Speaker information

Dr Sue Black, Senior Research Associate, UCL Department of Computer Science

Please accept our apologies for the short notice, this Lunch Hour Lecture has had to be rescheduled due to unforseen circumstances. The lecture will now take place on Tuesday 8 January.

Bletchley Park is the historic site of secret British codebreaking activities during World War II and the work carried out there by Alan Turing and others led to the birth of the modern computer. How did we get from Bletchley Park to modern software engineering? Dr Black will discuss how the use of social media can leverage capability in very diverse areas, from campaigning for a historical site to improving the quality of software.
