Vinton Cerf

  • The ideal Internet
  • Geist Heidelberg, Lecture

How do we guarantee digital integrity in the future? What steps do we need to take to preserve the utility, but also the integrity, of the Internet on a multilateral level and with respect to a wide range of stakeholders? And at the same time, how can we increase the security of users and the institutions that rely on the Internet? Vinton Cerf talks about his concern for privacy in the future.

Dr. Vinton G. Cerf is considered one of the “Fathers of the Internet.” In 2004, he received the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the highest honor in the field of computer science. He is a guest at the DAI as part of his participation in the 9th Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), an international network meeting where 200 highly talented young scientists from mathematics and computer science meet the best in their field every year.
