George Boole examined in the story of software podcast, episode 7

Podcasts by Zartis – The Story of Software #7: George Boole

#George Boole Podcast

In this episode of our software podcast, we look at the life and legacy of George Boole. Boole was a 19th century mathematician, whose work laid the theoretical foundation for digital computing as we know it today. 

 

Note: The ‘History of Software’ podcast has been rebranded to The Story of Software. The focus remains on exploring technology from an evolutionary perspective of trying to understand how what we know today came to be. We will continue to explore topics from the early dawn of software technology to the state-of-the-art today and what is envisioned to come next.

 

We explore his symbolic logic and its impact on the evolution of modern computing – from the logic behind 0s and 1s in the circuits of a computer processor, to the instruction sequences at the basis of modern programming languages.
