Hilldale Lecture in Physical Sciences - Computer Science Theory: Past, Present, and Future
Professor Richard Lipton, Georgia Tech University
Monday, October 16, 2017
DeLuca Forum, Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, 330 North Orchard Street
Professor Richard Lipton, Georgia Tech University, will discuss what he believes are the biggest insights in computer science theory. They are not the obvious ones---at least not all are obvious. The talk should be accessible to almost anyone. Although some experts may disagree with his list of insights. Lipton will also make an attempt to outline what he sees as the future of computer science theory: what will happen in the next five, ten, and twenty years.
