Top 17 Computational Quotes

Words matter. These are the best Computational Quotes from famous people such as Tim Sweeney, Evgeny Morozov, Jensen Huang, Daniel Levitin, David Eagleman, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.

Within our lifetimes, we will be able to push out enough computational power to simulate reality.
Tim Sweeney
In addition to their ‘do no evil’ motto, Googlers have always been guided by another, much less explicit philosophy: ‘computational arrogance.’
Evgeny Morozov
I love that the work that we do is so vital to science. We’re in a lot of ways at the scientific front line. The work that we’re doing to build up the computational defense system for infectious diseases, whether it’s finding the vaccine as fast as possible this time or next time to detect early outbreaks.
Jensen Huang
I think of the brain as a computational device: It has a bunch of little components that perform calculations on some small aspect of the problem, and another part of the brain has to stitch it all together, like a tapestry or a quilt.
Daniel Levitin
The three-pound organ in your skull – with its pink consistency of Jell-o – is an alien kind of computational material. It is composed of miniaturized, self-configuring parts, and it vastly outstrips anything we’ve dreamt of building.
David Eagleman
In this metaphor we actually have a picture of the computational universe, a metaphor which I hope to make scientifically precise as part of a research program.
Seth Lloyd
In subjects that physicists think of as purely quantum, classical ideas and classical computational techniques can often be powerful.
Kip Thorne
Uber has an information advantage, a computational advantage. There’s massive structural advantages to the player who’s smartest about how to deploy cars, where to deploy cars, how to adjust pricing dynamics, how to ensure supply of drivers – the party that understands best the behavior of riders.
Chris Sacca
It is time to create new social science departments that reflect the breadth and complexity of the problems we face as well as the novelty of 21st-century science. These would include departments of biosocial science, network science, neuroeconomics, behavioral genetics and computational social science.
Nicholas A. Christakis
My father taught me Basic and rudimentary C, I learned everything else on my own, including studying computational complexity on my own. That’s more a function of my age than anything else though – back when I was in school there were hardly any programming classes.
Bram Cohen
An ultimate joint challenge for the biological and the computational sciences is the understanding of the mechanisms of the human brain, and its relationship with the human mind.
Tony Hoare
We basically created a computational unit out of two brains.
Miguel Nicolelis
The field of AI has traditionally been focused on computational intelligence, not on social or emotional intelligence. Yet being deficient in emotional intelligence (EQ) can be a great disadvantage in society.
Rana el Kaliouby
A computational device is incapable of developing a mind. We got consciousness not just by being clever.
Roger Penrose
Biotech 1.0 is slow, like a lab science, and Version 2.0 is more like computational sciences.
Steve Jurvetson
As Bromberger observed, rules are understood to be elements of the computational systems that determine the sound and meaning of the infinite array of expressions of a language; the information so derived is accessed by other systems in language use.
Noam Chomsky
I would suggest, merely as a metaphor here, but also as the basis for a scientific program to investigate the computational capacity of the universe, that this is also a reasonable explanation for why the universe is complex.
