‘IF/THEN’ – Chance, (Un)certainty, and the Search for True Randomness

From the thrill of checking your lottery numbers, to the volatility of financial markets, to the fool’s errand of weather prediction—life is more governed by chance than we’d like to admit. We share strange tales of randomness culled from early computer science, 20th-century think tank experiments, physicists’ fever dreams, and inventive artistic endeavours.

With contributions from: Casey Reas, Paul Prudence, Scott Aaronson, Daniel Shiffman, Michelle Kasprzak, Mitchell Whitelaw, Daniel Rourke, Coralie Gourguechon, Scott Smith, Fanqiao Wang, and others.
