RTE reports on the Enigma Project in Insight@NUI Galway
The highly-acclaimed Enigma Project brings mathematics to life through the fascinating history of codes and code breaking. It brings participants on a journey from ancient times to World War Two and on to today’s world of hacking and internet encryption. This exciting project came to Insight@NUI Galway as part of the 2018 Galway Science Technology Festival, which ran from 11-25 November.
The British mathematician Dr James Grime hosted a series of special events and talks which included a demonstration of an authentic WWII Enigma machine. He also shared stories of its associations with Bletchley Park and the British mathematician and, father of computing, Alan Turing.
