Enter the world of cellular automata! Popularized by Martin Gardner in the 1970s and adored by students, teachers, and enthusiasts of mathematics and computer science ever since, John Conway's Game of Life has been called the world's most fascinating one-player game. Though the rules for Life are extremely simple, the behavior of the game — exactly how a starting configuration will change over time — is impossible to fully predict. Mathematician and artist Bob Bosch will initiate us into the unexpected complexities of this early venture into the world of artificial "life."
