The Top 100 Living Geniuses

A British firm did a survey amongst 4000 people in the UK, to populate a list of the Top 100 Living Geniuses.

Albert Hoffman and Tim Berners-Lee topped the list.

Oscar Niemeyer, the legendary Brazilian architect makes it within the top 10. The sole Indian on the list: Kirti Narayan Chaudhuri comes in at 58.

As the survey was specific to respondants of a certain country it is not all-encompassing. However it makes an interesting list.
