Description

To accomplish the extraordinary, you must seek extraordinary people. — James Lee Byars

This two day retreat brings together the top minds, thinkers and doers, in the physics of the universe both theoretical and experimental and in cross-cutting science and technology areas that impact our views and our research. The meeting fosters exchange and celebrates differences in thinking that provoke insightful discussions. We avoid standard prepared talks, and focus on exciting forefront issues spawned by new results and ideas.  The summit this year is inspired by quantum information as a technology and theory framework at many scales, by recent and upcoming results from gravitation, cosmology & astronomy, the evolution of the DM searches, and  by paradigm breaking ideas in string theory, gravity and cosmology. In 2014 we held a  session at CUSP dedicated to  data-driven intelligence technologies being adopted in the tech and science domains.  POTUS2017 will press on the discussion on  data-driven intelligence and general AI work that is pursued in  industry and in science domains and probe associated puzzles and theoretical underpinnings.   POTUS is held under the Chatham House Rule.
