This lecture features 2 artists participating in the exhibition of art to celebrate the centenary of Alan Turing, the father of computer science which is on at the Georgina Scott Sutherland Library, Robert Gordon University, Garthdee Campus, Aberdeen, until 12 Oct 2012.

This exhibition titled ‘Intuition and Ingenuity’, which is part of the British Science Festival in Aberdeen, takes its name from Turing’s own writing on the subject of mathematical reasoning and brings together a number of important artists from digital art pioneers to emerging contemporaries such as Anna Dumitriu to investigate Turing’s enduring influence on art and contemporary culture.

Curator and artist Anna Dumitriu and participating artist Alex May discuss the “Intuition and Ingenuity” exhibition which looks at the influence of Alan Turing’s work in computation and artificial intelligence on art, in celebration of the centenary of his birth
