People are natural problem solvers. We love puzzles, games, and apparently some people even enjoy their jobs! But what are we doing when we solve a problem? Can all problems be solved by following simple methods?
In the search for answers to these questions, mathematicians created the field of computer science – the study of processes themselves. This is a truly unique science; it combines elements of maths, engineering, psychology, and more.
In this talk we will look at the origins of the field, its modern applications, and how computers can beat humans at their own games by writing an AI that plays perfect Tic-Tac-Toe.
This webinar will be presented by Dr. Andrew Chinery, Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bath.
