  • Monday, February 19, 2018 -
    4:00pm to 5:00pm
    CS 1240
    Monia Ghobadi
    Microsoft Research Mobility and Networking

    Abstract:
    Fiber optic cables are the workhorses of today's Internet services. They are an expensive resource acquired by organizations with significant monetary investment. Their importance has driven a conservative deployment approach with redundancy baked into multiple layers of the network with the assumption that links have a constant reliability status and operate at a fixed capacity. In this talk, I will take an unconventional approach and argue that link failures should not be always considered as binary events enabling the foundation of a model of networks with links...

    4:00pm to 5:00pm
    CS 1240
    Elena Glassman
    UC-Berkeley

    Abstract
    Programming—the means by which we tell computers what to do—has changed a lot over time. Programming today means programming alongside hundreds of fellow students, thousands of fellow professional software engineers at a particular company, or millions of fellow developers in the open-source community sharing their code online. In this talk, I will describe several interactive systems I have built that exploit the structure within large volumes of peer-produced code to help individual programmers learn how to write more correct, readable code.

    These systems are made... Read More

    4:00pm to 5:00pm
    CS 1240
    Paul Pearce
    UC-Berkeley

    Abstract:

    The value and power mediated by the global, interconnected systems of today’s
    Internet attract adversaries who seek to exploit these systems for economic,
    political or social gain. Yet, the underlying complexity of Internet
    infrastructure, the layering of its services, and the indirect nature of its
    business relationships can make it challenging to identify even the existence
    of adversaries manipulating systems for their benefit.

    In this talk I present systems and methods to uncover and explore two such
    large-scale adversarial... Read More

  • Monday, February 26, 2018 -
    4:00pm to 5:00pm
    CS 1240
    Huaishu Peng
    Cornell University

    Abstract: 3D printing technology has been widely applied to produce well-designed objects. There is a hope to make both the modeling process and printing outputs more interactive, so that designers can get in-situ tangible feedback to fabricate objects with rich functionalities. To date, however, knowledge accumulated to realize this hope remains limited. In this talk, I will present two lines of research. The first line of work aims at facilitating an interactive process of fabrication. I demonstrate novel interactive fabrication systems that allow the designer to create 3D models in AR... Read More

  • Tuesday, February 27, 2018 -
    4:00pm to 5:00pm
    Computer Sciences 1240
    Junier Oliva
    Carnegie Mellon University

    A great deal of attention has been applied to studying new and better ways to perform learning tasks involving static finite vectors. Indeed, over the past century the fields of statistics and machine learning have amassed a vast understanding of various learning tasks like clustering, classification, and regression using simple real valued vectors. However, we do not live in a world of simple objects. From the contact lists we keep, the sound waves we hear, and the distribution of cells we have, complex objects such as sets, distributions, sequences, and functions are all around us.... Read More

  • Monday, March 5, 2018 -
    4:00pm to 5:00pm
    CS 1240
    Radhika Mittal
    UC-Berkeley

    Abstract: There have been many recent proposals to change the network infrastructure in order to meet different performance objectives. These changes are often difficult to deploy, either requiring specialized network switching hardware or greatly complicating network management. Rather than continuing to add new features to the network in an ad-hoc manner, in this talk, I will present a principled approach for meeting different performance objectives, that leads to a more stable network infrastructure. This approach is based on the following two questions: First, can we avoid making... Read More

    4:00pm to 5:00pm
    CS 1240
    Xiao Wang
    University of Maryland

    Abstract:
    Secure multi-party computation (MPC) is a powerful cryptographic tool
    that allows users to perform privacy-preserving computations on their
    collective data, without revealing anything about their data to each
    other. For many decades MPC was considered infeasible, but recent
    progress has made MPC significantly more practical to the point where
    it is attracting interest from government agencies as well as start-up
    companies.

    I will survey the field of MPC, and then discuss my research aimed at
    making this technique more... Read More

    CS 1240
    Pengyu Zhang
    Stanford University

    Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices serve as gateways connecting the digital world to the physical world. Although we already have powerful tools to understand various data in the digital world, IoT devices are currently insufficient for capturing and processing large amounts of physical world data. In this talk, I will present two systems we built to address this problem. I will first present a low-power backscatter radio system designed for IoT. Our radio consumes 100~10x less power compared to existing WiFi radios. It does so by reflecting existing WiFi traffic in the air while embedding... Read More

    Codecinella Panelists
    TBA

    This talk is designed to help undergraduate female computer science majors
    imagine a career in Computer Sciences and Information Technology. Listen to a panel
    of experts -- real Madison women who are working in technology -- tell their personal stories.

    You will learn: Why did they enter the their field? What do they like and dislike about it? How did they get to where they are now?

    Share your ideas and ask questions, such as: How did your education prepare you for your career? What do you wish you had known when you were still in school? Did you have any... Read More
