Prof Paul Curzon will give a free talk via Zoom about a version of the Turing Machine that can be demonstrated in class using chocolate.

Turing Machines were invented by Alan Turing before the first computers were created as a model of computation. It strips the idea of what computation is down to a very simple idea of a machine.

Learn how to make a working Turing Machine out of chocolate (symbols after all can be anything). There is no reason why a computer shouldn’t taste nice too.
