Dr. Janne Lindqvist interdisciplinary security work, to appear in MobiSys'14, the tier-1 conference on mobile systems, is getting nice publicity around the world.
Can Clouds Transform Science ?
Prof. Parashar is interviewed by Wolfgang Gentzsch from International Science Grid This Week.
An excerpt from the interview:
Manish, computational and data-enabled science and engineering (CDS&E) has traditionally used dedicated platforms and specialized high-end systems – why should clouds be considered for them?
NSF has published an article where they talk about 9 ways in which computing has made an impact on HIV research. One of the 9 impactful ways is the work of ECE Professor Shantenu Jha with his collaborators: # 7 of, "Nine ways NSF-supported supercomputers help scientists understand and treat the disease"
The Warren Township Committee announced the results of the Township Utility Hazard Inventory and Remediation Project conducted by a group of volunteers known as the "Warren Township Utility Advisory Committee (WTUAC)."
The Hazard Inventory was conducted in the fall of 2013 to:
1) Document potential threats (hazards) to the townships electrical delivery system,
2) Report the hazards to the utility companies (JCP&L, PSEG),
3) Develop and implement a remediation plan to address the hazard list .
MIT Tech Review published an article including comments of Janne Lindqvist about the security of a new mobile OS by Firefox.
The touch communications project that recently won the best paper award at ACM MobiCom has been featured in MIT Tech Review. The WINLAB team led by Prof. Marco Gruteser built a working prototype pictured here.
A special ring worn on the finger the finger transmits a few bits of data through the skin to the touch screen.
The method demonstrated by the WINLAB prototype "opens new directions in user interaction and authentication", says Romit Roy Choudhury, a computer scientist at Duke University familiar with the research.
Dr. Janne Lindqvist's privacy project together with his colleagues Jason Hong and Joy Zhang at Carnegie Mellon University was featured on MIT Technology review. With today's smartphone platforms, users do not understand privacy ramifications of their installed applications, which is also why a recent FTC report has called for understandable privacy disclosures for mobile platforms. The project provides for better privacy disclosures for mobile phone users by using novel crowdsourcing techniques and user interface designs.
Professor Greg Burdea has been featured in a new exhibit, "Brain: The Inside Story," at the American Museum of Natural History, in New York City. Open now through August 15th, the exhibit seeks to provide visitors "a new perspective and keen insight into their own brains." Professor Burdea's research contributes quite well to such an aim, and it’s no surprise that the Museum would incorporate his work. Not a surprise except to Prof. Burdea, a member of the Rutgers ECE faculty, who had no idea about his involvement with the exhibit.
Dr. Dario Pompili's research was featured on <a href="http://www.ece.rutgers.edu/%3Ca%20href%3D"http://www.isgtw.org/">http://www.isgtw.org/">iSGTW</a>, an international weekly online publication that covers distributed computing and the research it enables. iSGTW is jointly funded by organizations in America and Europe. In the U.S., it is funded by the DoE's Office of Science and by the NSF via the Open Science Grid.
