Feiner’s Computer Graphics and User Interfaces Lab, among the first participating in Verizon’s 5G incubator, aims to enable therapists to work on motor rehabilitation through 5G with remote patients who simultaneously manipulate the same objects.
In a new approach to security, Sethumadhavan will work with a team of researchers, many from the Data Science Institute, to build security mechanisms into the well-defined interface between hardware and software.
By imperceptibly changing, or perturbing, the shapes of fonts, Columbia researchers have invented a way to embed hidden information in ordinary … Continue reading FontCode: Hiding information in plain text, unobtrusively and across file types
“An Analysis of the Skype Peer-to-Peer Internet Telephony Protocol” (2006) was first paper to use traffic analysis to reverse-engineer an intentionally obscured network application. The other coauthor, Salman Baset, was Schulzrinne’s student at the time.
