Distinguished Lecturer, Jason Rupe

Presented August 28, 2020

Abstract: Distributed ledger technologies (DLT) like blockchain are complex systems, often at large network scale, but simple to understand. In the context of reliability, they deserve the attention of reliability experts because of their value toward systems and information reliability, and because of their security and reliability vulnerabilities. In this talk, we will review and discuss DLT and the reliability concerns within and around it. 

Lecturer Bio: Jason got his Ph.D. modeling large scale systems and networks for performance and reliability. He has held titles including senior technical staff and director at USWEST, Qwest, Polar Star Consulting, and Tenica. He was the Managing Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Reliability and has several IEEE roles currently including Denver Section Chair, VP Conferences for Reliability Society, and co-chair of IEEE Blockchain initiative.
