CS Department Seminar: Prof. Alejandro Russo, Chalmers University of Technology

December 6, 2013

Title: Towards synthesizing sound information-flow systemsSpeaker: Prof. Alejandro Russo, Chalmers University of TechnologyDate: December 6th, 2013 at 3:00pmLocation: Babbio Center 310

Abstract:Information-flow security has recently become relevant to preserve confidentiality of data in popular platforms (e.g. mobile platforms, web services, etc.). A great series of work has been devoted to dynamically control information-flow control using programming language semantics. Sometimes, extending such systems to add new language construct is not trivial, or worse, it might be error prone. In this light, we present the first steps towards ...read more

CS Department Seminar: Prof. Justin Cappos, NYU-Poly

December 2, 2013

Title: NetCheck: Network Diagnoses from Blackbox TracesSpeaker: Prof. Justin Cappos, NYU-PolyDate: December 2nd, 2013 at 2:00pmLocation: Babbio Center 221

Abstract:This talk introduces NetCheck, a tool to diagnose network problems in large and complex applications. NetCheck uses traces from existing blackbox tracing mechanisms, such as strace, to diagnosis network problems in real world applications. NetCheck can diagnose faults without any specific information about the underlying network or application. NetCheck does this by (1) totally ordering the distributed set of input traces, and by (2) utilizing a network model to identify ...read more

CS Department Seminar: Prof. Stefano Zanero, Politecnico di Milano

November 19, 2013

Title: Tracking and Characterizing Botnets Using Automatically Generated DomainsSpeaker: Prof. Stefano Zanero, Politecnico di MilanoDate/time: Tuesday, November 19, 12:00pm-1:00pmLocation: Babbio Center 221Host: Georgios PortokalidisAbstract:Modern botnets rely on domain-generation algorithms (DGAs) to build resilient command-and-control infrastructures that are difficult to track or deactivate. Considerable attention has been given to recognizing automatically generated domains (AGDs) from DNS traffic, in order to identify previously unknown AGDs, which helps in the task of disrupting botnets’ communication capabilities.  Unfortunately, unti ...read more

CS Department Seminar: Dr. John Langford, Microsoft Research NY

November 13, 2013

Title: Extreme MulticlassDate/time: Wednesday, November 13, 11:00am-12:00pmLocation: Babbio Center 310

Abstract:Standard multiclass classification techniques require O(k) computation during train and test where k is the number of classes, yet the information theoretic lower bound is O(log k). This gap matters little when k is on the order of 10 or 100, but at 10^4  or 10^6  it matters a great deal. I will discuss the theory of extreme multiclass classification including consistency, robustness, efficiency, and structure learning.Bio:John Langford is a machine learning research scientist, a field which he says "is shifting f ...read more

CS Department Seminar: Prof. Li Zhang, University of Wisconsin-Madison

October 21, 2013

Title: Small Image Sensors and Big Visual Data

Date: October 21, 2013 at 2:00pm

Location: Babbio Center 221

Abstract:

This talk will discuss small image sensor designs and big visual data parsing and their applications. We live in a technology world in which cameras are shrinking in size and photos and videos are exploding in quantity. My research has been dealing with technical challenges in both areas. I will show a single-chip design for compressive sensing of high-speed high-dynamic-range videos. The design has the potential benefit of achieving nearly 100% light throughput and uses reduced sampling rate ...read more
