Dr. Matthew C. Levy is a computational scientist working at the intersection of physics and artificial intelligence.  He is widely-recognized for creating theories of how the world’s most powerful lasers interact with dense matter, with applications to clean energy production through laser fusion and fundamental high-field physics.  Increasingly he is focused on AI and holds two patents pending covering physics-inspired approaches. Dr. Levy was the first American physicist Newton Fellow in the Royal Society of the United Kingdom.  Since 2015 he has been Visiting Scholar at Stanford University. He is Junior Research Fellow of Wolfson College in the University of Oxford and Founder of Noble Artificial Intelligence.
