Fun with Boolean Logic

A session at Skepticamp NYC 2010

Saturday 4th December, 2010

5:30pm to 5:50pm (EST)

Boolean logic sounds like it might fly in the face of skepticism: It posits that values are either completely "true" or "false", with no "gray areas" in between. But, it can be fun to work with! If you pile enough Boolean logic gates together, in the right way, you can solve just about any problem! (The evidence is in the computer you are using, right now!) Though, it often takes surprisingly few of them to solve certain seemingly complex challenges. Perhaps we can gain some exercise in finding out how, after an introduction to the topic and some tools that we can play with.

NOTE: Since Mitchell is the lead organizer for SkeptiCamp NYC, his session will be scheduled for last, and will only go on if there is time left for it. If the day runs late, his presentation might get cut out entirely. He doesn't really mind, though.
