Interview with Samuel Arbesman: The Half Life of Facts
I’m happy to share with you my third conversation hosted at Klevr.org
In this conversation I talk with Dr. Arbesman about how facts change, how facts spread, and how humans assimilate information.
Samuel Arbesman is an applied mathematician and network scientist. He is a Senior Scholar at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and a fellow at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science at Harvard University. In addition, he writes for popular audiences as a contributor to Wired.com, and his essays about math and science have appeared in such places as the New York Times, The Atlantic, and the Ideas section of the Boston Globe. Arbesman’s first book, The Half-Life of Facts, is about how knowledge changes over time.
