Title

The challenge of physical attacks on cryptographic schemes: past, present and future


Abstract

For many years now, cryptographers have designed cryptographic primitives with sound mathematical foundations, which in theory remain completely secure to this day. And yet, implementations of these primitives get broken all the time. This is because of several gaps that exist between theory and practice. The purpose of this talk is to explore one of those gaps: that of physical attacks, which allow an adversary to bypass mathematical security guarantees by interacting with cryptographic devices like smartcards and smartphones in ways that are not considered in the models of theoretical cryptographers. We will present some striking historical examples of such attacks, discuss more recent progress along these lines, and mention ways in which these attacks can inform our choice of next-generation cryptographic primitives (particularly for the development of cryptography secure against quantum computers).

Title

Packing Problems: Algorithms and Complexity


Abstract

Packing problems are concerned with positioning geometric objects so that they do not overlap and require an amount of space as small as possible. They have been investigated within mathematics for centuries starting with the famous Kepler conjecture. There are many surprising properties and open problems in connection with packing. The lecture will give a short survey about these "classical" issues but then concentrate on algorithms for packing. Since already the most simple variants are NP-hard, it makes sense to look for efficient approximation algorithms. We will present constant factor approximations for packing rectangles and convex polygons into containers which are minimum area rectangles or convex sets. Algorithms for analogous problems concerning three-dimensional objects will be presented, as well.
This is joint research with Mark de Berg, Christian Knauer, Léonard von Niederhäusern, and Nadja Scharf.


Bio

Helmut Alt got his doctorate at Universitaet des Saarlandes, Germany in 1976. He taught for six years at the Pennsylvania State University, U.S.A., for one year at University of Hildesheim, Germany, and for 31 years at Freie Universitaet Berlin, Germany. His research has been concerned with algorithms and complexity theory, in particular complexity of arithmetics and computational geometry. In the latter field he mostly concentrated on the recognition and analysis of geometric shapes.

commons 이야기: digital commons에서 city commons까지


Abstract

전통적으로 Commons는 시장이나 국가가 아닌 커뮤니티 기반의 사회적 규약에 의한 배분이 이루어지는 자원을 의미한다. 그러나 오늘날 Commons는 그 개념에서 추출되는 원리로서 생활방식과 사회, 경제, 정치시스템의 변화에 촛점을 두는바, digital commons에서 social commons, sharing economy를 거쳐 city commons에 이르는 변화는 이를 잘 설명해준다. 2005년에 출발한 CC Korea가 코드나무, 공유허브로 영역이 확대되고 C.O.D.E.로 바뀌면서 Commons Lab을 그 미션으로 정하게 된 과정 역시 그와 같은 여정이다.

Structurally-Constrained Estimations: Applications and Theories


Abstract

High-dimensional inference deals with models in which the number of parameters p is substantially larger than the number of training data n. In this talk, we will discuss recent advances in the analysis of M-estimators for high-dimensional data. Specifically, we review a unified framework for establishing consistency and convergence rates for regularized estimators. After that, we will introduce a unified framework for the high-dimensional analysis of "superposition-structured" or "dirty" models, and its examples such as robust PCA.

Leveraging Mobility in Vehicular and Indoor Wireless Networks


Abstract

This talk will focus on the role that mobility plus in two systems, each of which operates in very different network settings, pushing different system design boundaries in each. In the Wi-Fi Goes to Town project, we have built a Wi-Fi based roadside hotspot network designed to operate at vehicular speeds and picocell (meter-sized) cells. Wi-Fi Goes to Town APs make delivery decisions to the vehicular clients they serve at millisecond-level granularities, exploiting path diversity in roadside networks. We have implemented our system in an eight-AP network alongside a nearby road, and evaluate its performance with mobile clients moving at up to 25 mph. Next, I will describe MobiTagBot, a system that uses mobility at a slower scale and in an indoor setting. MobiTagBot can order RFID-tagged books placed on a library shelf 3-5 cm from each other, detecting any mis-shelved books.

Toward Data-Driven Education


Abstract

An educational program of study can be viewed as a knowledge graph consisting of learning units and relationships between them. Such a knowledge graph provides the core data structure for organizing and navigating learning experiences. We address three issues in this talk. First, how can we synthesize the knowledge graph, given a set of concepts to be covered in the study program. Next, how can we use data mining to identify and correct deficiencies in a knowledge graph. Finally, how can we use data mining to form study groups with the goal of maximizing overall learning. We conclude by pointing out some open research problems.

Internet of things - Challenges and Approaches


Abstract

There has been an exponential growth of Internet of Things (IoTs) that are being developed and deployed for diverse applications and environments. By year 2020, more than 50 billion devices are predicted to be connected (via the Internet). The key challenges of such a rapid growth of IoTs are heterogeneity of HW, SW and users; low-power communications and computation; and privacy and security.

I will first cover generic aspects, applications and communications of IoTs and then elaborate on security and privacy challenges associated with IoTs. If time allows, I will discuss V-Auth, a novel way of protecting the privacy of voice assistants, such as Amazon Alexa, Google Now, and Apple Siri, etc.

Robotic Competitions: Lessons Learned


Abstract

With recent introduction of affordable sensor and actuator hardware, as well as a huge increase in computing power, the wide adoption of intelligent robots is finally becoming a reality. Such a movement is greatly accelerated by recent robotic competitions, which requires a general, self-contained robot system that can autonomously work in uncontrolled environments.
In this talk, we will show how we build a modular, general purpose robotic software framework from simple and efficient software modules, and how the software framework has been successfully used for two recent international robotic competitions, the RoboCup international robotic soccer competition and the DARPA Robotics Challenge.
