Recently his has focused on hash functions unifying theory and practice. He has received a large no. of academic awards, i.a. ACM Fellow and, most recently, co-winner of the 2021 Fulkerson Prize  

    Title of presentation: 

    Algorithms can dramatically increase efficiency and save energy and resources  

    Abstract of presentation: 

    In this talk, I will introduce you briefly to the theory of algorithms and show examples of industrial use and applications, e.g. how it is possible to increase the efficiency of a streaming service, and the potential for reducing the energy consumption of computer servers.

      Algorithms can dramatically increase efficiency and save energy and resources. With three scientific talks we will demonstrate how algorithms can push the limits for computing in theory as well as in practice, when adopted in industrial applications.
