Hi All, I'd like to welcome everyone back for the spring quarter and to our first Change Seminar tomorrow. As usual, Change will be held at 12pm in CSE 203.
This week Richard Anderson will be giving an update on the work Digital Financial Services <http://dfs.cs.washington.edu/> group has been doing over the last year. *What: *An update on the work of the UW Digital Financial Services Research Group *Who: *Richard Anderson *When: *12pm Tuesday March 28 in CSE 203 *Abstract* In 2016, we established the Digital Financial Services Research Group at University of Washington to investigate the technological challenges in improving access to financial services for the world’s poor and to promote a global research community at the intersection of Computing for Development and Financial Services. The technological challenges for financial services include managing digital identities, ease of use of proximity payments, awareness and understanding of digital services, robustness of infrastructure, and protecting services from fraud and cyber-attacks. In this talk, I will give an update on the accomplishments in the first year of the project in the areas of computer security, consumer education, and the Android device eco-system, introduce the UW-Pesa demo lab, and talk about the founding of a parallel research group at Information Technology University (ITU) in Lahore, Pakistan. I will also identify a number of technology areas that are ripe for exploration to support this area of work.
