Annual IMlay Lecture
Lenore’s lecture, “Alan Turing and the Other Theory of Computation,” explores one of Turing’s lesser known papers from 1948. She notes that it is a seminal paper from Turing, and “sets the stage for a natural theory of complexity for computational mathematics, the ‘other theory of computation.’”
ARC & IISP Distinguished Lecture
Manuel’s talk, “Human Computation with an Application to Passwords”, presents a simple model of human computation based on well-known features of long and short term human memory. The intention of the model is to bring CS ideas and understanding to bear on the kinds of computations that humans can (and cannot) consciously perform in their heads.
Manuel and Lenore’s talks will cap off a series of notable lectures from premier computer scientists at Georgia Tech in recent weeks. http://www.scs.gatech.edu
