Summer research opportunity for undergraduates: Big data analytics

The NSF REU program at Oklahoma State University (OSU) is a ten-week summer program for undergraduate students. Participants in the program will contribute to research projects in big data analytics, including computer vision, visualization, social media data analytics, anonymity, and machine learning. Field trips, talks by external speakers, and workshops are included.


  • Undergraduate students from 2-year and 4-year colleges
  • U.S. citizen or permanent resident


Real world security: From theory to practice and back again

Abstract: The security of any system relies on models and assumptions that attempt to capture potential adversarial behavior. Unfortunately, when faced with real world adversaries, these assumptions often become flaky, inaccurate or even completely incorrect. In this talk, I will show several examples of this gap between theoretical and real-world security. First, I will present Spectre and Meltdown, two microarchitectural attacks that read protected OS kernel memory by exploiting speculative execution, a performance optimization typically performed by all modern CPUs.

Multiple openings: full-time and internships

At HOVER ( we are building the future of property data with a platform that lets anyone generate accurate 3D buildings by simply taking a few photos with their smartphone.

HOVER is backed by a number of investors including: Google Ventures, Home Depot, and Standard Industries.

We are growing quickly and hiring for a number of roles spanning the spectrum of positions. We are looking to hire undergraduates and/or graduate students, for both full-time positions and internships.

Job Responsibilities:

Hacking the Employee Experience with Mobile AR

Liberty Mutual Insurance strives to innovate in spaces that not only support its mission of helping people live safer more secure lives, but also to innovate employees’ experiences within the workplace.

Harnessing Augmented Reality and real-time location tracking using Bluetooth beacons, come learn how three UW-Madison alumni at Liberty Mutual worked together to take first place at their company’s hackathon by building an app that allows their agile employees to reserve a flex space almost instantly.


AccessComputing -- Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates

Now is the time to apply for an AccessComputing Summer REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates). Through an REU experience, students are directly involved in computing research in a university. This allows students who are considering graduate school to learn more about the research process and makes them more competitive applicants for graduate school.  The AccessComputing REU program places computing students with disabilities in computing research projects at colleges and universities. Most often, we work with students to locate research opportunities in their own communities.

Pushing Secure Multi-Party Computation to Reality

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
