    Computing a theory of everything | Stephen Wolfram

    So I want to talk today about an idea. It’s a big idea. Actually, I think it’ll eventually be seen as probably the single biggest idea that’s emerged in the past century. It’s the idea of computation. Now, of course, that idea has brought us all of the computer technology we have today and so on. But there’s actually a lot more to computation than that. It’s really a very deep, very powerful, very fundamental idea, whose effects we’ve only just begun to see. Well, I myself have spent the past 30 years of my life working on three large projects that really try to take the idea of computation…

    Parallel Computing is My Contribution to Computer Science | Philip Emeagwali | Famous Inventors

    TIME magazine called him “the unsung hero behind the Internet.” CNN called him “A Father of the Internet.” President Bill Clinton called him “one of the great minds of the Information Age.” He has been voted history’s greatest scientist of African descent. He is Philip Emeagwali. He is coming to Trinidad and Tobago to launch the 2008 Kwame Ture lecture series on Sunday June 8 at the JFK [John F. Kennedy] auditorium UWI [The University of the West Indies] Saint Augustine 5 p.m. The Emancipation Support Committee invites you to come and hear this inspirational mind address the theme: “Crossing New Frontiers to Conquer Today’s Challenges.” This lecture is one…

    Creative Kentuckians Discover What’s Possible at UK

    The College of Fine Arts hosted the Governor’s School for the Arts for the first time in the history of that program and welcomed 256 students from across the Commonwealth. GSA is Kentucky’s flagship initiative for Kentucky’s brightest young artists. The summer program is a three-week, tuition- free residential summer program that focuses on nine different art forms. I really consider it almost a sacred responsibility to keep this program going for future generations and then to take GSA to my alma mater, the University of Kentucky, is an amazing full circle experience. UK’s commitment to the arts is at such a high level that it makes it the perfect…

    Lec-4 Frequency Domain Representation of Discrete Signals

    Today, we shall be discussing about frequency domain representation of discrete signals. Before we go to the frequency domain representation, we just briefly discuss about how to represent a continuous domain, the dynamic system in a difference equation mode, okay then we will take up frequency domain representation. Suppose, you have a differential equation in the continuous domain; 2 into d square x by d t squared plus 3 into d x by d t plus 2 into x, is some forcing function f t. Now, we have approximated d x by d t as, some first order approximation of this kind x n minus x n minus 1 by…

    Lecture 0: Introduction – Computing 1 – Richard Buckland UNSW

    I’ve got a series of polls to sort of get you in the frame of mind of thinking like a uni student or thinking like a computer scientist , really the first one comes from something my daughter said this morning as she was looking at the biscuits, and we had lots of those biscuits that were pink with little hundreds and thousands on them and she was marvelling at how many there were and she said: i like them so much I would like – she’s just learning big numbers – i would like twenty thousand of them i said “oh, that’s quite a lot”, she said yes “No,…
