About the Event

Advances in data acquisition technology -- together with the imminent demise of Moore's Law -- are causing a revolution of sorts in algorithm design. Computing with massive data sets, data streaming, coping with uncertainty, priced computation, property testing, and sublinear algorithms are all parts of the story. So is the growing trend of using algorithms as modeling tools for natural phenomena. I will discuss the past and present of these developments and speculate about the future.
