For me, this talk was particularly significant, because it juxtaposed:-
- Turing with Newton;
- Logic / Computer Science with Numerical Analysis / Scientific Computing;
- computable numbers with the intrinsic size of an input word.
Professor Blum also presented
- Computing as a Lens on the Sciences.
During her life Carnegie Mellon University, she has created fabulous opportunities for women to enter STEM, Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. And she is now also involved in the start-up scene.
Her thinking made me realise that my software methods are moving
- from computing numbers to visualising them.
And instead of looking at input words and their sizes, I’m displaying numbers with pixel accuracy.
I wrote Visualisation Pixels – the Link between Digital Bits and Physical Atoms some time ago.
But in future I will write ‘digital creations’ for ‘patrons’ who are willing to sponsor our Smart Knowledge Engine via my new Patreon page. In my view, this is better than crowdfunding, as the creators are DIGITAL.
