Computers surround us in our daily lives, but the most powerful ideas of computing go beyond the sleek silver containers and glowing boxes. What are these ideas? And how do we prepare our kids for a world where more and more of the problems around us look like computers? 
To find out, we'll travel back in time: from a jacquard loom maker with his punch cards, an inventor obsessed with cogs and steam, an electrical engineer who combined laws of electrical circuits with eccentric English mathematical logic and countless other philosophers, material scientists, artists, dreamers and tinkerers. Technology is about humans, and big their ideas. 
Linda Liukas will talk about how we can move towards a more humane tech industry, and identifies what it means to approach technology from the unique perspective.
