During the Virtual Undergraduate Town Hall Event, you will join students from around the world in a virtual mentoring event where you will learn about cutting edge research in the field of computing. You will have the opportunity to ask distinguished computer scientists any questions you might have.
Research Presentation: Privacy in Today’s World
As information and computing technologies become more pervasive, so too does the concern about the privacy of sensitive information. In order to fulfill the promise of these technologies to make advances in areas such as health care, energy, and smart communities, it is necessary to ensure that privacy protections are built in to the solutions. In this talk, I will overview the challenges of privacy in today’s world as well as presenting some privacy solutions that can enable data to be used without violating individual privacy.
Mentoring Topic: Getting Involved in CS Extra-curricular Activities
Many schools have CS clubs and other groups including a general club for computer science students, women in computing groups, Hackathon competition teams, Cyber Defense teams, groups for outreach to high schools and middle schools, and more. Participating in these groups can help you be part of a community of students with similar interests, to become more engaged in computing, to develop leadership skills, and to find and be more prepared for internship and future job opportunities. We will discuss the value of joining such groups, or even starting your own!
Post-Discussion Chat: Join Rebecca Wright & Lori Pollock for a chat to continue the discussion about getting involved in CS extra-curricular activities, meet fellow students, and share your experiences.
Speaker: Rebecca Wright, Director, DIMACS, Professor, Department of Computer Science at Rutgers University
Host: Lori Pollock, Professor at the University of Delaware
