One Laptop per Child (OLPC) project is a non-profit organization aiming to redefine learning and education for the world's children, by providing each child with a specially developed, innovative, and low-cost laptop. The speaker, Ivan Krstic, will introduce the background, motivation, and goals of the initiative, as well as the engineering and educational challenges it faces. Designed to be small and light, yet this laptop ("XO") is rugged enough to withstand harsh environments and the power it consumes is less than a tenth of standard laptops. Ivan Krstic is a software architect and researcher currently on leave from Harvard University. He is the director of security and information architecture at the One Laptop per Child project.
