George Dysons fascinating account of the early years of computers: Turings Cathedral is the story behind how the PC, ipod, smartphone and almost every aspect of modern life came into being. In 1945 a small group of brilliant engineers and mathematicians gathered at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, determined to build a computer that would make Alan Turings theory of a universal machine reality. Led by the polymath emigre John von Neumann, they created the numerical framework that underpins almost all modern computing - and ensured that the world would never be the same again. George Dyson is a historian of technology whose interests include the development (and redevelopment) of the Aleut kayak. He is the author of Baidarka; Project Orion; and Darwin Among the Machines. Unusual, wonderful, visionary. (Francis Spufford, Guardian). Fascinating...the story Dyson tells is intensely human...a gripping account of ideas and invention. Fascinating...the story Dyson tells is intensely human...a gripping account of ideas and invention. (Jenny Uglow). Glorious...as much a story of the personalities involved as of the discoveries they made, and you do not need any knowledge of computers or mathematics to enjoy the ride.
