Thursday, April 25th An Invisible Woman: The Inside Story Behind the Microelectronic Computing Revolution in Silicon Valley

Dr. Lynn Conway, Professor of EECS Emerita, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor,  joins a panel of faculty, staff, and students for a live stream Q&A following her seminar presentation: An Invisible Woman: The Inside Story Behind the Microelectronic Computing Revolution in Silicon Valley

In 2015, US CTO Megan Smith raised profound questions about women’s contributions in science, engineering and math being erased from history. In this talk we explore a case study of such erasure and surface a very counter-intuitive conjecture about the underlying causes and effects (i.e., the “ConwayEffect”).

This event will be streamed live. We invite you to submit questions in advance and log on to join us remotely for the discussion.
