The more we learn about the universe, the more questions seem to arise. Here are our picks for the biggest open questions remaining in the field of physics.
AI-complete
In the field of artificial intelligence, the most difficult problems are informally known as AI-complete or AI-hard, implying that the difficulty of these computational problems is equivalent to that ...
List of unsolved problems in biology
This article lists currently unsolved problems in biology.
Unsolved problems in chemistry
Unsolved problems in chemistry tend to be questions of the kind "Can we make X chemical compound?", "Can we analyse it?", "Can we purify it?" and are commonly solved rather quickly, but may just as we...
Unsolved problems in computer science
This article is a list of unsolved problems in computer science. A problem in computer science is considered unsolved when an expert in the field (i.e, a computer scientist) considers it unsolved or w...
Unsolved problems in economics
This is a list of some of the major unsolved problems, puzzles, or questions in neoclassical economics. Some of these are theoretical in origin and some of them concern the inability of orthodox econo...
Unsolved problems in linguistics
This article discusses currently unsolved problems in linguistics.Some of the issues below are commonly recognized as unsolved problems; i.e., it is generally agreed that no solution is known. Others...
Unsolved problems in mathematics
This article reiterates the Millennium Prize list of unsolved problems in mathematics as of October 2014, and lists further unsolved problems in algebra, additive and algebraic number theories, analys...
Unsolved problems in neuroscience
There are yet unsolved problems in neuroscience, although some of these problems have evidence supporting a hypothesized solution, and the field is rapidly evolving. These problems include:
Unsolved problems in philosophy
This is a list of some of the major unsolved problems in philosophy. Clearly, unsolved philosophical problems exist in the lay sense (e.g. "What is the meaning of life?", "Where did we come from?", "W...
Unsolved problems in physics
Some of the major unsolved problems in physics are theoretical, meaning that existing theories seem incapable of explaining a certain observed phenomenon or experimental result. The others are experim...

Unsolved problems in statistics
There are many longstanding unsolved problems in mathematics for which a solution has still not yet been found. The unsolved problems in statistics are generally of a different flavor; according to Jo...
Legendre's constant
Legendre's constant is a mathematical constant occurring in a formula conjectured by Adrien-Marie Legendre to capture the asymptotic behavior of the prime-counting function . Its value is now known to...
Artificial intelligence
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the intelligence exhibited by machines or software. It is an academic field of study which studies the goal of creating intelligence. Major AI researchers and textbooks...

NP = co-NP problem
In computational complexity theory, co-NP is a complexity class. A decision problem is a member of co-NP if and only if its complement is in the complexity class NP. In simple terms, co-NP is the c...

Baryon asymmetry
The baryon asymmetry problem in physics refers to the fact that there is an imbalance in baryonic matter and antibaryonic matter in the observable universe. Neither the standard model of particle phys...
Hierarchy problem
In theoretical physics, the hierarchy problem is the large discrepancy between aspects of the weak force and gravity. There is no scientific consensus on, for example, why the weak force is 10 times s...
