The Washington Area Trustworthy Computing Hour (WATCH) seminar series

About the WATCH series:


Today we are regularly obliged to trust a cyberinfrastructure that is in fact untrustworthy. Transforming today’s infrastructure into one that can meet society’s growing demands is major national challenge and opportunity. Meeting the challenge requires not only technical advances in the fabric of computing and communication but also improved understanding of how individuals and organizations comprehend and use technology, how economic and policy incentives can affect adoption of new technology, and how to develop human-centered systems that can serve users with different national, cultural, and technical backgrounds around the planet. WATCH aims to provide a series of thought-provoking talks by innovative thinkers with ideas that illuminate these challenges and provide signposts toward solutions. The series is jointly organized by NSF’s Computer Science and Engineering (CISE) and Social, Behavioral, and Economic (SBE) Directorates and the Office of Cyberinfrastructure (OCI), and sponsored by the CISE Trustworthy Computing Program

Video and Audio will be available one month after each meeting. You can also visit the CISE webinar/webcast page for more WATCH information at: /events/event_group.jsp?group_id=20018&org=CISE
