    4:00pm to 5:00pm
    CS 1240
    Sanjam Garg
    University of California-Berkeley

    Abstract: In this talk, I will describe new ideas leading to a construction of identity-based encryption based on the hardness of the (Computational) Diffie-Hellman Problem (without using groups with pairings). This construction achieves the standard notion of identity-based encryption as considered by Boneh and Franklin [CRYPTO 2001]. The presented construction bypasses known impossibility results using garbled circuits that make a non-black-box use of the underlying cryptographic primitives. (Based on joint work with Nico Döttling)

    With the rise of large-scale digitization efforts over the past ten years (such as those by Google Books, the HathiTrust, and the Internet Archive), we now have access to large textual datasets preserving our cultural record in the form of printed books. These text collections have driven research at the intersection of computational methods and the humanities, exploiting advances made over past thirty years in natural language processing and machine learning.

    In this talk, I'll outline some of the opportunities this data presents for research in "distant reading" (... Read More

    Interviewing can be stressful. Come practice your interview skills with local

    practice with a technical interview and feedback on your resume. Bring at
    least three copies of a current resume. Volunteers will give you feedback on
    your resume as well as on your interview.

    environment. Please no recruiters.

    CS 1240
    Moshe Y. Vardi
    Rice University

    Mathematical logic was developed in an effort to provide formal foundations
    for mathematics. In this quest, which ultimately failed, logic begat
    computer science, yielding both computers and theoretical computer science.
    But then logic turned out to be a disappointment as foundations for
    computer science, as almost all decision problems in logic are either
    unsolvable or intractable. Starting from the mid 1970s, however, there
    has been a quiet revolution in logic in computer science, and problems that
    are theoretically undecidable or intractable... Read More
