Digital Vellum

Friday, 13 February 2015: 10:00 AM-11:30 AM
Room 210CD (San Jose Convention Center)
Vinton Cerf, Google Inc., Reston, VA
Vinton Cerf’s talk discusses the desirable properties of a "Digital Vellum" — a system that is capable of preserving the meaning of the digital objects we create over periods of hundreds to thousands of years. This is not about preserving bits, It is about preserving meaning, much like the Rosetta Stone. Information Centric Networking may provide an essential element to implement a Digital Vellum. This long-term thinking will serve as a foundation and context for exploring ICNs in more detail.
