Turing Centennial Celebration – Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 proceedings of Turing Centennial Celebration. See also Day 1 and Day 2.

  • David Harel’s talk titled “Standing on the Shoulders of a Giant”

  • An entertaining musical video about Turing test

  • Avi Wigderson’s tak titled “The Hardness of Proving Computational Hardness”. It is always exciting to watch Avi’s talks.

  • Avi says “Easiness and Hardness are two sides of the same Mobius strip”.

  • Shafi Goldwasser’s talk titled “Pseudo Deterministic Algorithms”

  • Bob Tarjan’s talk titled “Search Tree Mysteries”.

  • Dick Lipton’s talk titled “What Would Turing Be Doing Today?”. As usual Dick’s talk is very entertaining. So I took more pictures.

  • “Making Projectors work” is a grand challenge :)

  • Birds vs Frogs
  • End of Dick’s talk

  • Christos Papadimitriou’s talk titled “The Origin of Computable Numbers”. Amazing talk comparing Turing and Darwin.

 

The three day Turing Centennial celebration comes to an end :(
