On April 5, the National Science and Technology Medals Foundation, in partnership with the USPTO, will host An Evening With Vint Cerf at the Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies. Best known as a co-father of the internet, Dr. Cerf co-designed TCP/IP protocols and the architecture of the internet. In 1997, Dr. Cerf received the National Medal of Technology from President Clinton in recognition of this world-changing contribution.
Brian Fung, a technology reporter for The Washington Post, will interview Dr. Cerf about his experiences as a student, innovator, and now as an advocate for a free and open internet. The audience will have the opportunity to ask Dr. Cerf questions following the interview. The program will conclude with a short reception for all.
