June: Computer History/Failure, and a panel of Important Problems

Posted: June 1, 2015 by marioeaquino in Uncategorized

On Thursday, June 4th, come to Lambda Lounge to hear Chris Gore tell the entire history of computers and failure. Or the failure of computers? Whichever.

Following that, we’ll have a panel discussion (with plenty of audience participation) about: “What are the important problems in our field?” (where ‘important problem’ is defined by Richard Hamming as one whose solution will have an impact, and for which you have a reasonable attack.) Panelists include Josh Weaver, Alan DeGuzman, Ryan Richt, and Heath Borders. Jessitron will moderate.

Food is sponsored by Adaptive Solutions Group. Not sure what it’ll be yet, but it might be especially delicious.

Doors open at 6, meeting at 6:30. Bring any beverage of your choice, and nonperishable food items if you would like to donate to Circle of Concern.
