What Can’t We Predict With Math?

Solar eclipses are fairly predictable, but the behavior of the stock market over the next couple days…not so much. But why? Is any given problem simply a matter of having a big enough computer and a complex enough algorithm to solve it, or are there certain things that lie beyond the realm of mathematical prediction? Watch mathematician Steven Strogatz, financial engineer Andrew Lo, social scientist James Fowler, and mechanical engineer Seth Lloyd discuss the uncertainty of soothsaying with numbers in this clip from “Go Figure,” a program from the Big Ideas series at the 2014 World Science Festival.

"You know, people think mathematics is complicated. But mathematics is the simple bit, it’s the stuff we can understand. It’s cats that are complicated. I mean, what is it in those little molecules and stuff that make one cat behave differently than another, or that make a cat? And how do you define a cat? I have no idea."
