Engineering Lecture | How Computer Science Informs Modern Auction Design

Over the last twenty years, computer science has relied on concepts borrowed from game theory and economics to reason about applications ranging from internet routing to real-time auctions for online advertising. More recently, ideas have increasingly flowed in the opposite direction, with concepts and techniques from computer science beginning to influence economic theory and practice. In this lecture, Tim Roughgarden will illustrate this point with a detailed case study of the 2016-2017 Federal Communications Commission incentive auction for repurposing wireless spectrum. Roughgarden is a Professor in the Computer Science Department at Columbia University. He works on the boundary of computer science and economics, and on the design, analysis, applications, and limitations of algorithms.

Engineering Lecture with Professor Elham Azizi

Hear from Elham Azizi, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Herbert and Florence Irving Assistant Professor of Cancer Data Research. Elham Azizi's multidisciplinary research utilizes novel machine learning techniques and cutting-edge genomic technologies to study the composition and circuitry of cells in tumors.

A Conversation with Professor Robert McCaughey on the History of Columbia Engineering

Members of the Class of 1971 Reunion Committee invite alumni of all classes to join a special session with Robert McCaughey, Emeritus Professor of History at Barnard College and author of A Lever Long Enough, on the history of Columbia Engineering since 1864. Professor McCaughey will lead a discussion moderated by Michael Abramowitz ’71 on the book's genesis, and then open up the discussion to participants for Q&A. 

Engineering Presentation and Fireside Chat with Professor Alfred Aho

Alfred Aho, Lawrence Gussman Professor Emeritus of Computer Science, and 2020 Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) A.M. Turing Award winner, presents briefly and has a conversation with Dean Mary Boyce.
