Christos Papadimitriou: 'Logicomix'/ talks at Google

Christos: LOGICOMIX is about the quest for the foundations of mathematics in the beginning of the 20th century, the subtle ways in which its ultimate failure brought about the computer, and the curious fact that so many of its protagonists had serious brushes with insanity. My talk, in addition to introducing the book, will discuss Logic as one of the three intellectual currents which eventually brought us computation.
