CS Dept. Seminar: DR. Johannes Buchmann (Technische Universität Darmstadt) - Internet Privacy. Taking opportunities, assessing risks, building trust

Lieb 319

ABSTRACT

The German cyber security and privacy debate is characterized by a contradiction. On the one hand, privacy and confidentiality concerns of individuals and institutions lead to a great insecurity in the public debate. On the other hand, Germany is very active in using IT technology and developing its potentials. I will briefly report on two projects that aim at resolving this contradiction and that I coordinate/d. The first project is the interdisciplinary "Internet Privacy Project" of the German Academy of Science and Engineering acatech. In this project, scientists from the areas of philosophy, sociology, law, economy and computing and industry partners such as Google, Deutsche Post, Nokia, and IBM developed recommendations how to overcome the aforementioned contradiction (see http://www.acatech.de/uk/home-uk/work-and-results/current-projects/inter...).  I will discuss the innovative approach of this project and will review its recommendations. One recommendation of the "Internet Privacy Project" is to provide secure cryptography in the long term. This is what the second project deals with CROSSING - Cryptography-based security solutions-enabling trust in new and next generation computing environments (see https://www.crossing.tu-darmstadt.de/). CROSSING is a collaborative research center of the German Research Foundation that started on October 1, 2014. CROSSING brings together scientists from physics, cryptography, system security, formal methods, software engineering, etc. to achieve its task of coming up with cryptography-based security solutions that are efficient and secure cryptographic concepts, their implementation, and integration.

CS Dept. Seminar: Vasileios P. Kemerlis (Columbia University) - Building Secure Operating Systems

Lieb 319

ABSTRACT

Today's operating systems are large, complex, and plagued with vulnerabilities that allow perpetrators to exploit them for profit. The constant rise in the number of software weaknesses, coupled with the sophistication of modern adversaries, make the need for effective and adaptive defenses more critical than ever. In this talk, I will present my work on developing novel protection mechanisms and exploit prevention techniques that improve the security posture of commodity operating systems. In particular, I will discuss kGuard and XPFO, two projects whose goal is to harden contemporary OSes against attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in kernel code, without entailing additional software (e.g., hypervisor or VMM) or special hardware. In addition, I will talk about ret2dir: a new kernel exploitation technique that I developed, which uncovered how fundamental OS design practices and implementation decisions can significantly weaken the effectiveness of state of-the-art kernel protection mechanisms.

CSW Event: David Kaiser (MIT), "How the Hippies Saved Physics"

Babbio 122, Stevens Institute of Technology

Center for Science Writings Event
David Kaiser, head of Science and Technology Studies, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, on his book How the Hippies Saved Physics
Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2-3:30 pm.

ABSTRACT
Today, quantum information science is among the most exciting scientific frontiers, attracting billions of dollars in funding and thousands of talented researchers. But this cutting-edge field has a surprisingly psychedelic past. In this lecture David Kaiser will introduce us to a band of freewheeling physicists who defied the imperative to “shut up and calculate” and helped to rejuvenate modern physics.

In the 1970s, amid severe cutbacks in physics funding, a small group of underemployed physicists in Berkeley decided to throw off the constraints of academia and explore the wilder side of science. Dubbing themselves the “Fundamental Fysiks Group,” they pursued an unconventional, speculative approach to physics. They studied quantum theory alongside Eastern mysticism and psychic mind-reading, discussing the latest developments while lounging in hot tubs. Unlikely as it may seem, their work on Bell’s theorem and quantum entanglement helped pave the way for today’s breakthroughs in quantum information science.

BIOGRAPHY
David Kaiser is Germeshausen Professor of the History of Science and Department Head of MIT's Program in Science, Technology, and Society, and also a member of MIT's Department of Physics. He completed an A.B. in physics at Dartmouth College and Ph.D.s in physics and the history of science at Harvard University. Kaiser's historical research focuses on the development of physics in the United States during the Cold War, looking at how the discipline has evolved at the intersection of politics, culture, and the changing shape of higher education. His physics research focuses on early-universe cosmology, working at the interface of particle physics and gravitation.

Kaiser is author of the award-winning book, Drawing Theories Apart: The Dispersion of Feynman Diagrams in Postwar Physics (University of Chicago Press, 2005), which traces how Richard Feynman's idiosyncratic approach to quantum physics entered the mainstream. His latest book, How the Hippies Saved Physics: Science, Counterculture, and the Quantum Revival (W. W. Norton, 2011), charts the early history of Bell's theorem and quantum entanglement and was named "Book of the Year" by Physics World magazine.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Science Writings and the College of Arts and Letters.

CAL Lecture: Ryan Abrecht, "Colonizing the Center: Immigration and Neighborhood Life in Ancient Rome"

Morton 324, Stevens Institute of Technology

CAL Lecture: Colonizing the Center: Immigration and Neighborhood Life in Ancient Rome
By Ryan Abrecht, Lecturer of History, University of California, Santa Barbara
February 5, 2015

ABSTRACT
During its heyday in the first centuries of the Common Era, imperial Rome attracted generations of immigrants from across the known world. What happened to these newcomers once they arrived on the city’s unforgiving streets? Where did they live, work, and worship? How did they achieve a sense of the familiar in the crowded capital? To answer these questions, this talk will examine life in Trastevere, an immigrant neighborhood on the outskirts of Rome that was home to a diverse population with ties to the Eastern Mediterranean. Many of Trastevere’s residents spoke foreign languages, worshipped alien gods, and toiled in service industries that earned them the scorn of the capital’s elites. Yet this community on the far bank of the Tiber River also played an important role in the evolution of Rome’s economic, religious, and social life. A combination of textual, epigraphic, and archaeological evidence allows us to see how residents of this “small world” navigated the social and spatial boundaries that surrounded them, traversing the imperial city to work, worship, and participate in civic life. As they did so they interacted with locals in ways that called into question the limits of national identity and, depending on the circumstances, could either fan the flames of xenophobia or help nurture new cultural syntheses. Through this process of boundary negotiation, residents of neighborhoods like Trastevere helped redefine the very idea of what it meant to be “Roman” over time.  

BIOGRAPHY
Ryan Abrecht earned his Ph.D. in History from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2014.  A specialist in ancient Mediterranean history and the Roman Empire in particular, he is also broadly interested in transnational migration, urbanism, and the ways that imperialism shapes the identities of conquerors and conquered peoples alike. His dissertation, “My Neighbor the Barbarian: Immigrant Communities in Classical Athens, Imperial Rome, and Tang Chang’an,” analyzed three ancient imperial capitals as borderland spaces where social and spatial boundaries overlapped and the problem of how to accommodate new populations into existing structures of imperial domination was worked out.  He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at UCSB’s Interdisciplinary Humanities Center and a lecturer in the History department and Writing Program, where he teaches a variety of upper-division courses and introductory surveys.

Beyond Technology Acceptance to Effective Technology Use

Babbio Center 110

Research Colloquium


Patricia Holahan, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Howe School of Technology Management

ABSTRACT:  Prior research has documented that perceived usefulness and ease of use are important determinants of individuals’ decisions to adopt new information technologies (ITs).  However, in the organizational context managers are often faced with situations where they must implement a new information technology the targeted users did not endorse or which conflicts with extant systems, culture, or competing organizational agendas – and thus the users may not hold favorable perceptions of the technology’s usefulness or ease of use.  This research identifies a parsimonious set of determinants of technology acceptance able to be influenced by technology implementers and developers. We support compatibility with workplace values, climate for implementation, and compatibility with work processes as predictors of usefulness and ease of use.  Further, we support that these determinants have differential effects on two dimensions of effective technology use -- quality of use and consistency of use.  This research goes beyond the technology acceptance literature by focusing on effective technology use.   Embedded in our research model is the notion that outcomes from information technologies stem from how the technology is used as well as the technology itself. Our findings have important implications for actions managers and technology developers can take to increase employee acceptance and utilization of new information technologies.

BIOGRAPHY:  Patricia Holahan is an associate professor of Management at Stevens, where she teaches courses in the management of technology, and organizational behavior and theory. Her research interests focus on the diffusion and implementation new technology and the management of product development teams. Her work has been published in several leading academic journals including, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Management, and the Journal of Managerial Studies. Dr. Holahan is the past Research Director for the Product Development Management Association’s Research Foundation.

Financial Engineering Seminar: Kamyar Neshvadian "Yield Curve Modeling and Commodities"

Babbio 122

Yield Curve Modeling and Commodities
Kamyar Neshvadian
Quantitative Researcher/Trader
Highbridge Capital Management

ABSTRACT:
Recent events in commodity markets have renewed interest in precise commodity term-structure modeling.

Commodity indices providing investors with exposure through futures markets traditionally roll their positions just prior to maturity to contracts with the next expiry date. With the development of contango in energy markets, market participants attempt to optimize their exposure by looking further out to determine the contract to roll into. These strategies attempt to maximize positive roll-return in backwardated markets and minimize losses during periods of contango.

Whether to develop or simply evaluate these innovative funds, it is imperative that one understand the dynamic nature of the commodity forward curve. The Nelson-Siegel (N-S) model for the yield curve, first proposed in 1987, provides us with a simple characterization that also has the flexibility to span the space of typical yield curve shapes.  This framework, equally popular among practitioners and central bankers , was first introduced to describe snapshots of the curve, but has since proved to be useful in identifying the three most significant factors, level, slope and curvature, that describe curve-dynamics. The model has also been found to deliver superior forecasting performance particularly at medium and long horizons.

The final missing link that establishes this methodology as a corner stone of fixed-income modeling is discussed in the recent work by Christensen who show that a modified version of the dynamic N-S framework can be cast as an arbitrage-free affine term-structure model, thus classifying it in a family that has been studied extensively in the theoretical literature on financial economics. In this paper, we adopt the N-S methodology to model the time-evolution of commodity futures prices.

BIO: Mr. Neshvadian has over 8 years of experience in financial industry in various capacities. He was a member of portfolio management team of Global Macro strategy in Highbridge Capital Management (HCM), a subsidiary of JP Morgan Asset Management.

CS Dept. Seminar: Hwajung Hong (Georgia Institute of Technology) - Designing Socially-augmented Assistive Technology

Lieb 319

ABSTRACT

The rise in social computing systems has spawned new opportunities to serve people with special needs. These systems can generate online social networks that supplement primary direct care providers, who are often overburdened. My research focuses on developing socially-augmented assistive technology to help individuals with autism navigate their everyday life more independently and effectively. I have investigated the combination of social media and crowdsourcing to provide information or advice on challenging situations such as public anxiety and workplace conflicts. In this talk I will describe my research agenda around socially-augmented assistive technologies that garner support from a variety of social relationships across family, friends, and crowd workers. I will demonstrate the limitations of current social media tools and discuss the design opportunities for the tools in assisting individuals with autism. I will also present my vision for designing better social computing systems that support behavioral and mental health of individuals with special needs.

CAL Lecture: Nicole Eaton, "Kalingrad’s German Problem: The Second World War and the Meaning of Soviet Socialism, 1945-1948"

Morton 324

CAL Lecture: Kalingrad’s German Problem: The Second World War and the Meaning of Soviet Socialism, 1945-1948
By Nicole Eaton, Visiting Assistant Professor of History, Weseleyan University
February 6, 2015

ABSTRACT
In the spring of 1945, Königsberg, the easternmost city in Hitler’s Germany became Kaliningrad, the westernmost city in Stalin’s Soviet Russia. Kaliningrad today is an exclave of the Russian Federation, surrounded by NATO and the EU. Kaliningrad’s peculiar existence and identity are firmly connected to its creation in the aftermath of the Second World War, and tied directly to the Soviet Union’s foundational myth of socialism’s triumph over fascism. This talk focuses Kaliningrad creation as a new Soviet city in in the immediate postwar period, when that foundational myth was still being created, not just by the regime in Moscow, but by ordinary Soviet soldiers and civilians in Kaliningrad. It will focus on the new Soviet government’s interaction with the remaining German population, and how local administrators combined their understanding of the legacy of the war with the experience of living together with the former enemy. The presentation will show how Kaliningrad officials alternated between policies of rehabilitation and revenge in dealing with Königsberg’s Germans, and how this local dialogue led ultimately to an understanding of socialism that looked unwittingly similar to the fascism it had defeated. 

BIOGRAPHY
Nicole Eaton received her PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in 2013, with an emphasis on Modern European, Soviet, and German history. She is currently Visiting Assistant Professor at Wesleyan University has been a research fellow at the Harriman Institute of Columbia University and the Kennan Institute (Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars) in Washington, DC. Eaton's research interests include social history and microhistory, Nazism and Stalinism. Her research focuses on a single decade of politics, and everyday life, and the German-Soviet encounter in Königsberg-Kaliningrad—unique as the only place ruled by both Nazi Germany and Stalin’s Soviet Russia as their own patrimony.  It explores the way both regimes attempted to transform the city's urban space and its inhabitants, arguing that the intersection of national prescriptions and local conditions gave rise to conflicting practices.

CAL Lecture: Derek Epp, "Public Information Processing"

Morton 324

"Public Information Processing"
By Derek Epp
Ph.D. Candidate in American Politics, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

ABSTRACT
In this presentation, Derek Epp discusses a model of public information processing that describes how mass publics allocate attention across political issues. Epp postulates that basic cognitive limitations create a bottleneck of attention. Consequently, the public ignores most issues, while a few receive disproportionately intense scrutiny. The implications for movement in public opinion appear substantial. Epp finds that where attention is concentrated, massive shifts in opinion are much more likely, as the public rapidly adjusts its political priorities, but in the absence of attention, opinions drift only marginally. Politicians (and political scientists) should interpret opinion polls with great caution. A lack of movement in the polls is not necessarily indicative of a supportive or ambivalent public, rather it suggests a public that has not yet attended to the issue at hand.

BIOGRAPHY
Derek Epp is a Ph.D. candidate in American Politics with a minor in Public Policy at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He is completing his dissertation, Information Processing and the Instability of Political Outcomes, and anticipates receiving his doctoral degree in May 2015. His research agenda focuses on policy change, asking why some policies persist – remaining the status quo for decades – while others undergo frequent adjustments. In particular, he is interested in measuring the capacity of institutions and publics to attend to political information and then tracking the allocation of that attention across issues: what issues receive attention, for how long, and to what effect.

CAL Lecture: Lindsey Cormack, "Sins of Omission: Legislator (Mis)Representation in Constituent Communications"

Morton 324

Sins of Omission: Legislator (Mis)Representation in Constituent Communications
By Lindsey Cormack, Visiting Assistant Professor, Political Science, Stevens Institute of Technology
February 17, 2015

ABSTRACT
Do legislators accurately communicate their voting decisions to constituents? In this paper I propose a theory of legislator-to-constituent communication that anticipates a relationship between the bundle of votes a legislator chooses to reveal and the partisan composition of her constituency. To test this theory, I use an original dataset of over 40,000 official legislator-to-constituent communications containing 30,000 vote revelations from the 111th Congress. After presenting a series of empirical descriptions of this new data, I find evidence supporting the theory a legislator’s endeavor to present herself as more ideologically extreme varies systematically with the ratio of base to swing voters in her district. This result is contrasted with an analysis of voting extremism that finds that the ideological preferences of donors explains roll call voting patterns better than this ratio. Additionally, I provide evidence that nearly a fifth of all U.S. adults have subscribed to these types of communications, demonstrating the importance of studying the strategies employed in modern legislator-to-constituent communications.

Humanities Forum: William Rouse, “How Greater New York City Transformed America”

Humanities Forum: William Rouse
“How Greater New York City Transformed America”

ABSTRACT
Silicon Valley in California and Route 128 in Massachusetts are often noted as two of the most important innovation ecosystems in the U.S. Silicon Valley emerged in the late 1930s under the tutelage of Frederick Terman, Dean of Engineering at Stanford University. Route 128 emerged as the Massachusetts Miracle in the early 1950s following World War II, with MIT playing a key role. In contrast, the innovation ecosystem of greater New York City began around 1800 and continues today. This presentation highlights 36 innovators in ships and railroads; clothes and personal care; pharmaceuticals; buildings and builders; oil and refining; electricity, computers and communications; finance and banking; academics and activists, and aviation. These people and the enterprises with which they were associated fostered the innovations that spawned the aerospace, computer, electronics, and energy industries that enabled Silicon Valley and Route 128. Along the way, greater New York City morphed repeatedly. This story of repeated transformation is outlined in parallel with highlighting some rather amazing people.

Joint Humanities Forum / Onassis Foundation Event: Golfo Maggini, "Heideggerian Insights Into Contemporary Technoscience: The Presence of Aristotelian Technē"

Morton 324, Stevens Institute of Technology

Heideggerian Insights Into Contemporary Technoscience: The Presence of Aristotelian Technē
By Golfo Maggini (Associate Professor, Modern and Contemporary Philosophy, University of Ioannina)

ABSTRACT
Phenomenology has often been presented as a philosophy of praxis, which can trigger a questioning on today’s complex technological reality. In this lecture, Golfo Maggini will try to raise the question of technoscience within Heidegger’s phenomenology of technics in the light of recent theories of technoscience. To this aim she will elaborate on the interpretive approaches of Don Ihde, Gilbert Hottois, Dominique Janicaud, Albert Borgmann, Andrew Feenberg, and Iain Thompson. The focus of her investigation will be Heidegger’s recently published lecture courses such as Contributions to Philosophy: Of the Event [GA 65], Mindfulness [GA 66], The Event [GA 71], and Bremen and Freiburg Lectures [GA 79], where Aristotle’s productionist metaphysics plays a key role.

BIOGRAPHY
Golfo Maggini is Associate Professor of Modern and Contemporary Philosophy at the University of Ioannina, Greece. She graduated from the Department of Philosophy, Psychology, and Pedagogy of the University of Athens in 1991. She pursued her postgraduate, doctoral and postdoctoral studies at the University of Paris IV-Sorbonne, University of Paris XII-Val de Marne and the State University of New York at Stony Brook respectively. She is the author of two books on contemporary philosophy: Habermas and the Neoaristotelians: Ethics of Discourse in Jürgen Habermas and the Challenge of Neoaristotelianism (Athens, 2006) and Towards a Hermeneutics of the Technological World: From Heidegger to Contemporary Technoscience (Athens, 2010). She has also published various papers in international philosophical journals such as Nietzsche Studien, Revue Philosophique de Louvain, Philosophiques, Dialogue, Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy, and Techné: Research in Philosophy and Technology. Her main research interest is in phenomenology, hermeneutics, theory of modernity, and in the phenomenology reception of Greek philosophy.

Deans' Seminar Series: Dr. Naomi Oreskes, "Merchants of Doubt: How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco Smoke to Global Warming"

Babbio 122, Stevens Institute of Technology

ABSTRACT: Naomi Oreskes will discuss her blockbuster book Merchants of Doubt, which documents how a loose-knit group of high-level scientists and scientific advisers, with deep connections in politics and industry, has misled the public on the dangers of tobacco, acid rain, the ozone hole, DDT and global warming. The book, co-authored with Erik Conway, has inspired a major documentary from Sony Pictures. Nobel Laureate and former Vice President Al Gore said that "anyone concerned about the state of democracy in America should read this book.”

BIOGRAPHY: Naomi Oreskes is a professor of the History of Science and an affiliated professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University. She received her PhD at Stanford in 1990 in the Graduate Special Program in Geological Research and History of Science. In her 2004 paper published in Science, "Beyond the Ivory Tower: The Scientific Consensus on Climate Change,” Oreskes analyzed nearly 1,000 scientific journals to directly assess the magnitude of scientific consensus around anthropogenic climate change. The paper was famously cited by Al Gore in his film An Inconvenient Truth and led Oreskes to testify in front of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. Oreskes is the co-author of the 2014 book The Collapse of Western Civilization: A View from the Future, which looks back at the present from the year 2093.
