Some Observations About Broader Societal Issues of Computing Research and Education

Speaker  William A. Wulf

Affiliation  President, National Academy of Engineering; Vice Chair, National Research Council

Duration  01:01:12

Date recorded  18 July 2005

This session of the 2005 Microsoft Research Faculty Summit investigates several things that distinguish scholarship and education in computing. Computing is both a rich intellectual discipline in its own right and an infrastructure that supports scholarship in other fields. Also, although all technology is changing increasingly rapidly, none is moving nearly as quickly as computing and communication technologies.

These and other properties are more pronounced in education than in other fields, and they impose both responsibilities and opportunities for academics in computer science and computer engineering. This talk investigates some of these responsibilities and opportunities and explores how the educational community might respond to them.
