Over the past 70 years computing systems and algorithms have revolutionised nearly every facet of modern life, from healthcare to education, manufacturing to transport, and entertainment to agriculture. Computing hardware and the algorithms encoded into software are thus vital to the continued growth of modern society, as are computer scientists - the professionals who design and develop algorithms and computational solutions to many of the world’s problems. In this unit students will investigate some of the major computing system innovations over the past 70 years, to understand the role of computer scientists, computing hardware, algorithms and software as drivers of change and innovation. The unit will also look at recent developments and applications of computer science that are set to revolutionise our futures, such as digital currencies, intelligent machines, and the Internet of Things.
