The First Power Couple of the Computer Age

Hosted by Ingrid Daubechies with guest and author
Ananyo Bhattacharya

Monday, November 6 at 6:00 pm

(in person)

John von Neumann is widely recognized not only as a mathematical genius, but as a seminal founder of the computer age.  In contrast, the role of his wife, Klara Dan — the first person to write a modern computer program — remains woefully unappreciated.  Join author Ananyo Bhattacharya, von Neumann's biographer, and Ingrid Daubechies, MoMath's Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics, for a fascinating discussion about the roles this remarkable couple played in catalyzing the development of the modern computer.
