A trio of international scientists were awarded Tuesday’s Nobel Prize in Physics for their pioneering work in finding the order in complexity. This laid the groundwork for computer models which explore the effects human activities have on the global climate.
Half was given to Giorgio Parisi, an Italian university called Sapienza. He received the prize for discovering patterns in order and disorder on scales that range from molecules to whole planets. The Royal Swedish Academy of Science announced that his work allows him to explain seemingly random phenomena across physics, neuroscience, and machine learning.
