Tomorrow, fellow super hackers, we will experience computing history again.  The Poznan Bombe Roadshow (aka “Enigma Live”) attempts to break Germany’s World War 2 Enigma code again, using a reconstructed Turing-Welchman Bombe. The presentations at World Compter Conference in Poznan, Poland will be video linked with the Bombe in the National Museum of Computing in Bletchley Park. This way we will experience the expertise of scientists in their presentations while also witnessing the code cracking taking place at Bletchley Park. At the conference, we can enjoy talks about cryptography, the Bombe and Alan Turing, from presenters including Sir Dermot Turing, Dr Marek Grajek and Dr Roger Johnson.

 

Anyone can watch and hear the live challenge to find the Enigma key and hear the presentations at http://wcc2018.org/Enigma-live

More information can be obtained on the the National Museum of Computing website and the World Compter Conference website
