Real Scientists Don't Wear Ties looks at science and technology, and their links to general and popular culture and everyday life, in an easy-to-understand style aimed at non-scientists. In fifty pieces selected from his writings in Discover, Nature, MIT Technology Review and elsewhere, the author covers today's biggest science-tech topics: quantum physics, gravitational waves, genetic engineering, space exploration, artificial intelligence, and more. He shows how science shows up in medical practice, cooking, soccer, and art, and he discusses science and science fiction in the media. On the lighter side, he reports on his efforts to teach a computer to understand poetry, explains why scientists resist dressing up, and shows that unlike many people, scientists actually enjoy math.
