SCS Distinguished Lecture
Nov 7, 2013
The School of Computer Science Distinguished Lecture Series presents Shafi Goldwasser, the RSA Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT and professor of computer science and applied mathematics at Weizman Institute of Science. Goldwasser's talk is titled "The Cryptographic Lens." Goldwasser says in the last 35 years, cryptography has become the general study of correctness and privacy of computation in the presence of computationally bounded adversary, and as such has changed how we think of proofs, reductions, randomness, secrets and information. In her talk, she'll discuss some beautiful developments in the theory of computing through this cryptographic lens, and the role cryptography can play in the next successful shift from local to global computation.
