Vinton Cerf is considered by many as the father of the Internet. He was the founding president of the Internet Society. With the Internet, Vinton Cerf completely revolutionized information transmission processes, allowing the unrestricted flow of information around the world. With great foresight, he designed and established the protocols, the interconnection technology and the accessibility services that made possible something that several years before was a utopia. Together with Lawrence Roberts, Robert Kahn and Tim Berners-Lee, his work in this sense represents progress that serves humanity. With a degree in mathematics and computer science from Stanford University, he later received his PhD in computer science from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
