Dorothie & Martin Hellman: “Peace, True Love…. and Cryptography” | Talks at Google

Turing Award winner Martin Hellman, along with his wife Dorothie, discuss their book, “A New Map for Relationships: Creating True Love at Home & Peace on the Planet,” and how they went from being madly in love at first, to heading for divorce, then madly in love again–explaining how the same lessons they had to learn in their marriage can help avert worldwide catastrophes such as global warming and nuclear war.

Former US Ambassador to Afghanistan Karl Eikenberry has referred to the Hellman’s work as, “the most thoughtful, unique, and fascinating book I have ever read on personal and international diplomacy.” Stories from Marty’s work in cryptography help illustrate ethical dilemmas and the importance of “getting curious, not furious.”

Dorothie Hellman worked as a CPA at Touche Ross, later becoming a full-time volunteer and VP for Financial Support at the Beyond War Foundation from 1982-87. Since then, she has devoted her life to studying how to improve the human condition.

Martin Hellman is best known for his invention, with Diffie and Merkle, of public key cryptography, to enable secure Internet transactions. He currently works on reducing existential risks posed by technology, with an emphasis on nuclear weapons. He is Professor Emeritus of EE at Stanford University, and was awarded the Turing Award in 2015.
