Participants at the Macy conferences, which took place at the Beekman Hotel in New York City.
Scientists at the postwar Macy conferences sought a new vision of mind and society, but the digital world in which we now live is far removed from their dreams.
Trust in me.
We prefer to go with our guts.
Looking inside a quantum computer.
As companies make quantum computers available through their cloud services, take a look at what it means for computing to move beyond classical mechanics and into quantum physics.
Computer scientists can make important contributions to fixing societal ills.
There are many inspiring female computer scientists in and from Africa. They have the power to inspire young women who might think that computer science is 'only for men'.
Good mentoring can open up entirely new worlds for university students.
Mentoring programs can be enormously valuable for students, both in terms of their academic performance and their professional development.
Unmasking identities online.
You might think you're anonymous when you're browsing the web. But a new study shows that browsing history can often be tied to your real-world identity.
Girls who can, code.
How the geek effect and a sexist games industry is putting girls off a career in computing.

On Twitter's 10th birthday, we look at how researchers have used the platform for a range of studies, from predicting the next flu outbreak to identifying the happiest city in America.
CSIRAC was originally built in Sydney by the CSIRO before being transferred to Melbourne University.
The first in our series looking at the changes that have been made in computing and other areas in the 60 years since the first computer in an Australian university was switched on.
Simulating the human brain is proving tricky. But could mathematics based on symmetries help?
Scientists uncover hidden mathematical structures controlling how living cells operate. If this could be used by computers of the future, we may one day be able to understand the brain.
Obama visits students during a coding event at the White House.
President Obama wants every student to learn computer science. Are separate computing classes the only way to do this?

CSIRAC: Australia’s first computer has had a lasting impact.
University of Melbourne
It may have been big, slow and lacking in much memory but almost seven decades on we have a lot to thank the creators of Australia's first programmable computing machine.
Do the current stereotypes keep women from entering computer science?
Changing the design of a classroom can get more girls interested in computer science. Here's how.
