In this course, I want to be more specific and look at the way computers represent and handle data. The course aims to:
broaden the definition of a computer and explain the concept of crossing the boundary between the computer's world and our own
explain the digital nature of the computer's world and contrast it with our analogue world of sense and motion
describe in detail how to transform features of our world into computer representation
look at ways in which digital information in the computer can be displayed for our eyes and ears ;
consider the amazing implications of being able to use the computer to manipulate and transform digital representations of our world.
