50 Years of Computing and Beyond

Wednesday 17 October - 2:30pm
Ken Turner will give a talk on '50 Years of Computing and Beyond' in Cottrell Room 2X6.

This talk will cover my experiences of computing during some 50 years. A lot

  has changed in this period. It is therefore hard to know how things used to

  be, or how we got to where we are today. The talk will consist of personal

  recollections and anecdotes, with the aim of filling in a bit of the history.

  The content will be light-hearted and pictorial rather than heavyweight and

  research-oriented. Some thoughts will be offered as to how computing might

  evolve over the next 50 years.
