The Clayton School of IT at Monash University invites you to its Alan Turing Centenary Celebration on Friday 14 September 2012 at the Clayton campus.
Alan Turing (1912-1954) was a remarkably versatile and
original mathematician and computer scientist, indeed he helped create the field of computer science. He made major contributions in several areas including the theory of computability, breaking the Enigma code during World War 2, design of early computers, and artificial intelligence. He died tragically at age 41. This year is the centenary of his birth and his achievements are being celebrated worldwide.
Our local celebration consists of a series of short talks, aimed at a general audience, followed by lunch.
Graham Farr: Alan Turing
David Albrecht: Turing machines
Ron Steinfeld: Turing and Cryptography
Arun Konagurthu: Turing and Morphogenesis
Kevin Korb: The Turing Test
David Dowe: A universal intelligence test
The event is free but registration is essential and is due by Friday 7 September.
