Discussion article for the meetup : Meet Up: Less Wrong Israel Meetup (Tel Aviv): Uses of Cryptography

WHEN: 30 January 2014 08:00:00PM (+0200)

WHERE: 7 begin ramat gan

We're going to have a meetup on Thursday, Jan 30th at VisionMap's offices, Gibor Sport House, 15th floor, 7 Menachem Begin st., Ramat-Gan.

Our program is:

20:00-20:15: Assembly

20:15-21:00: Main Talk

21:00-22:00: Dinner & Discussion

22:00-23:00: Rump Session (minitalks)

23:00-: End of official programming

Main Talk: Uses of Cryptography / Daniel Armak

How can you use Cryptography as a tool? Most conversations about cryptography deal with the available crypto primitives. This talk will instead focus on what you can do with them and describe the most important and/or interesting things that have been built using crypto as a tool. (The primitives will be briefly described).

The talk will be accessible to people without knowledge of the math behind cryptography.

Backup Talk: TBA

Rump Session: Each participant will give a 4-minute talk (+3 minute encore if we applaud hard enough). Giving a talk isn't mandatory, but it's highly recommended. Not confident that what you have to say is relevant to our interests? Unsure about your public speaking skills? Doesn't matter - in the rump session, anything goes. - Note, you don't have to prepare a talk to come! Speaking at the rump session is completely only if you want to.
