For better or worse, computers are here to stay. The Computing Universe is a “comprehensive, authoritative, and nonpartisan account” (George Dyson) of the moving parts that make up our technological world. Tony Hey, senior data science fellow with the University of Washington’s eScience Institute (and former Microsoft VP), expertly details the history of technology and computers, from their early days to the present era of networked social media and artificial intelligence. He’ll discuss this trajectory, why it’s important to engage “nerdy teenagers” in this field, and outline a potential future for the next generation–one where children become adept at coding, but also engage in the continually-evolving realm of computer science.
Presented by: Town Hall, Ada’s Technical Books, and Ada’s Developers Academy, as part of The Seattle Science Lectures.
