Heidelberg Laureate Forum: a lecture with Barbara Liskov

I will re-post the video from Heidelberg Laureate Forum from last 23rd September 2016, featuring the Computer Science pioneer Dr. Barbara Liskov.

Elsewhere you can find plenty of information about the career and achievements of Dr. Liskov, but this post just took the fruition of an afternoon of thinking about the History of Computer Science by an important figure in its most relevant developments – with the added feature of being a rare female protagonist in those developments, a point rightly mentioned in the talk -; her role in the development of Object-oriented programming, and the current interesting issues about the relationship between correct and proper Software Engineering and the resurgent field of Artificial Intelligence.

Without further explanations, please enjoy this video:
