Tech Talk with on "Will SkyNet win?" with Ensoft

Lecture Theatre A - 7:00pm Wednesday (4th week)

Simon Chatterjee will be joining us from Ensoft:

Will Skynet win? Five ways computers write software better than you.

The Internet is arguably the most complex machine invented so far on the planet, and it's made of software. This is now pushing the limits of how human beings can create and test code, but recent advances mean the machines are remarkably starting to rise up and take on the challenge. I'll talk about what's happening, why it's awesome, and what it means for your future career.

Learn To Code 3

Department of Computer Science - 7:30pm Thursday (4th week)

In Session 3, we will be covering Compound Data Structures with the main group, and Decision Making and Loops with the secondary group.

The material from previous sessions can be found at https://ox.compsoc.net/learntocode/.

Doors will open at 7pm, for a 7:30pm start. The session will last 2 hours.
