Computation is ubiquitous: modern life would be inconceivable without it.
Written as a series of conversations with influential computer scientists, mathematicians and physicists, this book provides access to the inner thinking of those who have made essential contributions to the development of computing and its applications. You will learn about the interviewees’ education, career path, influences, methods of work, how they cope with failure and success, how they relax, how they see the future, and much more.
The conversations are presented in jargon-free language suitable for a general audience, but with enough technical detail for more specialized readers. The aim of the book is not only to inform and entertain, but also to motivate and stimulate.
