Speaker: Professor Leslie Smith
Venue: Lecture Theatre B4, Cottrell Building, University of Stirling
Digital computer technology has changed enormously in the three quarters of a century since these machines were first developed. From electromechanical devices developed in Germany, the UK and USA, to electronic devices, initially using valves and later transistors, reducing the size and power consumption have often been just as important as increasing the speed and memory. The talk will look at the technologies that have been used and at how these have impacted on the size, cost, speed and power of digital computers.
This lecture is part of the A Random Walk through Mathematics and Computing Science series of public lectures organised by Computing Science and Mathematics, University of Stirling.
