Posted: 2nd July 2012
Samson Abramsky, who co-edited the Royal Society's Philosophical Transactions A special issue on Turing, is interviewed in the accompanying video podcast.
The articles in this issue span a remarkable range of topics that testify to the richness of Alan Turing’s intellectual legacy in the modern conception of computation. There are deep connections with fundamental issues in physics, mathematics, artificial intelligence, philosophy and beyond.
In the podcast Samson disuses some of the topics featured in the issue and the lasting influence that Turing's work is still having today. The podcast can be seen on the Philosophical Transactions A website at http://rsta.royalsocietypublishing.org/site/2012/1971.xhtml
The Royal Society’s Philosophical Transactions A is a journal devoted to mathematical, physical and engineering sciences. This area will define a research frontier that is advancing rapidly, often bridging traditional disciplines, and is described as “essential reading for mathematicians, physicists, engineers and other physical scientists.”
