I watched these videos a long while back when thinking about free will and determinism. I remember these interviews were worthwhile. The whole website is full of valuable content from distinguished academics.
Prediction is the fruitful product of good science, but how far can prediction go? Physics is the most mathematical and rigorous of the sciences and so prediction is most successful in physics. But are there limits to predictability in physics? What about quantum indeterminacy? Are there ultimate barriers to prediction in physics?
