The history of knowledge is one of drawing new maps and using new codes.  This has generated not just knowledge but the wealth of the world.  We transitioned from an industrial revolution to a digital age and now we’re transitioning into a period where life sciences will become the single biggest driver of the global economy.  This too is a story of discovery, maps, and codes.  Come join a free-wheeling discussion on where the world is going and why physicists, as happened in the 1950’s and 60’s, may end up driving biology.
