Title: Advanced Cryptography: Promise, Progress, and Challenges

Abstract: Dr. Shai Halevi will discuss "advanced cryptography", including things like secure multi-party computation, homomorphic encryption, zero knowledge, and the like. He will illustrate application domains where these tools can make a crucial difference, survey the great progress in recent years toward making them efficient, and point out challenges in making them generally usable.

Bio: Dr. Shai Halevi is a research fellow at the Algorand Foundation. He obtained his PhD from MIT in 1997, and his work since then is focused on advanced cryptographic techniques such as homomorphic encryption, cryptographic code obfuscation, and secure computation. Shai is a fellow and a vice president of the IACR, and the recipient of the 2017 ACM-SIGSAC Outstanding Innovation Award and several best-paper awards. Shai also wrote the HElib library for homomorphic encryption.
