Summertime MOVIE NIGHT=>The Bit Player

Share

We proudly present, in partnership with the IEEE Foundation: "The Bit Player"


Recently in February 2021, as part of an innovative and fresh approach, i.e. a non-traditional meeting event: we presented a video documentary. This was very warmly received. So we decided to continue the good work.

We proudly present, in partnership with the IEEE Foundation: "The Bit Player"

Summary: One of Michigan’s famous sons, but not many Michiganders know about him: "The Bit Player" - a documentary about Claude Shannon the creator of the "Information Theory". You will learn more about or get a refresher on the impact Claude Elmwood Shannon made on the world today. This documentary was made in 2018 and brought to you by the IEEE Foundation who partially funded this along with the IEEE Information Theory Society. The trailer for this 90 minute video is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3OldEtfBrE&authuser=0

AFTER the movie - we will have a brief discussion/chat session. NOTE: You must supply your own soda pop and popcorn! :-)
