    Presentation of Strowger Award for Innovation in Communication

The ARPANET project was initiated fifty years ago and quickly changed the landscape of computing and networks. ARPANET demonstrated that networking was feasible, affordable and desirable, and it created insatiable desire for connection encompassing all segments of society and all regions of the globe. The ARPANET was the seedling for today’s Internet. In this talk, Dr. Crocker will illustrate what the creators of the early Internet saw at the beginning and will discuss the challenges facing us now and in the future.

Dr. Steve Crocker was there for the birth of the Internet. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, he was part of the group that developed the protocols for the foundation of today's Internet. Dr. Crocker remains optimistic about the thousands of positive uses of the Internet. He doesn't think that we have even come close to maximizing its potential. However, he also cautions that security breaches remain a problem the need to be addressed with some urgency. Dr. Crocker also is extremely optimistic about the uses of Artificial Intelligence to enhance our way of living – especially in medical fields. He, however, does not want us to turn our lives over to being totally dominated by algorithms of someone else. For his lifetime work, Dr. Crocker has been admitted to the Internet Hall of Fame.

ITS at Ohio U added 4 new photos — with Andy Snow and 8 others.

The ITS School is indebted to ITS alums Bryan Ireton '90 and Juan Echeverry '05, current employees of Accenture, for their continued support of the Accenture Challenge. ITS alums working at Accenture, a technology-consulting firm, created the challenge in 2008, which gives students the chance to solve real-world problems using the skills they’ve learned in their studies. Although they no longer work for Accenture, ITS alums Ron Minto '98 and Neil Okonak '02 traveled to the OU campus to once again be involved in the Challenge. Thank you!
