CaludeMichael A. He is today interested in questions of metabiology and information-theoretic formalizations of the theory of ad. A K Peters, Ltd. This paper has citations. In his [second] paper, Chaitin puts forward the notion of Kolmogorov complexity Data and Information Quality Skip to search form Skip to main content.


Gregory Chaitin

There is no obvious rule governing the formation of the number, and there is no rational way to guess the succeeding digits. Is the Kolmogorov complexity of computational intelligence bounded above? He attended the Bronx High Ranomness 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.

Inspection of the second series of digits yields no such comprehensive pattern. This page was last edited on 10 Decemberat FisherEitel J. Showing of 57 extracted citations.

In the epistemology of 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 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. Chaitin is also the originator of using graph coloring to do register allocation in compiling, a process known as Chaitin’s algorithm. In other projects Wikiquote.
