On Tuesday 16 June Prof Peter McOwan gave a presentation about computer science, magic, maths and AI before a screening of the film The Prestige at The Barbican in partnership with the London Mathematical Laboratory. We brought along some copies of The Magic of Computer Science 3 (the third book in our magic series) for the younger members of the audience but you can download a copy of Magic Book 3 as a PDF along with earlier editions in the Magic Book series.
Peter mentioned a few other things in his talk too –
- cs4fn or Computer Science for Fun is at http://www.cs4fn.org/
- Peter’s magic site “Illusioneering” is here http://www.illusioneering.org/
- and ‘Our Space’ which features Richard Garriott doing tricks at the International Space Station is here http://www.our-space.org/materials/fun/gravity-trick
Science on Screen is part of a series the Barbican is running which considers the intersection between science and film.
