George Dyson on Turing's Cathedral

August 17, 2012

In "Turing's Cathedral," George Dyson tells the "creation story" of the computer age -- the story of the birth of the first computers and the first address matrix.  Dyson grew up playing in the backyard of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton -- where his parents, and a team of brilliant engineers and mathematicians, developed the prototype of the computers we still use today.
