Joan Feigenbaum, Yale University

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has launched a new effort in the nascent field of Computer Science and Law. In order to stimulate interest in the area and to articulate a broad and compelling agenda, ACM held an inaugural Symposium on Computer Science and Law at New York Law School in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City in October 2019. This talk will address challenges and opportunities in research, education, and institutional structure that are presented by ACM’s efforts in this area.

Speaker Bio: Joan Feigenbaum is the Grace Murray Hopper Professor of Computer Science at Yale University. Her research interests include: security, privacy, anonymity, and accountability; Internet algorithmics; and computational complexity. Feigenbaum is an Amazon Scholar, a Fellow of the ACM and the AAAS, a Member of the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering, and a Connecticut Technology Council Woman of Innovation. In 1998, she was an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians. As a member of the technical staff at AT&T Bell Labs in the early years of DIMACS, she was a central figure in many DIMACS programs. She was co-director of the 1997 DIMACS Research & Education Institute, (a three-week summer program on network security and cryptography), editor of the 2nd volume in the DIMACS Book Series, and a co-organizer of the DIMACS Special Year on Massive Data Sets, the Special Focus on Next Generation Networks Technologies and Applications, and the Special Focus on Computation and the Socio-Economic Sciences.
