Presents Dr. Robert S. Fish
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers

"Advancing Technology for Humanity" is the motto of the IEEE, which is the world’s largest technical professional association for the advancement of technology.   This talk introduces IEEE and some of the recent initiatives within its societies and councils with a special emphasis on the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA).  The IEEE-SA publishes some the world’s most widely-used electro-technical standards, including the 802.3 (Ethernet) and 802.11 (WiFi) networking standards.  One recent area of concern involves standards for ethical design in the context of recent developments in Artificial Intelligence.

Robert S. Fish (SMIEEE) received his Ph.D. from Stanford University.  Currently, he is President of NETovations Group, LLC, a consulting company specializing in networking technology innovation.  He is also on the faculty of the Computer Science Department of Princeton University.   Previously, he was Chief Product Officer and Senior Vice President of Operations at Mformation Technologies, Inc. creating software for mobile device management.  From 1997 through 2006, Dr. Fish was Vice President and Managing Director of the Panasonic Digital Networking Laboratories with labs in Princeton, San Jose, Santa Barbara, and San Diego which invented and promoted the standardization of technologies for embedding networking into consumer devices. Prior to that, Rob was Executive Director of Multimedia Communications Research at Bellcore after starting his career at Bell Laboratories.  His department created some of the US's earliest broadband video communications and residential broadband networking trials.  He holds 17 patents and has numerous publications.
