ANU congratulates Boyer Lecturer as University reimagines engineering and computer science for 21st century
Through reimagining engineering and computing, we want to attract a diverse cohort of leaders who bring varied backgrounds, areas of expertise and aspirations to tackle some of the biggest challenges of our age.
Dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science at The Australian National University (ANU), Professor Elanor Huntington, congratulates Professor Genevieve Bell on delivering this year’s ABC Boyer Lectures, as the College leads a new project to reimagine engineering and computer science fit for the 21st century.
Professor Bell - a cultural anthropologist and the inaugural Director of the new Autonomy, Agency and Assurance Institute, known as the 3A Institute, co-founded with CSIRO’s Data61, Australia’s largest data innovation network - will deliver her final Boyer lecture on Saturday 21 October 2017.
Professor Huntington is working to reimagine the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) as it leads the way in bringing together people, technological systems and science to resolve highly complex global societal challenges.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian Schmidt AC asked Professor Huntington to lead the reimagination project as part of the University’s commitment to help solve the most pressing problems facing the world.
"We are looking at new ways to see traditional engineering and computer disciplines and seeking people with the right expertise, divergent thinking, motivation and confidence to ’find’ and resolve critical societal issues using their technological expertise," said Professor Huntington, Dean of CECS since 2014.
"The work of Genevieve Bell, ANU Professor and Director of the recently announced 3A Institute, is an excellent example of this idea.
"The 3A institute is setting about inventing the next engineering and technological discipline - one that will bring together at least computing, control engineering, design, anthropology, business and technology."
The ABC chose Professor Bell to give her Boyer Lectures - ’Fast, Smart and Connected: What is it to be human, and Australian, in a digital world?’ - with the series being known for presenting ideas on major social, scientific or cultural issues.
Professor Bell is the second youngest woman to participate in the Boyer Lectures, the only Boyer lecturer from a tech industry background and the first ANU academic to take part since 1986.
"Professor Bell’s Boyer Lectures really help highlight how significant these issues are, and how creatively we are reimagining engineering and computing at the ANU," Professor Huntington said.
"CECS is distinctive, energetic, inclusive, world-leading and attracts the best people in engineering and computing - the brightest and most creative minds - from around Australia and internationally.
"Through reimagining engineering and computing, we want to attract a diverse cohort of leaders who bring varied backgrounds, areas of expertise and aspirations to tackle some of the biggest challenges of our age."
