2016 Paris C. Kanellakis Memorial Lecture: "Hamiltonian Paths in Antiquity" by Donald Knuth, Professor Emeritus Stanford University. 1 Dec 2016, Brown University Department of Computer Science.

About 1850, William Rowan Hamilton invented the Icosian Game, which involved finding a path that encounters all points of a network without retracing its steps. Variants of his game have turned out to be important in many modern computer applications. The speaker will give evidence that people have been interested in such questions since at least Graeco-Roman times. Furthermore, ingenious Sanskrit and Arabic documents from the ninth century, and continuing through medieval times, also reveal that this is perhaps the oldest nontrivial combinatorial problem in the history of civilization.

A reception will follow, including an "All Questions Answered with Professor Knuth" panel discussion.

This event is hosted by Sorin Istrail and Eli Upfal.

⚡️Apple and Google aim to make bots useful and AI assistants valuable by teaching them how to identify objects you're talking about, and understand what you want done, in context. This requires a shift from the traditional definition of a platform.
