Towards Self-Powered Cameras
by Shree Nayar, Daniel Sims, and Mikhail Fridberg wins Best Paper at International Conference on Computational Photography.
It describes a camera that converts incident light to energy.
Steve Nowick will be the keynote speaker at the IEEE System Level Interconnect Prediction Workshop. The talk is entitled
Asynchronous and GALS NoC's for Scalable High-Performance Computer Systems
June 6 in San Francisco.
Tony Jebara is featured in BBC report on advances in artificial intelligence—and the possible dangers. He explains what is meant by artificial intelligence and what machines lack currently.
Segments start 2:14, 14:25, 26:05.
Video of new computational hydrographic printing method—which aligns physically a color texture onto a 3D surface with a precision never before attained—draws 100,000+ YouTube views in 5 days.
Research led by Changxi Zheng.
CS Depart announces that Suman Jana will join faculty January 2016 as assistant professor. Jana is a postdoctoral researcher at University of Texas (Austin)
working on issues of computer security and privacy.
Algorithm turns virtually any 3D object into a twisty-jointed puzzle similar to a Rubik's cube. A video shows how it auto-generates rotation axes and interlocking pieces for 3D fabrication.
Research led by Changxi Zheng.
At Conference on Internet Governance and Cyber-Security, Steven Bellovin is part of panel on mitigating cyber-risks, and Henning Schulzrinne moderates discussion of Cyber-security and the Internet of Things.
cites "Computing in Context" as one effort at Columbia and Barnard to promote digital humanities. The course, taught by Adam Cannon, teaches coding basics
to students interested in history, economics, and literary theory.
Paper by Columbia computer scientists shows it's possible to spy on keystrokes and mouse clicks in a web browser by viewing data flowing in and out of a PC cache.
No special software is needed.
Martha Kim, in this month's issue of
MIT Technology Review
, cites the need for new computer architectures. Without fundamental changes, it is becoming increasingly awkward
to express programs needed for today's tasks.
Mohit Gupta, a research scientist in Computer Vision lab, is part of a team that created a low-cost 3-D camera that (unlike the Kinect) uses precise single-point scanning but in a fast, efficient way.
It also operates outdoors.
The Wall Street Journal
runs piece on Shree Nayar's self-powered camera. An accompanying video explains how an image sensor inside the camera takes in light and transfers it into energy.
Camera can take one picture per second forever.
In interview with Business Standard, Vishal Misra argues that Indian regulators should focus efforts on maximizing consumer benefits
and not allow mobile providers to impose tolls on app-based services.
Yaniv Erlich will be one of the speakers at this year's Big Data in Biomedicine conference to be held May 20-22 in Stanford, CA.
Erlich will speak as part of the genomics session.
Vishal Misra pens opinion piece arguing that (India telecom) Airtel's new Zero service (which offers select Internet services for free but demands payment for others) violates net neutrality.
It leads to preferential treatment.
Steven Feiner to sit on ETIA panel exploring new advances in virtual and augmented reality and how they apply to entertainment.
SMPTE is producing the ETIA conference held June 16-17 at Stanford.
profiles Allison Lewko for her work in encrypting data so the data is still usable. Lewko, who initially wanted to be a novelist, studied cryptography
after discovering that math can be creative.
Moawia Eldeeb made his way from a farm in Egypt to studying computer science at Columbia and to co-founding SmartSpot (with Joshua Augustin, SEAS '2015),
whose fitness app relies on computer vision techniques.
Shree Nayar and 250 other inventors were formally inducted into the National Academy of Inventors.
The ceremony took place at Caltech.
Computer science professors to present new work at the Data Science Institute's
Data on a Mission
. Presenting March 31 will be Peter Allen, Yaniv Erlich,
Henning Schulzrinne, Augustin Chaintreau, Roxana Geambasu, David Blei.
In a wide-ranging interview on the O'Reilly Data show, David Blei traces the evolution of topic modeling, touching on its origins,
his own seminal work on LDA, and future directions.
Best-paper award is given to Columbia computer scientists who describe a novel application for improved quality of content delivery over wireless networks.
The paper is to be presented at WCNC 2015.
Vishal Misra, interviewed about FCC vote to preempt laws limiting municipal Internet, cites a bleak competitive landscape.
At "true broadband speeds," most Americans have no real choice.
Peter Allen is interviewed on The Osgood File about the bright future of robots.
He believes personal robots able to fold clothes and prepare food could be a reality in the next ten years.
Paper by Columbia computer scientists is one of IEEE Micro's 12 Top Picks from across all conferences in computer architecture.
It describes an improved processor for relational data analytics.
