Max Tegmark's Biography

Max Tegmark is a cosmologist, physicist and machine learning researcher known for his work on the mathematical universe hypothesis and the development of multiverse theory. Max has produced some pioneering work on how the universe evolves and is a highly sought-after speaker on science, technology and the future.

Since 2004, Max has been a Physics professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), one of the world’s leading academic institutions. Max’s work focuses on the mathematical universe hypothesis, which postulates that our physical reality is just one member of an infinite array of universes, each with laws of physics. His research has focused on cosmology, where he often partners with researchers to combine theoretical work with new data to restrict cosmological models and their free variables. He also has intelligence research, aiming to understand biological and artificial intelligence through physics-based methodologies. His other research interests include quantum computing and the nature of consciousness.

In addition, Max is also President of the Future of Life Institute and serves as the Foundational Questions Institute’s Scientific Director.

Max is a science author with published works that have inspired global audiences. His 2014 book Our Mathematical Universe explores the nature of rational reality and explains the strangeness of our universe using mathematics and cosmology. His second book, Life 3.0 (2017), delves into AI’s societal implications and ramifications and explores alternative fates for humanity and technology.

Max is known for his pioneering work and popular writings on science, technology, the future and how the universe evolves. His scientific research has been featured in Newsweek, Time, Scientific American, Wall Street Journal and New York Times.

Along with supporting the effective altruism movement, Max holds a fellowship to the American Physical Society and a gold medal from the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Science.

As a keynote speaker, Max has given many addresses and presentations on physics, artificial intelligence and the future of humanity. He is actively involved in efforts to encourage public understanding of science and promote the responsible development of artificial intelligence.
