Von Neumann's Universe: Coding (and Engineering) at the IAS, 1945-1956
Date: Friday, July 11
Time: 8:45am - 9:30am
Location: Oregon Ballroom
For any fans of Larry Niven, the Dyson Sphere (named after George Dyson's dad Freeman Dyson) and Von Neumann machines are referenced in many of Nivens' books. Not that I expect that'll be a feature of the keynote, but an interesting aside possibly.
