Show Information

In the whacky world of science, we had theorists like Isaac Newton and experimentalists such as Robert Hooke. Professor Pankaj Pankaj (The University of Edinburgh) champions a third category: simulators. He believes most experiments are as passé as a disco ball in a modern nightclub. From evaluation of nuclear power plants, to design of orthopaedic implants, Pankaj declares computer simulations as the superheroes of science, engineering and medicine – closer to reality, budget-friendly, and with fewer risks than a cup of herbal tea. But is he right? Join Pankaj and debate the future of science!
