Hardware for computing for non-ICT specialists

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 43:21
Speaker: : Steve Furber

This lecture provides a history of data management, recent developments data management, and a brief description of scientific data management.

Difficulty level: Advanced
Duration: 35:10
Speaker: : Thomas Heinis

Computer arithmetic is necessarily performed using approximations to the real numbers they are intended to represent, and consequently it is possible for the discrepancies between the actual solution and the approximate solutions to diverge, i.e. to become increasingly different. This lecture focuses on how this happens and techniques for reducing the effects of these phenomena and discuss systems which are chaotic.

This lecture will addresses what it means for a problem to have a computable solution, methods for combining computability results to analyse more complicated problems, and finally look in detail at one particular problem which has no computable solution: the halting problem.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 28:28
Speaker: : David Lester

This lecture focuses on computational complexity which lies at the heart of computer science thinking. In short, it is a way to quickly gauge an approximation to the computational resource required to perform a task. Methods to analyse a computer program and to perform the approximation are presented. Speaker: David Lester.
