Meet the Shannon Lecturer

We invite you to join us for a conversation with this year’s Claude E. Shannon Award recipient Alon Orlitsky. Shortly before the symposium starts, we will post online our Shannon Lecturer Interview, where our hosts Olgica Milenkovic and Jayadev Acharya ask Alon about his journey from childhood through graduate school, to the stories behind his biggest discoveries and contributions to information theory, statistical modeling, and machine learning.

Following the Shannon Lecture on Tuesday, July 20th, Onur Günlü will moderate a live Q&A session with Alon. To facilitate the online event, we ask you to register at this link, preferably by July 16th, though a later registration might be possible.
