TXMOST Talks: Sir Dermot Turing

Tues. March 21st: 6:30pm:  Sir Dermot Turing will speak on his 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’?  Sir Dermot would build upon ideas he has presented previously – though not to a public audience in the US before – looking at the various machines which Alan developed through his life, where these stand in the evolution of computing machinery, and what the challenges were in the 1930s and 1940s.
