    Avoiding Death by Computer,

    Harold Thimbleby, Swansea University

    Wednesday 24th February at 7.30 pm Dylan Thomas Centre

    One of the reasons why people make mistakes is that the systems they use are badly designed, whether office software or gadgets. (The problems poor design causes are perhaps nowhere more alarming than in hospital errors involving drug delivery systems.) This talk reviews some typical issues and shows that many causes can be prevented by better design, and better programming in particular. The talk will be of interest to anybody who uses computers or interactive devices, from calculators to infusion pumps. People attending will learn how to get almost any result they like out of spreadsheets…..

    Harold Thimbleby is Emeritus Gresham Professor of Geometry and a Royal Society-Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellow at Swansea University.
