CAS Teachshare

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by shumphreys, Jun 7, 2011.

  1. The next CAS Teachshare will be on June 8th 8pm-9pm. This will be an online event, open to all, with thanks to our friends at Vital.

    Aaron Sloman will be presenting this on the (very) broad topic of

    What is Computing?

    What is computing? Is it, how to make computers do things that are useful, or fun, and serve the economy, etc.? Or is there more?

    "Aaron is a philosopher and researcher on artificial intelligence and cognitive science. He is the author of several papers on philosophy, epistemology and artificial intelligence. He held the Chair in Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science at the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham, and before that a chair with the same title at theUniversity of Sussex. He is now working with biologist Jackie Chappell on the evolution of intelligence and is Honorary Professor of Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science at Birmingham." [Wikipedia]

    Aaron will draw on hie wealth of expertise in the fields of Computing, AI, Philosophy (etc etc) to demonstrate through both argument and practice that computing as information processing is essential to all aspects of life and that understanding this growth in learning ability is an essential requirement for designing and providing good educational systems.
