CHRISTMAS LECTURES 2008 - Hi-tech Trek In this series of CHRISTMAS LECTURES®, Professor Chris Bishop invites us on a journey into the high-tech world of computer technology. From the origin of the microprocessor to the development of the internet, the field of computer science has literally changed the way in which we live our lives. But the world of computers is vast and complicated, ranging from the architecture of microchips to use of quantum mechanics for data encryption – it's not always easy to know what exactly is going on inside the box. So how do computers work? Across five lectures, Professor Chris Bishop sheds light on some of these questions by tracing the evolution of the modern computer. The CHRISTMAS LECTURES® in 2008 were originally broadcast on Channel Five and were sponsored by Microsoft Research. Media Gallery Image: The Royal Institution Image: The Royal Institution
