Delegating Computation

Lecture 1: Delegating Computation I
Lecture 2: Delegating Computation II

This series of talks was part of the Cryptography Boot Camp. Videos for each talk area available through the links above.

Speaker: Yael Kalai, Microsoft Research New England

With cloud computing, computations and data are increasingly being delegated to powerful remote servers. This brings new computational challenges: How do we ensure privacy? How do we guarantee that computations are performed correctly? This talk focuses on the latter question. We present a method for efficiently guaranteeing the integrity of arbitrary computations. Our method is based on a connection to "no-signaling strategies" from quantum physics.

Based on joint work with Ran Raz and Ron Rothblum.
