  • O'Flaherty Theatre NUI Galway (map)


Enjoy an epic tale of man against machine – including a full demonstration with the original WWII Enigma Machine – as Dr. James Grime illuminates the brilliant mathematical insights and innovative thinking of Alan Turing. Known as one of the 20th Century’s greatest mathematicians, Turing was a pioneer of computer science who is best remembered for his role in breaking the Enigma, the purportedly unbreakable code used by the German military.

Dr James Grime is a mathematician and public speaker. James now runs The Enigma Project and travels the world giving public talks on the history and mathematics of codes and code breaking. James is also a presenter of the YouTube channel numberphile.
