Scott Aaronson (U. of Texas at Austin)

Location:  Zoom
Date & time: Wednesday, 09 February 2022 at 3:30PM - 4:30PM

Abstract: The Busy Beaver function, with its incomprehensibly rapid growth, has captivated generations of computer scientists, mathematicians, and hobbyists.  In this talk I'll offer a personal view of the Busy Beaver function 60 years after its introduction, emphasizing lesser-known insights, recent progress, and especially favorite open problems.
