Computer scientists in the spotlight on the Torrey Pines Mesa

Several Jacobs School computer scientists and their work are highlighted in a UT San Diego story about the history of the scientific institutions on the Torrey Pines Mesa.

Under the major science accomplishments section:

•Computer scientist Kenneth Bowles and his students modified the Pascal programming language, allowing a program to be moved around from machine to machine, a technique now widely used to build mobile applications.

 •George Varghese and Stefan Savage developed the first automated method for automatically identifying worm and virus attacks across the Internet and other high-speed networks almost as soon as the outbreaks occur. Cisco acquired the technology.
We also spotted computer scientists Ryan Kastner and Mia Minnes in the video accompanying the story:
