About the Speaker

Dr. John Barrie is the co-founder, president and CEO of iParadigms and Turnitin. In 1996 Dr. Barrie and four colleagues set out to create a new model for the protection of written work from misappropriation on the Internet. Together they built the technology behind Turnitin.com, which is now used by institutions in more than 100 countries to check for plagiarism. He will discuss the history behind the creation of Turnitin and discuss the future of these technologies as digital technology continues to evolve.

Dr. Barrie completed his undergraduate studies in Rhetoric and Neurobiology and a Ph.D in Biophysics, both at the University of California, Berkeley. (for more information visit http://turnitin.com/static/index.html)
