Professor Kevin Warwick

Professor Kevin Warwick of Reading University’s Cybernetics Department will be giving a guest lecture here on Tuesday, April 20th at 6:00pm in R0.21 (Ramphal Lecture Theatre). Professor Warwick claims to be the world’s first cyborg, and had an electronic chip implanted in his arm. If you’re going to go to one lecture next term, make it this one!

This lecture is open to everyone, not just Compsoc members. All are welcome!

Update:

The date has passed, and the lecture happened. Hopefully everyone found it enjoyable and informative. Some people may have just discovered a new future in cybernetics… as guinea pigs, at least. Watch this space for future Guest Lectures and events!

Note: if you have tried to connect to the IRC server but could not, try using port 6668 instead of 6667.

Dr Steve Matthews Lecture

This week we have scheduled a talk by Dr. Steve Matthews. The talk will be an hour’s introduction to “Philosophy for Programmers”, Dr. Steve Matthew’s research topic. This will be on Tueday of Week 10 at 5pm, in the L4 lecture theatre (beside L3).

This is an event that should not be missed!

Update:

Lecture was had, and it was so popular that we outnumbered the people in the lecture next door! Thanks to everyone who turned up for making it a success, and thanks especially to Dr Steve Matthews for giving the lecture.

Anyone who wishes to see the presentation slides can find them here.
