Computationology: the Good Weird Parts

12:30 - 1:30: Presentation
1:30: Questions/Networking


Sometimes exploring a simple question can give rise to an absurd amount of mathematical structure. This talk will show how one question, namely what problems can computers solve, results in a rich and surprising variety of structures well beyond P vs NP and the halting problem.


Gary Fredericks is a professional adultperson who works for people who want to have somebody write their computercodes, and sometimes does talks like this one. He doesn't have the slightest idea how a water pump works. Like, is there a little water wheel in there or something? What's going on?


Lunch will be provided by 8th Light (https://8thlight.com/).

We will be live streaming the event via Zoom (https://zoom.us/j/3541015445).
