Join Google's Chief Internet Evangelist Vint Cerf in a wide ranging interactive plenary. A recipient of the U.S. National Medal of Technology, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Alan M. Turing award (sometimes called the "Nobel Prize of Computer Science"), and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Dr. Cerf is widely known as one of the "Fathers of the Internet" for co-designing TCP/IP protocols and basic Internet architecture during his time in the ARPANET project.
More recently, in addition to his responsibilities as VP and Chief Internet Evangelist at Google, he has been working on the development of an Interplanetary Internet with NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab and advocating for the introduction of a "digital vellum" system to preserve online content.
