Beyond CRYPTO workshop: August 19

[Unrelated note: Huge congratulations to Costis Daskalakis – winner of the 2018 Nevanlinna medal!]

As part of the CRYPTO 2018 conference (August 19-23, Santa Barbara, CA), there is a set of of affiliated events. The conference organizers (Tal Rabin, Elette Boyle, and Fabrice Benhamouda)  asked me  to advertise the workshop Beyond Crypto: A TCS Perspective (itself organized by Yuval Ishai and Guy Rothblum) on August 19th that can be of particular interest to theoretical computer scientists.

Among the speakers will be:

  • Aleksander Madry (MIT) will talk about “Machine Learning and Security: The Good, the Bad, and the Hopeful”
  • Cynthia Dwork (Harvard) will talk about “Theory for Society: Crypto on Steroids”.
  • Virginia Vassilevska Williams (MIT) will talk about “A Fine-Grained Approach to Complexity”
  • Mary Wootters (Stanford) will talk about “Cryptography, Local Decoding, and Distributed Storage”
  • Scott Aaronson (UT Austin) will talk about “Certified Randomness from Quantum Supremacy”.

(I am also speaking in this workshop, and my talk is titled “On Optimal Algorithms and Assumption Factories”).
