By Professor Alan Eardley

Date: Thursday 14 April 2016

Time: 5.30 for 6.00pm

Location: Octagon Building, Stafford

From the beginning, computing education in Stafford has been at the leading edge.  From Staffordshire College of Technology to Staffordshire University, from the English Electric Deuce (built at Kidsgrove in 1955) to the latest vision and artificial intelligence technology being developed in the School of Computing, our staff, students and graduates have contributed much to the development of computing as an industry and as an academic subject.  In the 50th year of Computing at Stafford, Professor Alan Eardley’s Inaugural Lecture will recount this fascinating story through documents, artefacts and the words of “those who were there”

Light refreshments will be served after the lecture.
