Lecture abstract: A computer networking researcher traveling forward in time from 1985 to the present would be shocked by many things – not the least of which is the fact that people are still doing computer networking research over 30 years later. While some of the terminology would sound familiar, the networks themselves and what we use them for would be totally unrecognizable – yet quite impressive. For those of us who could not afford a time machine, we have observed a more gradual evolution interspersed with the occasional shocking development. This will be the highly personal story of my journey through these decades of change in the computer networking field. I will attempt to answer these very deep questions: What were the biggest surprises along the way? What came first: the Internet or content services? Were there any discernible evolutionary patterns? Is there anything left to do in networking? Are we having fun yet?
The Office of Research and Artificial Intelligence Institute are hosting a viewing of a webinar from The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. In this webinar presentation, professors Aarti Singh, Carnegie Mellon University, and Dave Donoho, Stanford University, will discuss the mathematics behind machine learning and how they enable predictive analyses. There will be a Q&A session following the presentation.

At this fireside chat moderated by Professor Wayne Chang of the Conrad Centre, two of the four co-founders of Flipp Corporation will talk about how they started their company and grew it from four to 400 employees in 12 years, how they initially and successfully identified a problem and solved it for consumers, and how they recently
