WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The co-founder of Apple stopped by Purdue Tuesday evening.
Thousands of students and community members listened to Steve Wozniak answer the question of what if we lose control of technology?
The computer pioneer spoke in Elliott Hall of Music with his two Apple II series computers on stage about artificial intelligence, automation and of course Apple.
He talked about the creation of what is now the billion dollar company he started with the late Steve Jobs.
This is all part of Purdue's Giant Leaps Sesquicentennial Campaign.
Wozniak is an inventor, engineer, and technology entrepreneur and because of that some West Lafayette community members wanted to hear what he had to say.
"I think there is a lot of resiliency that he probably had to show and I think that is something that is really important especially living in a university town with very high standards." said Elina Gorenstein.
"I kind of want to see how he got the idea of doing this because it became such a big company and it just seems kind of interesting to see how he came up with the idea," said Julia Gorenstein.
The event started at 6 p.m. and was open to the public.
