Abstract:

Mathematicians have now used computers for about 50 years. Their attitudes towards the acceptability of proofs that rely on computers have varied greatly at any given time in that period and have changed over time. Due to the length of time since my birth I have had the opportunity to observe these attitudes virtually since the beginning and I would like to share these observations.
