The Limits of Computation

Book Cover

Throughout the years there have been numerous movies and books showing robots and computers taking over the world, irobot and 2001: a space odyssey as examples, but could this actually happen? Computers are fast, efficient and accurate but we have to remember that it takes a human to program and control them. If this topic fascinates you and you would like to learn more, please join us on Tuesday April 16th as Professor Stephen Watt from Western Science explores the limits of computation, what computers can ultimately do now and in the future.
