That most powerful human organ - the brain, is mysterious even today, when medicine and science have advanced so much. Some people are simply smarter than others. Why? It's hard to explain, because how the brain works is still not entirely clear, and this is the smartest person in the world at the moment in terms of IQ.
Terrain Tao (IQ = 230)
Mathematician Terence Tao learned to read and count by the age of two, allegedly watching the children's show "Sesame Street". Born in 1975 in Australia, he quickly showed extraordinary mathematical talent. In other school subjects, he parried his peers, but attended a special math program and skipped several grades. Already at the age of fourteen he became a full-time student. Colleagues call him a rock star, and sometimes a Mozart mathematician.
After completing his master's studies, he moved to the United States, where he received his doctorate from Princeton at the age of twenty-one, and at the age of twenty-four he became a full professor at the University of California, the youngest in the history of this institution. He achieved significant results in at least five different mathematical fields. For him, the traditional boundaries between different mathematical fields have disappeared, older mathematicians claim.
He was awarded the Fields Medal in 2006, which is equal to the Nobel Prize in the world of mathematics, for "contributions to partial differential equations, combinatorics, harmonic analysis and additive number theory". It is the youngest winner in the last thirty years.
To date, Tao has collaborated with about seventy mathematicians, published seventeen books and close to three hundred papers. For years, he has been running a mathematics blog where he publishes news about his work, the success of colleagues, but also expands mathematical communication.
