Mark D. Hill, professor and chair of the UW-Madison Department of Computer Sciences, will outline the department’s past, present and future. Joining Hill for a panel discussion will be James Laudon, engineering director of the Madison office of Google; Mike Epley, a software developer at Epic since 2010; Suman Banerjee, a Comp Sci professor and a past winner of the Governor’s Business Plan Contest with WiRover; and James Crawford of 4490 Ventures.
Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council, will moderate as the panelists discuss the department’s nationally ranked work, recent gifts from major companies and efforts to expand Wisconsin’s pipeline of students with expertise in computer sciences.
“The Comp Sci program at UW-Madison is nationally ranked for a reason: It has produced cutting-edge innovation for decades, thousands of talented graduates and provided strong value for businesses in Wisconsin and beyond,” Still said.
