Screening & Panel Discussion

George Boole was an English mathematician, philosopher, and logician. He specialized in differential equations and algebraic logic, and is now best known as the author of The Laws of Thought.

The huge impact of George Boole on technology today is explored in this stunning new film commissioned by University College Cork, where Boole was its first professor of mathematics. Narrated by Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons and produced by multi award-winning Oxford Film and Television, The Genius of George Boole assembles industry leaders and academics from across the globe to explore the life and impact of one of the world’s greatest unsung heroes. This 58-minute film shines new light on the life, work, and legacy of George Boole.

Join Museum CEO John Hollar as he moderates an engaging conversation, about the life and legacy of George Boole with three distinguished guests: Dr. Michael Murphy, President, University College Cork, Ireland; Mr. Nick Kent, Founder and Creative Director Oxford Film and Television, London, UK; and Dr. Kieran Drain, CEO of Tyndall National Institute, Cork, Ireland.
