Full Summary: Join us for the ARC6/SCS Distinguished Lecture by Shafi Goldwasser, RSA Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, MIT - Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.

Title: The Cryptographic Lens

Abstract:

Going beyond the basic challenge of private communication, over the last 35 years cryptography has become the general study of correctness and privacy of computation in the presence of a computationally bounded adversary, and as such it has changed how we think about proofs, reductions, randomness, secrets, and information.

In this talk I will 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.
