CAL Lecture: Sasha Kimel, "Living in a Genetic World: How Learning about Interethnic Genetic Similarities and Differences affects Peace and Conflict"

Morton 324

ABSTRACT
In an effort to instigate conflict, genocidal rhetoric sometimes propagates the notion that ethnic groups are genetically dissimilar while, in an attempt to promote peace, some conflict reduction programs emphasize groups’ genetic similarities. Meanwhile, DNA testing services are increasingly being sought to determine one’s ethnic lineage and the media is frequently reporting on the degree of genetic overlap between groups in conflict. However, the actual consequences of emphasizing genetic differences and similarities between ethnic groups engaged in conflict remain unknown. The present studies examined how learning about whether your own ethnic group is either genetically related to, or genetically distinct from, a disliked ethnic group affects your attitudes, emotions and behaviors towards members of that group. Across four studies, using diverse samples and contexts, it was demonstrated that altering perceptions of genetic overlap between groups in conflict impacts factors that are directly related to sustaining and reducing interethnic hostility. Specifically, heightening perceptions of intergroup genetic similarities versus differences led to less negative intergroup attitudes and aggressive behavior as well as less support for destructive conflict-related policies. These findings indicate that learning about the genetic similarities between oneself and a disliked outgroup may be a vital step towards fostering peace while, conversely, learning about the differences may contribute to the promotion of violence. Possible interventions and implications for research and reporting on group-based genetic differences will be discussed.

BIOGRAPHY
Sasha Kimel is a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard University. She received her Ph.D. in Social Psychology from University of Michigan and her B.A. from the University of British Columbia. Her research draws on a variety of theoretical frameworks and methodologies to examine the psychological underpinnings of ethnic conflict and how these vary by culture. In her most recent work, she examines how the communication of theories that emphasize genetic explanations affects interethnic hostility. Sasha’s research has been published in a number of journals, including Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, NeuroImage and Journal of Behavioral Decision Making. She currently teaches a number of courses at Harvard University including Cultural Psychology, Psychology of the Political Left & Right and Psychology of Being Rich or Poor.

Humanities Forum: Alex Wellerstein, “Atomic Misconception: How the Debate over Kyoto Affected Truman’s Understanding of Hiroshima”

Morton 324, Stevens Institute of Technology

Humanities Forum: Alex Wellerstein, “Atomic Misconception: How the Debate over Kyoto Affected Truman’s Understanding of Hiroshima”

ABSTRACT
Though the history of the atomic bombing of Japan remains a controversial subject, historians today have largely come to a consensus on one aspect: that the idea of an agonized "decision to use the bomb" is a myth. At the highest level of American policy, whether to use the atomic bomb or not was simply not a question that was raised — all involved in these discussions assumed it would be used. In my talk, I will examine one of the only instances where President Truman engaged in an active policy decision regarding the use of the atomic bomb, namely the question of whether one of the first bombs should be dropped on the city of Kyoto. In this seemingly tangential discussion, one often overlooked as merely a curiosity by historians and laymen alike, there is evidence of a profound misunderstanding about the nature of nuclear weaponry on the part of Truman, and poses the issue of Truman's "decision" in an entirely new light. 

BIOGRAPHY
Alex Wellerstein is an Assistant Professor of Science and Technology Studies in the College of Arts and Letters at the Stevens Institute of Technology. He works on the history of nuclear weapons and secrecy. He has a PhD in the History of Science from Harvard University, and a BA in History from the University of California, Berkeley. He is under contract with the University of Chicago Press to complete a book on the history of nuclear secrecy in the United States, and is the author of Restricted Data: The Nuclear Secrecy Blog.

CAL Lecture: Richard W. Hass, "Creativity: Cognition + Motivation = Innovation"

Morton 324

ABSTRACT
Creativity is seen as one of the most important assets for moving society forward. However, there is still much to be learned about the seeds of creative thinking in the human mind. This presentation addresses research questions aimed at understanding creativity and creative thinking. First, what are the cognitive mechanisms behind everyday creative insights? Second, are so-called geniuses really just experts in fields that require consistent production of novel ideas? Third, which aspects of the social environment can facilitate creative thinking and which aspects of the social environment can potentially undermine creative thinking. Research focused on these questions has wide-ranging implications for science, education, industry, and the greater good of society. Results of three streams of research on these questions will be discussed, along with some of the broader impacts.

BIOGRAPHY
Richard W. Hass received his Ph.D. in cognitive science from Temple University in December 2008 and his dissertation focused on cognitive analysis of creative thinking in a sample of well-known composers. He has published in a number of scholarly journals, is editorial board member of Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts, and teaches quantitative methods for psychology at Rowan University. His current research focuses on improving measurement systems for assessing creative thinking across the life span, examining the interplay of cognitive and motivational variables in predicting creative achievement, and the efficacy of arts-based interventions for improving educational outcomes.

CS Department Seminar: Stefan Brunthaler (UC Irvine) - Large-scale Automated Software Diversity --- Programming Language Technology to Enhance System Security

Lieb 319

ABSTRACT

Security is among the most pressing problems in computing today, with high profile breaches receiving notable media coverage and increasingly also impacting daily life.  For example, the Sony breach made the headlines and forced Sony to cancel screenings of their movie "The Interview" in the United States. After talking about the current state of cyber-security, including major incidents and estimated economic damages, I will be analyzing the current software ecosystem and identify a primary culprit: the software monoculture. I will then illustrate return-oriented programming (ROP) and show how software diversity effectively mitigates this attack vector. In addition, I will cover important next steps: adaptive diversification to reduce performance impact and active defenses as a new capability.

Since there are no rules that attackers have to obey, I will then address another attack vector that is particularly worrisome in cloud environments: side channels. Attackers use side channels to infer valuable information, such as encryption keys or passwords. Next, I will present a new diversification technique that prevents side channel attacks.  Since software diversity protects against multiple attack vectors, restricting attacker's mobility and thus significantly raising the bar for attackers.

 

BIOGRAPHY

Stefan Brunthaler received his PhD in 2011 from the Vienna University of Technology under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Jens Knoop, and has since been working as Postdoctoral Scholar with Prof. Dr. Michael Franz at the University of California, Irvine. His primary research interests are in the areas of language-based security (focusing on software diversity and information-flow tracking) and the efficient implementation of dynamically-typed programming languages (focusing on Python and JavaScript). His contributions include new software defenses, such as active defenses and dynamic diversity, as well as many important optimizations, such as performance-neutral defenses and interpreter optimizations.

CS Dept. Seminar: Yinzhi Cao (Columbia University) - Enhancing System Security and Privacy with Program Analysis

Lieb 319

ABSTRACT

Cyber security and privacy have brought the attention from the general public these days. Melissa Hathaway, who advised both President Obama and President Bush, estimated in a report that governments and consumers lost $125 billion annually to cyber-attacks, including losses in tax revenue. In this talk, from the perspective of program analysis, I will discuss the security and privacy of two important computer systems: Web browser and Android system. In the first part, I will introduce how to prevent and detect drive-by download attacks, which penetrate the boundary of a browser principal. In particular, I will present JShield, a vulnerability-based detection engine that is more robust to obfuscated drive-by download attacks, when compared to various anti-virus software and most recent research papers. In the second part, I will introduce EdgeMiner, the first automatic tool that creates summaries of Android framework in the form of callback and registration pairs. With the summaries, existing static analysis system can correctly construct a control flow graph with hidden control flow dependencies introduced by callback methods.

 

BIOGRAPHY

Yinzhi Cao is a postdoctoral scientist at Columbia University. He earned his PhD in computer science at Northwestern University.  Before that, he obtained his B.E. Degree in electronics engineering at Tsinghua University in China. His research mainly focuses on the security and privacy of web, smart phones, and machine learning.

Revisiting the Athenian Trireme: Origins, Engineering and Role in World History

Bissinger, 4th floor Howe Center

SYMPOSIUM - UNIVERSITY SEMINAR SERIES


Revisiting the Athenian Trireme

Origins, Engineering, and Role in World History


Sometime in 481, as the Persian king Xerxes gathered a vast invasion force in western Anatolia, the assembly in Athens debated the proper military response. Themistocles alone argued for the need to use sea power. The Oracle's pronouncement that "a wall of wood alone shall be uncaptured, a boon to you and your children" was a clear reference to their ships' hulls, he argued, and not to some ancient fence around the acropolis. He won the argument that day and Athens bet everything on her fleet, eventually securing a great victory at nearby Salamis (in October 480 BCE). Without control of the sea, Xerxes cut the size of his land force, charged a subordinate with continuing the war, and personally returned to Asia. Although the fighting continued for another year, the lesson was not lost on the first historian of western literature, Herodotus of Halicarnassus. For him, Athens and her new fleet of warships — called triremes — saved Greece. The technological key to victory, then, lay in the trireme, a fearful weapon, which Athens was able to use to great effect, not only against Xerxes, but also in the decades to follow. With it, the Athenians forged an Empire and a flowering of culture that still amaze us.

In this symposium three noted scholars will examine the origins of the trireme's design, its engineering and legacy in naval architecture, and its broader historical impact.

SPEAKERS BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Larrie Ferriero teaches naval and systems engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology, and is an historian of science, technology and engineering. He is the author of Ships and Science" which explores the birth of scientific ship design during the Scientific Revolution.

Dr. John Hale, Director of Liberal Studies, University of Louisville, is a noted archaeologist. His most recent book, Lords of the Sea," is on Athenian sea power and the emergence of democracy.

Dr. William Murray, Mary and Gus Stathis Professor of Greek History at the University of South Florida, is author of The Age of Titans: The Rise and Fall of the Great Hellenistic Navies." His current research centers on warship rams and what they can tell us about warship collisions and the physical reality of naval combat.

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: The Scientists Behind Denial of Global Warming and Other Perils

Babbio 122, Stevens Institute of Technology

ABSTRACT: Naomi Oreskes will discuss her blockbuster book Merchants of Doubt: How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco Smoke to Global Warming, 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.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Science Writings and the College of Arts & Letters at Stevens Institute of Technology.

The annual conference will feature experts, academic researchers and thoughtful practitioners discussing the impact of velocity and agility on innovation and business success from multiple perspectives. This will be a high-value learning opportunity for members of the Alliance, the Stevens community, business leaders and researchers. Please consider attending, sharing your expertise in this area or passing this notice on to colleagues in industry.
