Robert Kahn, one of the architects of the internet, will have what promises to be a fascinating conversation with artificial intelligence guru Ed Feigenbaum Jan. 9 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif.

Kahn is CEO and president of the Corporation for National Research Initiatives. Kahn and Vinton Cerf invented the TCP/IP protocol, the technology that underpins the transmission of information on the Internet.

Kahn, who received his Ph.D. from Princeton in 1964, is part of Princeton’s luminous legacy in the field of computer science and in the development of the Internet. Alan Turing, Alonzo Church and John von Neumann all spent time at Princeton. Recent Internet innovators who are Princeton Engineering undergraduates include Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, and Eric Schmidt, chairman and CEO of Google, who was just named CEO of the Year by Investors Business Daily.
