We are really looking forward to starting up regular episodes again. The first episode of the second season will be released next week, on September 15th. Seth will be interviewing Azer Bestavros.
Azer Bestavros is the Inaugural Associate Provost for Computing and Data Sciences at Boston University and the William Fairfield Warren Distinguished Professor in the Computer Science Department, which he joined in 1991 and chaired from 2000 to 2007. He is also the Founding Director of the Hariri Institute for Computing. As he will share in this interview, Azer has worked on several major projects involving both public and private entities, looking at mathematical methods for analyzing data without compromising the privacy or the security of the data being examined.
Not only that, but Azer's work served as a major inspiration for this podcast. His insight and experience were invaluable and getting conversations like these off the ground. We hope you will join us next week!
