TXMOST Talk with Sir Dermot Turing
March 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm - $10 – $25
The Texas Museum of Science and Technology is continuing their new monthly TXMOST Talks Noteworthy Names Series with Sir Dermot Turing on Tuesday, March 21 from 6:30 – 8 pm. Sir Turing will speak on the topic of his famous uncle Alan Turing’s place in the pantheon of computing – to what extent is it right to view him as the ‘father of the computer’? For the first time in the US, he will build upon ideas he has presented previously, looking at the various machines which Alan developed throughout his life, where they stand in the evolution of computing machinery, and what the challenges were in the 1930s and 1940s. He will also discuss The Imitation Game and Alan Turing’s personal life, death, and recent pardon. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
