Dialogues in Complexity lecture

January 16, 2019 | 3 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. | Biodesign Institute Auditorium   

Bad actors are an enduring feature of life as we know it. Recently, we’ve heard about the effects of disinformation in social media campaigns and how disruptive forces may be responsible for election and voting hacks in the United States. As we seek to get out in front of these issues, we are learning from the bad actors that infect our immune systems. How do they do it – and how does our body’s natural reactions fight against the invaders? How do lessons from cybersecurity relate to biological bad actors?

This talk brings two special guests to ASU.  University of Michigan’s J. Alex Halderman, professor of computer science and engineering will discuss Cybersecurity and U.S. Elections, and Princeton’s Andrea Graham, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, will present Mammalian Immunology Systems.

The event is open to the public, and any ASU students or staff who are interested in cybersecurity are urged to attend.
