The Beauty and Joy of Binary Numbers

Speaker:  Dan Garcia – Millbrae, CA, United States
Topic(s):  Computational Theory, Algorithms and Mathematics


(This is meant for the general public, especially young children)
In this interactive demonstration, we explain binary numbers, the foundation of electrical engineering and computer science. We will begin with an audience-participation session that cover the basics of binary, then beguile with a seemingly unconnected Josephus problem magic trick, and conclude by playing and teaching the audience Nim, an elegant game they'll never lose again!
