consumer-reported data from wearables and connected health and home devices can help improve outcomes. It also addresses ongoing challenges in making the most of this new wealth of health data while also securing sensitive personal health information.


  • Brenda Cass, Data Science Strategist, Validic
  • Jeff Cutler, Chief Commercial Officer, Ada Health
  • Kerrie Holley, Technology Fellow, Optum

“The application of data science in healthcare is reaching an inflection point,” said Brenda Cass, Data Science Strategist, Validic. “By leveraging AI and analytics, especially as applied to patient-generated health data, we are better able to predict negative health outcomes before they occur, enabling individuals to better self-manage their health – outside of the clinical setting.”

“Among the most important transformations happening in healthcare today is a shift towards consumer-centric, value-based healthcare to an increasingly connected, quantified patient,” said Jeff Cutler, Chief Commercial Officer, Ada Health. “At Ada, we’re combining medical knowledge, AI-based technology, and connected health devices to empower individuals with more insight into their personal health and make high-quality healthcare accessible to everyone.”

By aligning on Healthcare, Industrial, Retail and Smart City use cases, Advantech and Clovity together are innovating these sectors by enabling mass data collection from business’ or cities’ most crucial assets with relative ease.
