Konrad Zuse

German inventor, one of the founders of modern computing. Best known as the creator of the first programmable (and Turing complete) computer in the world.
I remember mentioning to friends back in 1938 that the world chess champion would be beaten by a computer in 50 years time. Today we know computers are not far from this goal.More Konrad Zuse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is not true that virtually all news in a totalitarian state is false.More Konrad Zuse quotes [07/06/2011 09:07:05]
Of course, we knew that the official reports were sketchy, if not falsified. But, in terms of information theory, this is precisely where the problem lay: How were we to reconstruct reality from incomplete or false reports? It is not true that virtually all news in a totalitarian state is false. On the contrary, most news is completely correct, albeit tendentiously slanded; it is just that certain information is suppressed. One can adjust for the political slanting of the news, but there is virtually no way to fill in the omissions.More Konrad Zuse quotes [07/06/2011 09:07:50]
The danger of computers becoming like humans is not as great as the danger of humans becoming like computers.More Konrad Zuse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The belief in a certain idea gives to the researcher the support for his work. Without this belief he would be lost in a sea of doubts and insufficiently verified proofs.More Konrad Zuse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
