* Spherical geometry algorithms in D3.js - Jason Davies
Algorithms designed to work on a 2D plane don’t necessarily work on the surface of a sphere. I will describe some of the algorithms used by d3.geo for geographic computation.
Bio: Jason Davies is a freelance programmer. His work and interests involve combining visualisation with mathematics, data structures and algorithms. He is a co-author of D3.js, an open-source visualisation library.
* Quantum computing and Cryptography - Anish Mohammed
Description to be added.
Bio: Anish Mohammed has been an electronics enthusiast and software hacker since his early teens. He endured medical school, before spending almost a decade in research and development in security and cryptography. He has spent time researching cryptographic algorithms & protocols and, for a short while, did research on quantum authentication protocols among other things.
