New Directions in Computer Science Research

Ciclo "Perspectivas Matemáticas"

Auditorio Alfonso Nápoles Gándara, Instituto de Matemáticas

Over the last 40 years, computer science research was focused on making computers useful.  Areas included programming languages, compilers, operating systems, data structures and algorithms.  These are still important topics but with the merging of computing and communication, the emergence of social networks, and the large amount of information in digital form, focus is shifting to applications such as the structure of networks and extracting information from large data sets. This talk will give a brief vision of the future and then an introduction to the science base that needs to be formed to support  these new directions.

The Future Role of Computer Science

Auditorio Alberto Barajas, Facultad de Ciencias

A major change is occurring in computer science as the field focuses on extracting information from the enormous amount of data that is currently available.  The emergence of social networks, the merging of computing and communication, and the scale of data requires a new science base to support the opportunities opened up by this unprecedented access to information. This talk will give a vision of the future along with an introduction to the science base that needs to be created to support the new directions of the field.
