Damian Conway (http://blogs.perl.org/users/damian_conway/2014/03/what-goes-around-comes-around.html) of Perl fame, is kind enough to pay us a visit yet again, this time with a talk about Life, the Universe, and Everything. Damian is an enticing speaker no matter the topic and this time he will guide us through a journey in time and space.
Take a mind-altering journey to the outer limits of programming as Damian explores:
• The unlikely convenience of quantum finite state automata
• The demonic power of Maxwell's information engine
• The computational expressiveness of (un)natural languages
...blending them all into a simple self-describing massively parallel auto-visualizing superpositional proof-by-simulation system that spans six centuries of the computational arts.
Last time he was in Oslo, Damain gave the talk "Temporally Quaquaversal Virtual Nanomachine Programming In Multiple Topologically Connected Quantum-Relativistic Parallel Timespaces...Made Easy!". Here's a taste of the talk to give you an idea of what to expect:
Food & drink:
Doors open at 17:00-ish for those who want to come early to get good seating and some food and drink before the event.
