Discuss: Stripping down Computer Science
« on: 10/05/2012 14:41:46 »
This week, we'll strip computer science down to its components and find out what we should expect to see in the next 5 years. We find out about the thinking behind artificial intelligence, what the future holds for Second Life and how neuroscience can help us build truly intelligent computers. Plus, get your sunglasses out early this year for Kitchen Science where we make an LCD monitor vanish.

I've never liked the term Computer Science.

It can be argued that the theoretical elements are a science (in the same way that Mathmatics is a science), however, there is very little science in everyday, applied computing. No sign of hypothesis, test, revise here.
 
I'd prefer Computer Engineering.
