The Origins Of The Digital Universe

Science historian George Dyson on the birth of the digital age, and where we stand now. We are living in a digital world. We know it, but sometime we still don’t get it… just how much and how fast the world around us is changing in the digital embrace. Historian George Dyson says it all goes back to huge ideas at the dawn of the computer age. When physicists and mathematicians scrambled to break Nazi codes, and then to build machines that could calculate the unfathomable destructive power of the hydrogen bomb. We have used computers to build a new age, he says. Now computers use us. This hour, On Point: George Dyson on the birth of the digital age, and where we stand now.
