Applying enterprising ideas from mathematics and computer science to help solve societal and environmental problems

Professor Jesse Hoey in Davis Centre

Cheriton School of Computer Science Professor Jesse Hoey has had a curious career trajectory.

His academic life began with an undergraduate degree in physics, followed by a master’s in physical oceanography, then a PhD in computer science with specialization in artificial intelligence. He even had a stint working with occupational therapists as part of his postdoctoral studies, where he applied his expertise in AI to develop assistive technologies for people with dementia.

Speaker videos now available from Privacy, Infrastructures, Policy

Privacy, Infrastructures, Policy speakers

Privacy, Infrastructures, Policy brought together researchers with international speakers from journalism, national security, academia and the corporate world to challenge these misconceptions. A central thread of each of the talks is the design, implementation, and benefits of privacy-enhancing social and technological infrastructures.
