The SmartFriends™ U keynote lecture by Alex Stepanov provides almost two hours of good-natured fun while Alex takes us on a guided tour through 2500 years of fascinating history.

In Alex's words:

The talk describes development of Euclid's algorithm from early Pythagoreans to modern times. This development shows gradual evolution of a notion of abstract (or generic) algorithm. We maintain that while the term "generic programming" was introduced by Musser and Stepanov in 1988, the notion of algorithmic genericity goes back to remote centuries and is one of the main driving forces of mathematical progress. We will encounter some remarkable men and one great woman.
