<div>"Secure computation" allows a group of parties to carry out a computation on their combined private inputs, and learn only the outcome of the computation. This idea encompasses a wide range of problems such as elections, auctions, private data mining, zero-knowledge proofs; and it has led to many beautiful results in cryptography since its inception 30 years ago. In this talk, I will introduce some main concepts from secure computation and describe recent work aimed at making secure computation protocols more realistic and practical.</div>
