Top 10 Most Intelligent People In The World

History cannot be made without geniuses. Newton, Thomas Edison, Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo Galilei, and others are still alive today as a result of their methods, ideas, and formulas.

People with mind-boggling IQ levels, highly intelligent and talented, such as fabulously outstanding academics, former child prodigies, and others, have attained acclaim and excelled at a young age.

Here are the top 10 most intelligent people in the world.

Aryabhata

Aryabhata

Aryabhata

Aryabhata was an Indian astronomer and mathematician who lived during the classical period of Indian mathematics and astronomy. He flourished during the Gupta Era, producing works such as the Āryabhaṭīya, which states that he was 23 years old in 3600 Kali Yuga, 499 CE, and the Arya-Siddhanta.

Around 1300 years before Lambert proved it, Aryabhata estimated the value of pi () to the fourth decimal digit and was likely aware that pi is an irrational number.

The apparent westward motion of stars, he observed, is caused by the spherical Earth’s rotation about its own axis. Aryabhata also accurately deduced that the Moon’s and other planets’ illumination is due to reflected sunlight. He is also considered a notable early physicist due to his explicit discussion of the theory of relativity of motion.

Isaac Newton

Isaac Newton

Isaac Newton

Sir Isaac Newton PRS was an English mathematician, physicist, astronomer, alchemist, theologian, and author who is widely regarded as one of history’s greatest mathematicians and physicists, as well as one of the world’s most important scientists.

Newton developed the laws of motion and universal gravity, which were the prevailing scientific position until the theory of relativity overtook them. He demonstrated that the same concepts could be used to explain the motion of objects on Earth and heavenly bodies.

The geodetic observations of Maupertuis, La Condamine, and others later corroborated Newton’s deduction that the Earth is an oblate spheroid, persuading most European scientists of Newtonian mechanics’ superiority over older systems.

Galileo Galilei

Galileo Galilei

Galileo Galilei

Galileo di Vincenzo Bonaiuti de’ Galilei, also known as Galileo, was an Italian astronomer, physicist, and engineer who was born in the city of Pisa, which was then part of the Duchy of Florence. Galileo is credited with founding observational astronomy, modern physics, the scientific method, and modern science.

Galileo engaged on practical science and technology, explaining the attributes of pendulums and “hydrostatic balances,” as well as studying speed and velocity, gravity and free fall, the principle of relativity, inertia, and projectile motion.

He devised the thermoscope and several military compasses, and he used the telescope to observe celestial objects scientifically.

Telescopic confirmation of Venus’ phases, observation of Jupiter’s four greatest satellites, the study of Saturn’s rings, and analysis of lunar craters and sunspots are among his contributions to observational astronomy.

Thomas Alva Edison

Thomas Alva Edison

Thomas Alva Edison

Thomas Alva Edison was an inventor and businessman from the United States. In disciplines including electric power generation, mass communication, sound recording, and motion pictures, he invented numerous gadgets. The phonograph, motion the picture camera, and early versions of the electric light bulb are among the inventions that have had a significant impact on the modern industrialized world.

Working with a large number of researchers and staff, he was one of the first inventors to apply the ideas of organized science and cooperation to the process of innovation. He was the first to establish an industrial research laboratory.

Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was an Italian polymath who worked as a painter, draughtsman, engineer, scientist, theorist, sculptor, and architect during the High Renaissance.

While he rose to prominence as a painter, he was also recognized for his notebooks, which contained sketches and notes on a wide range of disciplines, including anatomy, astronomy, botany, cartography, painting, and paleontology.

Leonardo’s creativity embodied the Renaissance humanist ideal, and his combined works represent a legacy to future generations of artists rivaled only by Michelangelo’s.

He invented flying aircraft, a form of armored war vehicle, concentrated solar power, the adding machine, and the double hull, and is revered for his technological genius.

Because current scientific techniques to metallurgy and engineering were just in their infancy during the Renaissance, few of his plans were built or even possible during his lifetime.

Some of his lesser-known inventions, such as an automated bobbin winder and the machine for evaluating the tensile strength of wire, made their way into the manufacturing sector unnoticed.

He made significant contributions to anatomy, civil engineering, hydrodynamics, geology, optics, and tribology, but he never published his findings, and they had little to no impact on later science.

Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking

Stephen William Hawking CH CBE FRS FRSA was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author who served as director of research at the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Theoretical Cosmology until he died. He was the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge from 1979 to 2009.

Hawking’s scientific contributions included cooperation with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems in the context of general relativity, as well as the theoretical prediction that black holes radiate radiation, which is commonly referred to as Hawking radiation.

Hawking radiation was contentious at first. The discovery was widely regarded as a major advance in theoretical physics by the late 1970s, following the release of additional studies. Hawking was the first to propose a cosmological theory based on a combination of general relativity and quantum physics. He was a staunch advocate of quantum physics’ many-worlds interpretation.

Terence Tao

Terence Tao

Terence Tao

Terence “Terry” Chi-Shen Tao FAA FRS is a mathematician of Australian and American descent. He is a James and Carol Collins chaired professor of mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

Harmonic analysis, partial differential equations, algebraic combinatorics, arithmetic combinatorics, geometric combinatorics, probability theory, compressed sensing, and analytic number theory are among the themes of his research.

He was awarded the Fields Medal in 2006 and the Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics in 2014. He was also named a MacArthur Fellow in 2006. Tao has written approximately 300 research publications as an author or co-author. He is widely recognized as one of the most brilliant mathematicians alive today.

Christopher Langan

Christopher Langan

Christopher Langan

Christopher Michael Langan is an autodidact from the United States who has been claimed to have a high IQ. Langan’s IQ was assessed to be between 195 and 210 on ABC’s 20/20, and he was dubbed “the smartest guy in America” or “the world” by several media in 1999.

Langan has proposed the “Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe,” which, according to him, “explains the connection between mind and reality, thus the existence of cognition and universe in the same phrase.”

He describes his idea as “a true ‘Theory of Everything,’ a cross between John Archibald Wheeler’s ‘Participatory Universe’ and Stephen Hawking’s ‘Imaginary Time’ theory of cosmology,” and claims that he can “establish the presence of God, the soul, and an afterlife using mathematics” with CTMU.
