On Sunday, November 11, and Monday, November 12, the Hariri Institute, the BU Center for Philosophy and the History of Science, and the BU Department of Computer Science are hosting a interdisciplinary symposium celebrating the life and legacy of Alan Turing. Turing’s contributions to computer science, mathematics, logic, artificial intelligence, and philosophy laid much of the groundwork for the computational revolution.

The symposium brings together leading researchers and thinkers across this broad range, with 19 distinguished speakers, including several winners of the ACM’s Turing Award.

The symposium program begins at 10 AM on November 11 in room 906 of the Photonics Building, at 8 St. Mary’s St. in Boston. The event is free and open to the public. No registration is required.
