Hypercomputation

HypercomputationCurrently, hypercomputation is still very theoretical and there is still enough to discuss. Hypercomputation concerns the study of computation beyond that defined by the Turing machine. It is a multi-disciplinary research area across a wide variety of fields, including computer science, philosophy, physics, electronics, biology and artifical intelligence.

For a seminar to be given at the university, I’ve written with two fellow students a paper about the pre-hypercomputation history, explanation of hypercomputation and the philosphy of hypercomputation and artificial intelligence.
