Computational Thinking

The impact of computers on intellectual life goes beyond email, web surfing and word processing. Computational ideas are beginning to influence research thinking in many branches of both the sciences and the humanities. For instance, researchers are using computational metaphors for enriching theories as diverse as genomics and the mind-body problem. Computing can also enable us to ask questions that could not previously have been contemplated, due to the large amount of data-processing that any investigation would require, for instance the search for the Higgs Boson.

As a vehicle to investigate how computational thinking is changing different disciplines, and to compare notes across these disciplines, a group of University Edinburgh researchers, drawn from across the University, are collaborating on a series of seminars. These seminars are open to all. The programme is give below and you can sign up to the email list below to receive notices of future seminars.
