Chuck Easttom
2020–2022 Distinguished Speaker

Biography

Dr. Chuck Easttom is the author of 29 books, including several on computer security, forensics, and cryptography. His books are used at over 60 universities. He has also authored scientific papers on digital forensics, cyber warfare, cryptography, and applied mathematics. He is an inventor with 17 computer science patents. He holds a Doctor of Science in cyber security (dissertation topic: a study of lattice-based cryptographic algorithms for post quantum computing) and three master’s degrees (one in applied computer science, one in education, and one in systems engineering). He is currently working on a second doctorate in a bit of a different field: bioengineering and nanotechnology (dissertation topic “The effects of nonlinear dynamics on nanotechnology and bioengineering”), due to complete in spring 2020. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and ACM (Association of Computing Machinery), and a member of IACR (International Association of Cryptological Research) and INCOSE (International Council on Systems Engineering). He is also a Distinguished Speaker of the ACM and a frequent speaker at conferences. He is a reviewer for six scientific journals including IEEE Open Access and the Editor in Chief for the American Journal of Science and Engineering. He has taught in a variety of settings and is current an adjunct professor for University of Dallas and Georgetown University. Dr. Easttom has also been active in IEEE standards groups.

Presentations

The impact of Emergence, Nonlinear Dynamics, and Chaos Theory on Engineering

This talk first provides an overview of nonlinear dynamics and emergence, as well as their relationship to engineering. Then methods for mathematically modeling both nonlinear dynamics and emergence are covered. The basic mathematics beginning with Lorenz equations and moving on to current advances in modeling and predicting emergences are presented. Finally, the relationship of these topics to engineering, particularly failure analysis, is covered. Attendees will gain a general understanding of the current state of research coupled with insight into recent trends.

Current Status of Quantum Computing

This talk begins with a brief overview of quantum computing, including essential concepts and historical milestones. Then current research is discussed. This includes work in quantum key distribution, quantum proof cryptography, and quantum information. The current status of developments in quantum computing are covered. This means this talk is updated every time it is given.
