Then we can dream about outstanding research, and Simula has now been through five international assessments – all with top marks – so there must be something in it. To do that we must recruit people who can maintain this level and who possess something extraordinary. The extraordinary lies in this drive. When we find such people they always change the way we operate. ” 77 What would you say lies at the heart of your own research? What do you want to contribute to the world? “My research’s major contribution has been to make it easier to create a laboratory in the computer, where we can experiment with the world.
Otherwise we end up opinionating about everything under the sun. Just look at the blogosphere. People opinionate forcefully on everything all the time. We operate at the other extreme. We don’t have much in the way of opinions. Someone gives us A, and then we do the rather tedious job of getting to B. I am a firm believer that we must educate people who can guarantee the quality of the journey from A to B. The world is obviously not so simple that it can always be done, but in very many engineering projects it is possible.
Like many others I realised that it would revolutionise mathematics and physics, but I also rewe are standing on each other’s toes’ Richard Hamming (1915–1998), American alised immediately that it would revolutionise how these subjects were taught. Unfortunately it would take 30 years before that latter realisation became an academic mathematician truth. ” 77 The mathematician Richard Hamming has said that it was widely believed in the 1930s that mathematicians didn’t need calculators. They were so clever themselves.
