Simen Kvaal on NRK Ekko about Landauer's principle

Does the brain get warmer when you forget something?

Simen Kvaal attends the radioprogram "Ekko" at NRK P2, wednesday at. 10:03, P2.

The theme this time is the Landauer principle: If you delete a piece of information, it becomes inevitably generated T * k * log 2 with heat in the environment.

So the brain is warmer when you forget something!

They will also talk about the unique concept of "entropy" in thermodynamics, and Øystein Elgarøy from the Dept. of Theoretical Astrophysics is going to talk about thermodynamics 2. law and cosmology.
