    Internet pioneer, Robert E. Kahn inaugurates the Robert Kahn and Patrice Lyons Lecture Series

    Known as one of the “Fathers of the Internet,” Dr. Robert E. Kahn  (BEE 1960)  is the co-inventor of the TCP/IP protocols and was responsible for originating DARPA’s Internet program.  Dr. Kahn conceived the idea of open-architecture networking and coined the term National Information Infrastructure (NII) in the mid 1980s, which later became known as the Information Super Highway. For the inaugural lecture of the Robert Kahn and Patrice Lyons Lecture Series, Dr. Kahn will discuss emerging futures of the internet.

    This talk is made possible thanks to a generous gift from Robert E. Kahn and Patrice Lyons. The Internet: past, present, future is organized by the Grove School of Engineering, the Center for Algorithms & Interactive Scientific Software, and the Alumni Association of The City College of New York.
