“REvolution of Computing” (CSE Faculty Lecture)

The Science & Engineering Library is pleased to invite you to a lecture by Professor Ryan Kastner entitled, “REvolution of Computing.”

Thursday, January 27, 2011
3:00 – 4:00 pm
Science & Engineering Library

In the past century, the number and impact of computers has grown from just a few in the entire world
to the point today where they far outnumber humans, and permeate every aspect of our lives. The unprecedented growth in computation has ushered in an age of cheap, yet extremely powerful processors. This talk will present a brief history of computation, highlighting the various computing revolutions which have occurred. Also included will be an overview of research projects on embedded computing systems being developed at UCSD, covering topics like biomedical imaging, robotics, ecological monitoring, and the technology behind the National Geographic Engineers for Exploration program.

Ryan Kastner is Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and Co-Director of the National Geographic Engineers for Exploration. Prior to joining UCSD in 2007, he was Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UC Santa Barbara. He received his PhD in computer science at UCLA, a masters degree in engineering and BS in both electrical engineering and computer engineering at Northwestern University.

The lecture is free and open to students, faculty, staff, and the public. Please register online at http://tinyurl.com/ucsd-cse-lectures.

Light refreshments will be served. More information.
