Bard Translation and Translatability Initiative Presents
Translation In/With Computing - Let Me Count The Ways
Tuesday, November 1, 2022
Reem-Kayden Center Laszlo Z. Bito '60 Auditorium
5:30 pm – 6:30 pm EDT/GMT-4
Valerie Barr, Margaret Hamilton Distinguished Professor of Computer Science
Translation is omnipresent within computer science given that data in human consumable forms (pictures, music, text) is stored in completely different internal representations. Furthermore, the software that allows us to see, hear, and manipulate that data has itself been translated so that the hardware can execute it. Yet the notion of and need for "translation" only increases when we also consider two additional questions: what is it that those using computation should know about computing in order to be effective, and what should all students understand about computing (the good, the bad, the ugly history) in order to actively critique and challenge the current pace and impact of technological change?
