A Subway called Turing AI Computers Ian Stewart
The Ultimate in Anty-Particles Cellular Automata Ian Stewart
The Mutilated Chess Board Logic Simon Singh
A Random Walk in Arithmetic Randomness Gregory Chaitin God not only plays dice in physics but also in pure mathematics. Mathematical truth is sometimes nothing more than a perfect coin toss.

Yet it may be roundly asserted that human ingenuity cannot concoct a cipher which human ingenuity cannot resolve.
Genetic Algorithms AI Computing John H. Holland Computer programs that "evolve" in ways that resemble natural selection can solve complex problems even their creators do not fully understand.
Survival of the fittest bits AI Computing Rick L. Riolo A practical guide to creating a genetic algorithm.
El-Fish AI Computing Elizabeth Corcoran How to raise a school of tempting software toys.
Emotional Decisions Rational Thought Jeremy Hardie The theorists say decision-making is a logical process,but new research shows emotion is just as important.
Slaughter on 7th Avenue AI Computing Donald Michie The world's number one is still licking his wounds after IBM's chess computer beat him last month.But is Kasparov right to feel so hurt by the defeat?
A plague on all your mouses Viruses William Langley A year ago today David Smith,a"a geek with a grudge",released a computer virus on to an internet porn site.
Letter to City Life Geeks and Nerds People are quick to characterise the "sad" computer nerd,but who are they really?
