The Bit Player Screens November 3 at MIT in Cambridge

The Bit Player Screens November 3 at MIT in Cambridge

Join us for the latest screening of the The Bit Player, the first feature film about Claude Shannon. The IEEE Information Theory Society has helped to produce this film, which combines interviews with leading scientists, archival film, inventive animation and compelling commentary from Shannon himself to tell the story of an overlooked genius who revolutionized the world, but never lost his childlike curiosity. Mark Levinson, director of the award-winning film Particle Fever, wrote, produced and directed The Bit Player.
