2016 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: Is the Universe a Simulation?
I've attended about a half dozen of these Isaac Asimov debates, but I couldn't make it this year. I didn't feel the panel did enough justice to the topic as they could have; they seemed to veer off on tangents too often. James Gates, who a number of years ago made some noise by stating he is considering whether we are living in a Matrix has really backed off of that position. I think he probably received a lot of negative feedback for what he said last time and is making an effort to prevent that from happening again.
