Logical Times - Fall 2015

Newsletters

Over the last year, we have had several distinguished visitors in the Department to meet with students, visit classes, and give public talks. We have been especially interested in hosting guests who can demonstrate to our students the applicability of mathematics and computer science to a variety of disciplines.

Last fall, we co-sponsored with the Cinema Department a screening of Codebreaker, a film about the life of Alan Turing. The film’s executive producer, Patrick Sammon, was on hand to introduce the film and answer questions. Last Spring, we hosted Dr. Keith Miller, a well-known computer ethicist and co-author, with Deborah Johnson, of the book Computer Ethics. Dr. Miller visited a philosophy of science class, as well as computer science classes. His talks were very well-received and generated interesting conversations for days afterwards. This semester, we welcomed Dr. Mark LeBlanc from Wheaton College (MA), who talked to faculty and students about his work in “Lexomics,” the application of computing to the analysis of literature. His evening lecture, co-sponsored by the English department, was standing room only! In mid-October, we will host Dr. David Kung, a mathematician who will talk about relationships between mathematics and music.

Finally, we initiated an online puzzle contest for local high school students. Dr. Mei elaborates below.
