Show Notes

As a chief computer architect at Hewlett-Packard in the 1980s, Ruby Lee was a leader in changing the way computers are built, simplifying their core instructions so they could do more. And she revolutionized the way computers use multimedia. If you’ve watched a video or streamed music on your computer or smart phone, Ruby had a lot to do with making that possible. In more recent years here at Princeton, her research has focused on security in computer architecture without sacrificing performance, which is what we’ll talk about today. And she’ll discuss why, even though it’s possible to build more secure devices, the marketplace doesn’t demand it. Ruby Lee is the Forest G. Hamrick Professor in Engineering, and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
