Meet up

Unlimited Register Machines

Tuesday, 3rd November at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by The London Clojure Community in November 2015


Unlimited Register Machines

The philosopher Dan Dennett, in his recent book Intuition Pumps and Other Tools For Thinking, devotes a rather large section to URMs titled The Seven Secrets Of Computing Power Revealed.

I will demo a DSL, that is an interesting use of higher order functions, for a kind of URM . The hope is that by simulating the simplest possible register machine and building up complex algorithms you can understand what it means to compute, how a computer works and along the way we will prove the undecidability of the Halting Problem.
