The archives of Queen Mary Emeritus Professor of Theoretical Computation, Peter Landin, are now available at the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford. A Larger-Than-Life Figure: An outstanding academic computer scientist, political radical, and bisexual gay rights activist, his work laid the foundation for the software that powers today’s laptops, desktops, and the Internet.

Dating from 1953 to 2006, they cover 22.35 linear meters (148 physical dimensions) and are written in English, French, German, Hebrew, Polish and Russian. With the bulk of his papers dating from the 1960s to the 1970s, papers from those years trace Landin’s creative pioneering contributions to the discipline of computer science, particularly computer programming languages, and then the gradual decline of enthusiasm and cynicism towards computing.

A stereotypical eccentric academic, much of the collection was preserved and written on the back of ephemera, such as posters, leaflets, brochures and correspondence from charities and organizations he supported. These fragments trace the path of a true scientific innovator.

His son Daniel Landin said: “I’m so glad the archives are accessible and appreciated! When my father died, his house remained a heaped monument to his brain, each wall then had a shelf built on it, and in front of many of these shelves, were in some cases other shelves, sometimes on wheels (cannibalized supermarket trolley bases!) This posed a huge challenge as to how to keep such an intense and personal archive, and when the Bodleian asked to keep it, my sister Louise, my mother Hanne and I were very grateful.

The Queen Mary’s Computer Building, located at 10 Godward Square, E1 4FZ, is named after her.

“In the early days of computing, software written for one brand of machine didn’t work on any other. Computer scientists wanted to define “programming languages” that could be universally understood. That this is normal today – Internet software, for example, can run on all types of computers – is a consequence of Peter’s insight that the meaning of a computer program could be identified in logic mathematical and freed from the control of the manufacturer. wrote Richard Bornat, a former computer science professor at Queen Mary University of London, in Peter’s obituary for The Guardian.

As Bornat notes, Peter was far from a bookish, prudish scholar, and he included famous jokes in the presentation of his ideas. For example, early programming languages ​​had names derived from acronyms and shorthand phrases that sounded very technical and machine-like: like Fortran (short for FORmula TRANslation) and Algol (short for ALGOrithmic Language), so when Peter first introduced a programming language, he called it ISWIM, for “If you see what I mean.”, because a key innovation was that it had a logical definition, which defined precisely what what each programming construct meant. His joke was a real technical breakthrough, and his computer language ideas form the basis for many later developments in programming languages, including Java and JavaScript applications that form the basis of many web pages.

After a stint as a researcher in New York and an academic at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he returned to Great Britain in 1967 and held a chair at Queen Mary College London, now Queen Mary University of London, where he remained for the rest of his academic career, most recently as Professor Emeritus of Theoretical Calculus. He enthusiastically taught students and colleagues with whom he worked as research assistants.

However, as Richard Bornat notes in Peter’s obituary: “Towards the end of his life, Peter became convinced that computing might have been a bad idea, supporting for-profit commercial interests and a surveillance state. , and that he had wasted his energies promoting it. But whether he likes it or not, his ideas underpin developments to this day. ”

Computing professor Paul Curzon said: “Having Peter’s archive housed at the Bodleian leaves a wonderful and lasting legacy, and is very appropriate given his achievements. This reflects his enormous stature and massive accomplishments in the field of computing as well as his grassroots activism for social rights, especially as a prominent gay rights activist. This will give historians of IT and the LGBTQ+ rights movement unique insight into his research and the campaigns he was involved in. Our research students working in the Peter Landin building should be proud of his role as the “founding father” of a significant part of computing and as a social rights activist.

Computer science professor Edmund Robinson said: “Holding Peter’s archive at the Bodleian is a fitting legacy for one of the country’s pioneering computer scientists. Having worked with him at the end of his career here, I suspect he would have scoffed at this establishment tribute while secretly delighted. Peter was a truly inspirational figure, embodying everything we think best of Queen Mary: a great scientist with a real social conscience and concern for diversity.

Swinburne astrophysicist and ‘cosmic sleuth’ Dr Sara Webb is one of 60 scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians selected as STEM Superstar 2022.

The announcement was made today by the Minister of Industry and Science, MP Ed Husic.

A day in the life of an astrophysicist

The Center for Astrophysics and Supercomputing (CAS) in Swinburne is home to some of the world’s most brilliant astrophysicists, including Dr Sara Webb.

Dr Webb joined Swinburne as a PhD candidate in astrophysics in 2018 and is now a postdoctoral researcher. She always knew she wanted to be some scientist.

“From marine biology to archaeology, I was obsessed with understanding the world and universe we live in. As a teenager, I started listening to online lectures about astronomy and I fell in love. That led me to enroll in a bachelor of science where I could minor in astrophysics,” she says.

She spends her days doing research, leading programs for the next generation of scientists, and talking about space in the media and on social media.

“Something that might surprise people is that computer programming is a big part of most astronomers’ work. There is so much data that if we manually process it, it would take longer than most people’s working lives. That’s why we use supercomputing and machine learning to help us process data.

“But there are never two identical days for an astrophysicist. Some days I do user testing in our Cyber-Human Discovery Lab, program or process data. On other days, I might be in the biology labs or running the SHINE program,” she says.

Dr. Webb helps coordinate Swinburne High School’s two space programs: the Swinburne Haileybury International Space Station Experiment (SHINE) and the Swinburne Youth Space Innovation Challenge. This involves teaching students in grades 10-12 about space technology and even creating an experiment to send to the International Space Station (ISS). Last year’s winning team sent a yogurt into space!

Swinburne’s chief scientist and astronomer herself, Professor Virginia Kilborn, was delighted to see Dr Webb given an even bigger platform to inspire our young people.

“I’m thrilled to have Sara join the Superstars of STEM program,” she says.

“Sara is an exceptional science communicator, and her new role as a STEM superstar will broaden her reach to inspire even more people to engage with STEM fields.”

Dr. Webb spends much of his time programming data from telescopes

What is a STEM Superstar?

Superstars of STEM is a Science & Technology Australia initiative funded by the Australian Government’s Department of Industry, Science and Resources.

Through a highly competitive selection process, the program selects 60 women and non-binary STEM experts and gives them the training, confidence, networks, and experience to become sought-after media commentators as experts in their fields.

Science & Technology Australia chief executive Misha Schubert said the initiative aims to create role models in STEM for the next generation.

“We know it’s really hard to be what you can’t see. That’s why this groundbreaking program helps break down stereotypes about what a scientist, technologist, engineer or mathematician looks like,” she says.

“By becoming highly visible role models in the media, these STEM superstars are showing our diverse next generations of young people – especially our daughters and non-binary children – that STEM is for them.”

Industry and Science Minister Ed Husic MP announced the 60 STEM Superstars.

“The need to boost diversity in our science, technology, engineering and math sector is urgent. There are huge skills shortages that can be solved if we put our collective minds and efforts into it – meaning we need to tap deep into our country’s expertise in every corner of the community.

“I’ve always been a fan of how the Superstars of STEM program pushes for a diverse STEM workforce and ensures the next generation of scientists and technologists have visible role models.

“I just know that these talented experts and communicators will play their part in inspiring young Australians – from all walks of life – towards science and technology.”

Follow on social networks

Dr. Webb is a media favorite – you’ll often see her on TV or hear her on the radio. She also creates great TikToks and Instagram Reels to @sarawebbscience.

With her new official STEM Superstar title, we’re sure to see more of her.

“Astronomy is one of those awesome fields that can appeal to audiences of all ages in STEM. It was through astronomy that I became a scientist,” she says.

“Sharing the joy of science has always been a passion, and I’m thrilled to do so through the Superstars of STEM program.”

Robert Eugene “Bob” Blankenship87, of Mooresville, North Carolina, passed away on Thursday, November 3, 2022. Bob and his wife Vernell celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary in October.

Born in Charleston, W.Va., he was the son of the late Ira French Blankenship and Essie Mae Morrison. After graduating from Charleston High in 1953, he enlisted in the United States Army, where he served with the 82nd Airborne, based at Fort Bragg. After returning home, he went to West Virginia Tech for barber school. After trying his hand at cutting hair, he decided to enroll at ECPI in Cleveland, Ohio to learn computer programming. He eventually moved to Charlotte to work for JP Stevens, then Duke Power, where he was a computer specialist.

Bob was a classic car enthusiast and he always had a vintage car in his garage. He has restored cars including a 1940 Mercury convertible, a 1950 Ford sedan, a 1969 VW Bug, and a 1946 Ford coupe. He has won an award for at least one of his restoration projects. He enjoyed tinkering with cars and attending auto shows. He spent all day at the annual Food Lion car show at Charlotte Motor Speedway and any other car shows he could find.

Building birdhouses and feeders was another of his hobbies. He liked to sit by the window and watch the birds flock to his creations. He was an avid reader. His favorite books were mysteries and Christian fiction.

He adored his grandson Alec Ingwall, the light of his life. When Alec was very young, Bob would dress up as Santa Claus every Christmas Eve and visit the youngster. He stopped when Alec was old enough to ask why Papaw always disappeared when Santa came around.

Besides Vernell and Alec, he is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Teresa and Bruce Ingwall of Mooresville; and one sister, Goldie Ellen Blackwell and her husband Richard, of Sun City, Arizona. He also leaves to mourn several beloved nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his daughter, Lisa Rochell Blankenship; siblings French Allen Blankenship and Charles William Blankenship, twin brother, Thomas Wesley Blankenship; Elizabeth Ann Hayes and Nancy Louise Albert.

Maker space at Timberlands Center to be named after school dean Fay Jones https://formes.asia/maker-space-at-timberlands-center-to-be-named-after-school-dean-fay-jones/ Sat, 29 Oct 2022 10:37:41 +0000 https://formes.asia/maker-space-at-timberlands-center-to-be-named-after-school-dean-fay-jones/ FAYETTEVILLE — A sprawling maker space inside the Anthony Timberlands Center for Design and Materials Innovation being built will be named after Peter MacKeith — dean of the University of Arkansas, Fay Jones School of Fayetteville Architecture and Design – courtesy of a $2.5-million donation from UA-Fayetteville alumnus John Ed Anthony and his wife, Isabel. […]]]>

FAYETTEVILLE — A sprawling maker space inside the Anthony Timberlands Center for Design and Materials Innovation being built will be named after Peter MacKeith — dean of the University of Arkansas, Fay Jones School of Fayetteville Architecture and Design – courtesy of a $2.5-million donation from UA-Fayetteville alumnus John Ed Anthony and his wife, Isabel.

The 9,000 square foot manufacturing space, which will be the center’s largest indoor space and will take up much of the ground floor while opening onto a manufacturing yard, will be known as the Workshop and Peter Brabson MacKeith II Manufacturing Laboratory, according to the university. . The Center is expected to open in the fall of 2024.

The Anthonys also made the lead gift of $7.5 million toward the establishment of the Center, in 2018, according to the university. The Center will house the Fay Jones School’s wood and wood graduate program and be the epicenter of its multiple wood and wood initiatives, as well as the school’s existing design-build program and an expanded digital fabrication lab.

“We are extremely grateful for the generous commitment and vision of the Anthony family,” Mark Power, vice chancellor for advancement, said in a statement from the university. “They have inspired collaboration and garnered support from friends and benefactors to support important sustainable wood and wood design initiatives originating in Arkansas.”

This fabrication shop will be the heart of the building – its largest and busiest space – encompassing a central bay with a metallurgical workshop, a seminar room, a small digital lab and dedicated space for a large CNC router (a Computer Numerical Controlled machine that uses computer programming to control a high-speed rotary cutter to perform cutting and shaping operations), according to the university. An overhead crane running on inside-out rails will move large equipment and products inside and outside the Centre.

The center is not on the main UA-Fayetteville campus, but rather in the university’s new Windgate Art and Design District on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in the southern part of town. The Anthony Timberlands Center is designed by Grafton Architects, a Dublin-based firm whose co-founders won the 2020 Pritzker Prize, considered one of the best – if not the best – prizes in architecture.

The latest cost estimate for the Center is $33.5 million, the majority of which is covered by private donations — such as the Anthonys’ contribution — with the rest paid for by university funds.

The four-story, 44,800-square-foot center will also include studios, seminar and conference rooms, faculty offices, a small auditorium and public exhibit space, according to the university. The Fay Jones School is a leading proponent of innovation in wood and wood design, and the Center will have a similar aim.

MacKeith, who has served as dean of the Fay Jones School since 2014, “introduced not only me, but the entire Arkansas forest products community, to concepts that were happening all over the world,” Anthony said in a statement. university press. “He did it almost alone. He formed committees, he gave speeches, he incorporated his zeal to bring groups of people together to hear about these innovations that hadn’t been brought to America.”

Therefore, it is “appropriate that the manufacturing space at the heart of the research center be named in honor of Dean Peter MacKeith and in recognition of his leadership in this transformative enterprise for the university and the state”, Power said in a statement from the university.

MacKeith’s efforts and guidance are one of the reasons Anthony wanted to make a second donation to the Center that would specifically recognize MacKeith’s contributions.

“There’s only one person responsible for bringing this project to fruition – and that’s not me. It’s Peter MacKeith, and I can’t think of anything more fitting than naming the space of design and fabrication of this building in his honor,” Anthony said in the university’s press release. “That’s what Isabel and I wanted to do because of her influence, and the enthusiasm shown by other donors to join us has been very encouraging.”

Anthony holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Sam M. Walton College of Business, previously served on the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees, and is a member of the Arkansas Business Hall of Fame. from Walton College. He and his wife are part of the university’s Towers of Old Main, a giving society for the university’s most generous benefactors, as well as the Chancellor’s Society, the university’s most prestigious annual giving group. .

Cryptocurrencies have taken the world by storm and are now used in a variety of applications and services.

If you want to grab some of this explosion, either individually or as a developer of a new app, you may need to use a cryptocurrency API to ensure you receive the best features and capabilities.

All of these APIs simplify the complex world of cryptocurrency into understandable and usable data. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, and each can be targeted towards a particular type of software or application.

So, in this article, we have put together an analysis to highlight one of the most popular cryptocurrency exchange APIs.

What is a Cryptocurrency Trading API?

A crypto trading API is a software interface that allows you to automatically engage with a crypto trading platform. The API offers a list of instructions written in a certain computer programming language. The code specifies how you should connect to the cryptocurrency exchange, which includes:

  • The programming language you can use,
  • The syntax of the messages sent,
  • The maximum number of orders or requests you can send to the exchange each minute.

By writing the appropriate code, you can easily import a crypto trading platform into your account through an exchange API.

You can interact with a crypto-trading platform and send requests using programming languages ​​such as Python, Node.js, Java, and C#.

You can buy and sell assets, access historical and real-time market data, and perform more complex trading methods from your terminal by interacting with an API.

The core capabilities and benefits of a trading API are the same whether it is a stock trading API or a crypto market data API.

Cryptocurrency markets are open 24/7 and have one of the highest volatility of any asset class. You can work around this new asset class using API tools.

How to use a cryptocurrency API?

Cryptocurrency APIs require the same characteristics as any other API to function properly. The necessary API key is the first thing you will need if you want to use one. If you try an API for free to see how it works for your project, you may need to receive a second API key if you decide to subscribe.

All APIs consist of code that you enter into your application to gain access to API features and capabilities. They act as substitutes for writing the code functionality yourself, saving you not only coding time and effort, but also the time and effort of locating the data required for each feature.

Once you’ve obtained an API key, you’ll need to check the developer documentation to make sure it’s implemented correctly.

From there, you can usually dive into the coding and make minor changes to the features and services exposed to app users. You can also customize API call frequency and other backend details to ensure your needs match the subscription level you have chosen.

Even after following these steps, you may still need to debug to ensure that you are getting the most out of the API and to troubleshoot any issues you encounter.

CEX.IO Trading API

CEX.IO is a regulated crypto exchange with over 5 million users worldwide. It was founded in 2013. For their crypto trading and exchange APIs, Websocket and REST are two options.

You can use their WebSocket API cryptocurrency exchange at:

  • Check your account balance.
  • Sign up for a newsletter to get book orders.

You can use their REST API to:

  • View your transaction history and account balance.
  • Get real-time price feeds and access price charts.
  • In pairs, you can check and cancel your open orders.

Their REST API is great for communicating with your trading orders, while their WebSocket API is better for placing orders and getting market data. Getting started with the CEX.IO API is simple thanks to their comprehensive documentation.

What are the benefits of trading with CEX.IO APIs?

Some of the benefits of trading via CEX.IO APIs are:

  • The rapidity: Transactions are performed instantly with CEX.IO APIs if a set of predefined conditions are met.
  • Arbitration possibilities: CEX.IO APIs can automatically find and execute arbitrage opportunities on your behalf, regardless of the duration of the price difference.

SAN FRANCISCO (October 20, 2022) – Archivethe first decentralized physical museum in the world, announced its latest acquisition: the museum of Rafael Lozano-Hemmer Hormone, a generative artwork that features sequences of ocean waves crashing and releasing airborne text particles. Combining complex chemistry with computer programming, the installation’s visual display links crashing ocean waves with chemical acronyms to represent the chronobiological changes that occur within the human body.


See the full Lozano-Hemmer exhibition, Common Measures, from Pace Gallery here: https://www.pacegallery.com/exhibitions/rafael-lozano-hemmer-common-measures/.


Inspired by her growing children, Lozano-Hemmer’s work uses technology to depict the relationship between nature and human chemistry. In our body, many different cycles of time occur simultaneously, from circadian rhythms of waking and sleeping to extensive but relentless patterns of growth, reproduction and aging. In HormoneLozano-Hemmer reminds people to live in tandem with the ever-changing world around us, represented in the symbiosis between man and nature, chemicals and waves.


“Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is one of the few artists to erase the boundaries of technology, nature and art while bridging the gap between all three. Lozano-Hemmer’s work is representative of all humans, and the long but finite nature of his works aligns with Arkive’s own mission to deconstruct how and what a museum’s collections can truly personify.The Arkive community is proud to host Hormone to our collection and is inspired by the artist’s own reflective pieces,” said Tom McLeod, co-founder and executive director of Arkive.


Designed to live for 90 years, the Lozano-Hemmer facility is currently hormonally zero years old. Created alongside an endocrinologist and a computer programmer, the book represents the link between the individual physical vessel and the intrinsic timeline of all life systems, whether waves or chemical processes. .


Hormone captures the universality of growth through change. Some hormones crumble quickly while others slowly wash up on the shore. I hope the acquisition and elevation of this work inspires viewers to be compassionate towards others… embracing the chaos and beauty we all experience with different intensity through the stages of life” , said an Arkive community member.


This acquisition joins five other works of art and cultural artifacts to expand Arkive’s “When Technology Changed the Game” collection. The first cultural artifact introduced into Arkive’s collection was the patent for the world’s first computer, the ENIAC (1946). Next is Seduction (1985), a vintage photograph by Lynn Hershman Leeson, followed by Pat Gorman’s prototype MTV Moonman (1984), followed by Arkive’s first video art acquisition, Eulogy for a Black Mass by Aria Dean. Prior to HormoneArkive’s fifth and final acquisition was Madonna’s three fabric fans from her “Vogue” performance for the 1990 MTV Video Music Awards.


Arkive is accepting applications from the first 1,000 members. As an alpha member, you’ll have curated power, access to IRL and digital experiences, and early access to Arkive’s future NFT-based membership.

About Rafael Lozano-Hemmer
Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is a Mexico City-born artist who works at the intersection of architecture and performance art, creating platforms for audience participation using technologies such as robotic lights, digital fountains , computerized surveillance, media walls and telematic networks. Inspired by phantasmagoria, carnival and animatronics, his works of light and shadow are, in his words, “anti-monuments for the extraterrestrial agency”.


Lozano-Hemmer was the first artist to represent Mexico at the Venice Biennale with an exhibition at Palazzo Van Axel in 2007, and his work has been shown at the biennials of Cuenca, Havana, Istanbul, Kochi, Liverpool, Melbourne NGV, Moscow, New Orleans, New York ICP, Seoul, Seville, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney and Wuzhen. His public art has been commissioned for the millennium celebrations in Mexico City (1999), the expansion of the European Union in Dublin (2004), the memorial to the student massacre in Tlatelolco (2008), the Vancouver Olympics (2010 ), the pre-opening exhibition of the Guggenheim in Abu Dhabi (2015) and the activation of the Raurica Roman Theater in Basel (2018).


About Arkeve
Arkive is the world’s first decentralized physical museum. Arkive’s brand new model of how a museum can operate empowers people to curate and select culturally significant items rather than institutions. Built by MoMA and Gagosian alumni, Arkive was co-founded by Tom McLeoda 5x founder who left his last startup, Omni, for Coinbase, and before that ran Pagelime (acquired by SurrealCMS in 2015), LolConnect (acquired by Tencent in 2012), and Imaginary Feet who developed over 15 profitable iPhone apps loved by over 10 million users.

The advent of computers is perhaps the most significant development in mathematics over the past century. An important topic that laid the foundation for functional programming languages, as well as perhaps more famous lambda calculus, is combinatorial logic, invented by Moses Schönfinkel in 1920.

In combinatorial logic we have combinators, which can be combined to simulate any computer program. Theoretically, various instances of the two combinators called S and K suffice for this. However, additional combinators are usually used to simplify and shorten the program. A set of combinators that lends itself to a simple conversion of any intended behavior into combinatorial logic is one containing the six combinators S, K, I, B, C, and Y, each with a very specific, but very simple definition.

Remarkably, these six combiners can simulate mathematical objects like numbers, as well as number operations like addition and multiplication. They can also simulate TRUE and FALSE logical constructs, in addition to standard Boolean operations such as AND, OR, and NOT. Incredibly, they can additionally simulate data structures such as pairs and lists.

Last summer, Alexander Farrugia and Giorgio Grigolo took part in the second edition of the Mathematics Summer Exhibition, hosted by famed YouTuber Grant Sanderson (aka 3Blue1Brown) and James Schloss. Farrugia and Grigolo’s submission was a YouTube video explaining the basics of combinatorial logic. This video can be viewed here.

This is an impressive feat, given that the numbers to sort,

Subsequently, Farrugia used the Haskell functional programming language to write software that converts a program, written in a very rudimentary language, into combinatorial logic, and then the resulting combinatorial logic expression is evaluated to obtain the required output.

The techniques used to successfully create this software are explained in the previously mentioned YouTube video. Rudimentary constructs such as truth values, numbers, pairs, and lists were also programmed using combinatorial logic, so execution time is slow.

However, the plain language is expressive enough to allow the implementation of algorithms like Quicksort, a sorting method that is usually first learned in advanced-level computer science courses.

This is an impressive feat, given that the numbers to be sorted, the natural order of the numbers, and the list they were in had to be simulated using combinatorial logic before even implementing the algorithm.

Although combinatorial logic is mainly of theoretical interest, this work is proof that mathematics is at the heart of all calculation.

Locally: The polynomial reconstruction problem asks whether the eigenvalues ​​of a graph – important in theoretical chemistry – can be reconstructed from those of its vertexless subgraphs. In a 2021 paper, Alexander Farrugia of Junior College, University of Malta showed that this problem is solved for graphs that have more than half of their eigenvalues ​​shared by only one of their vertex-deleted subgraphs.

Internationally: The problem of minimizing the area of ​​a cluster of bubbles was posed by John Sullivan in 1999. According to eminent mathematicians, this problem took at least a century to solve. However, in June 2022, Emanuel Milman of the Technion in Haifa, Israel, and Joe Neeman of the University of Texas published a groundbreaking paper in which they solved Sullivan’s problem for three bubbles in at least three dimensions, and for four bubbles in at least four dimensions.

• Within a month since this year’s deadline Mathematics Summer Exhibitionthe submitted videos have collectively generated over seven million views on YouTube.

• Although functional programming languages ​​are not as widely used as imperative languages ​​like Python, they are still used in industry. Indeed, the functional language Erlang has been used to implement certain functionalities of Facebook and WhatsApp.

• Schönfinkel only published two articles in his lifetime. This was due to mental health issues, which he endured for over 15 years until his untimely death in 1942.

• Haskell Curry rediscovered combinatorial logic a few years after Schönfinkel and continued Schönfinkel’s work. Curry initially focused on demonstrating that combinatorial logic could be used as the foundation of mathematics.
