The Assembly also noted that 2015 marks the bicentenary of the birth of George Boole, whose work on the application of the principles of logic as a form of algebra underpins modern computer science.
On the historical side, Wolfram offers his views of the logician Kurt Godel, computer scientist (perhaps the original computer scientist) Alan Turing and mathematicians John von Neumann and George Boole. Wolfram provides an especially extensive discussion of Ada Lovelace and her interactions with Charles Babbage as they contemplated the prospect of powerful computing engines a century ahead of their time.
He also took a rather obscure class on the algebra of the 19th-century logician-mathematician George Boole, who applied the value of "1" to statements that were "true" and the value of "0" to statements that were "false." This class soon would prove more impactful than anyone could have imagined.
