Colossus, the world’s first large-scale electronic digital computer, was invented to help Bletchley Park’s cryptanalysts break into the complex Lorenz cipher used by the German High Command.
This panel discussion, to be held in The Fellowship Auditorium, brings together three individuals to explore the history and the workings of this ground-breaking machine: Dave Abrutat, Departmental Historian at GCHQ; Phil Hayes, Chief Engineer of Colossus Rebuild at The National Museum of Computing(TNMOC); and Martin Gillow, creator of Virtual Colossus.
This event is part of Colossus 80.
This event is aimed at those with an interest in Colossus and/or computing, but no particular expertise or knowledge is required.
