Relativistic computing

Tuesday 16 July 2013

Trophy Suite, Tally Ho! Sports & Conference Centre, Pershore Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B5 7RN


For our last event before the Summer break we have been fortunate to be able to reschedule David McMahon’s presentation on Relativistic Computing. In October of last year David gave us an insight into the strange world of Quantum Computing. At this event David will give us a glimpse of the even stranger world of Relativistic Computing.

David will first present a Relativity 101 and then go on to explain how some computer scientists have proposed making use of General Relativity and it’s bizarre effects to boost the computing speed of computers. No previous knowledge of relativity is expected or required - just a very open mind!
