I finally watched the movie Arrival (2016) with some students today. The original story by Ted Chiang is cleverer and more thought-provoking. Nevertheless, it was fun to see the scientists in the movie working with Mathematica and Matlab. In his blog, Stephen Wolfram wrote about his involvement with this movie.
Coincidentally, there was an neuroscience news today about how language might shape our perception of time. Thanks to JP for these links.
