On Monday February 4th, I gave the first of a series of three free public lectures on computng and mathematics at Gresham College, Barnards Inn Hall, Holborn, Central London. Any reader of this blog is welcome to attend these lectures.
The first lecture was entitled "Arithmetic by Human and Arithmetic by Computer". Video and audio recordings are available at the Gresham College website. This lecture featured some cool tricks for doing arithmetic, a performing monkey and brilliant Scottish inventions.
The second lecture was "How Computers get it Wrong: 2+2=5". Video and audio recordings are now available at the Gresham College website. This lecture discussed different kinds of computer error.
The third lecture will be given at Gresham College (Barnards Inn Hall, Holborn, central London) on Monday 15th April.
Please post any comments or questions about the lectures as comments on this blog post.
