Join us for a quick look (45 - 50 minutes) into the fascinating world of Cellular Automata! Cellular Automata are a type of simulation that has been a part of Computer Science history since the 1940's!
This presentation is accessible to all skill levels, as a majority of the presentation is code free.
The following questions will be covered:
- What exactly are Cellular Automata?
- How do Cellular Automata work?
- What types of Cellular Automata are there?
- How have Cellular Automata changed throughout history?
Caleb Martinez is a native Charlottean and Software Engineer working at LeanTaas, a company that improves healthcare through machine learning and data science. His interest in Cellular Automata began when he saw that a friend of his was drawing reactive diffusion pieces by hand, and he learned that that model was closely related to computer science and Cellular Automata.
