People are often surprised that public key cryptography was invented within Stanfordâ??s EE department, not the Computer Science department.? Yet my background in Information Theory played a key role in that advance.? This talk reviews my professional odyssey, from research in more traditional information theory to cryptography to estimating the odds that civilization will survive another century.? The unifying theme is the role that my training in information theory played in guiding that journey.
