3月22日下午4:00-5:30,美国斯坦福大学(SLAC Stanford University,USA)Bebo White教授应邀在广州大学行政西楼前座428会议室给计算机学院的师生做了题为”Thoughts on the Interaction of IOT and DLT in a Future Connected World”的学术报告。会议由计算机学院副院长王国军教授主持。
报告中Bebo White教授首先就什么是物联网做了全面的阐述。近年来,物联网设备不断增多,整个世界正在逐渐连为一体,但是由于物联网本身的中心化结构,使得其在安全方面难以得到保证。然后,Bebo White教授带领我们从新的视角去领略区块链技术,撇开固有的思想,将区块链技术和货币世界分离开来,利用其去中心化的思想,为物联网提供一种新的分布式框架。报告结束后,Bebo White教授与王国军教授及在场的博士生和硕士生进行了热烈的讨论,就IOT的去中心化结构、区块链如何保证IOT设备可信通信等多个问题做了讨论,让在场的师生都获益良多。

Bebo White (Distinguished Speaker, ACM) is currently a Departmental Associate (Emeritus Professor) at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, the basic energy science and high-energy physics laboratory operated by Stanford University. Prior to retirement he worked at SLAC as a Computational Physicist and Senior Computing Information Systems Analyst. He is also a Visiting Professor of Computer Science at the University of Hong Kong. While his initial responsibilities at SLAC were in computational physics, in recent years Professor White's work has been dominated by his involvement with World Wide Web technology. He first became involved with WWW development while on sabbatical at CERN in 1989 and was instrumental in establishing the first non-European Web site at SLAC in 1991. Professor White has lectured and spoken internationally to academic and commercial audiences. He is the author of eight books and over one hundred journal/proceedings articles. In addition, he has been actively involved with the planning and execution of five major international conference series: The International World Wide Web Conference, The International Conference on Web Engineering, The IADIS International Conference on WWW/Internet, The International Conference on ICT in Teaching and Learning, and The Web Science Conference. His current research interests include The Internet of Things, Cybercurrencies/Bitcoin and Blockchain, The Future of User Interaction Design, and Social Media in Education.
