SUMMARY
Einstein said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge." Turing said, "Sometimes it is the people no one can imagine anything of who do the things no one can imagine." This presentation describes the speaker's journey to use the Einstein and Turing observations as inspirations to solve a fifty-year-old puzzle in theoretical physics.

SPEAKER
Sylvester James “Jim” Gates, Jr., is an American theoretical physicist. He received his Ph.D. degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is well known for work in supersymmetry, supergravity and string theory, as well as for his advocacy for science and science education in the United States and abroad.

He has been elected in numerous Societies and Academies and is a past president of National Society of Black Physicists and the current president of the American Physical Society.
