A Brief History of Computer Science.

Held in MC2066, on 2003-06-10, at 4:30 PM.


War, insanity, espionage, beauty, domination, sacrifice, and tragic death... not what one might associate with the history of computer science. In this talk I will focus on the origin of our discipline in the fields of engineering, mathematics, and science, and on the complicated personalities that shaped its evolution. No advanced technical knowledge is required.
