Last Thursday, I kicked off the Alan Turing Year at Reykjavik University by delivering a talk for the general public entitled Alan Turing: The Father of Computer Science (organized jointly by ICE-TCS , the School of Computer Science at Reykjavik University and the Icelandic Mathematical Society). In case anyone is interested, the audio of the talk, with the accompanying slides, is here in .avi format.
We plan to record all the talks in the series and to make them available on line here.
It is not easy to give a talk for a general audience. In enjoyed the experience, but I was mightily relieved when the talk was over :-)
The Alan Turing Year at Reykjavik University is part of the Alan Turing Year, a centenary celebration of the life and work of Alan Turing.
