Raj Reddy Speaks at Heidelberg Forum

Monday, September 19, 2016 - by Byron Spice

Raj Reddy, the Moza Bint Nasser University Professor of Computer Science and Robotics, will be among the distinguished researchers speaking this week at the Heidelberg Laureate Forum, Sept. 18–23, in Heidelberg, Germany.

Reddy will present his talk, "Too Much Information and Too Little Time," on Thursday, Sept. 22. Talks are being streamed live and are available later for playback.

Building on the successful model of the annual Lindau Meeting of Nobel Laureates, the Heidelberg Laureate Forum brings together students and early-career researchers with winners of the Turing Award and Nevanlinna Prize in computer science, as well as the Abel Prize and Fields Medal in mathematics. Formal lectures occur each morning, with the remainder of the day set aside for students and researchers to meet informally with the laureates.

Reddy is the 1994 Turing Award laureate. CMU alum Ivan Sutherland, the 1988 Turing winner, also is participating in this year's forum.

The forum is a joint initiative of the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies and the Klaus Tschira Stiftung.
