Title: A Conversation with Juris Hartmanis
Authors: Hartmanis, Juris
Keywords: Juris Hartmanis
Computer Science
Cornell University
Issue Date: 31-Mar-2010
Publisher: Internet-First University Press
Abstract: Juris Hartmanis is video taped in a far-reaching conversation (70 minutes) with colleague David Gries. They discuss Hartmanis’ childhood and family background and his immigration to the United States. Next they trace his extraordinary career at the GE Research Laboratory, where he collaborated with Richard Stearns on pioneering research that eventually was recognized by ACM’s prestigious, highest honor – the Turing Award. After having served earlier as an Instructor in Cornell’s Mathematics Department, Juris returned to Cornell as a full professor and the founding chair of a new department of Computer Science. This Department was embedded in two colleges, Engineering and Arts and Sciences. Cornell was among the first Universities to establish a Department of Computer Science. His pioneering work on computational complexity blossomed into a new field and under his leadership the Computer Science department matured into a robust, national leader with a strong theoretical emphasis. After a successful stint at the National Science Foundation leading the transition of the academic research network NSFnet to become the Internet, he returned to Cornell. At Cornell he continues an active program of research and maintains a leadership role in developing information technologies that have become a ubiquitous element across the entire Cornell academic scene.
