It is under the joint umbrella of the British Computer Society, the London Science Museum and the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry. Many of the society's meetings are held at the Science Museum.

Famous quotes containing the words society, computer and/or conservation:

    The circumstances of human society are too complicated to be submitted to the rigour of mathematical calculation.
    Marquis De Custine (1790–1857)

    The analogy between the mind and a computer fails for many reasons. The brain is constructed by principles that assure diversity and degeneracy. Unlike a computer, it has no replicative memory. It is historical and value driven. It forms categories by internal criteria and by constraints acting at many scales, not by means of a syntactically constructed program. The world with which the brain interacts is not unequivocally made up of classical categories.
    Gerald M. Edelman (b. 1928)

    A country grows in history not only because of the heroism of its troops on the field of battle, it grows also when it turns to justice and to right for the conservation of its interests.
    Aristide Briand (1862–1932)
