My talk about Alan Turing’s 1936 paper on computable numbers. Recorded in May of 2016 at Skullspace for Papers We Love Winnipeg.

The slides for the talk are also available.

I’ll be speaking at Papers We Love again this year on May 24th. This year’s paper will be Christoph Adami’s What is Information?

This presentation will carefully introduce the concepts of entropy and information, explaining them intuitively while still rigorously defined. The presented paper argues that a proper understanding of information in terms of prediction is key to a number of disciplines beyond engineering, such as physics and biology.
