“Pixel Approximate Entropy” technique quantifies visual complexity by providing a score that automatically identifies difficult charts; could help users in emergency settings to read data at a glance and make better decisions faster.
In light of how easy it is to identify people based on their DNA, researchers suggest ways to protect genetic … Continue reading How Can We Keep Genetic Data Safe?
Four papers were accepted to the Foundations of Computer Science (FOCS) symposium. CS researchers worked alongside colleagues from various organizations to … Continue reading New algorithms developed by CS researchers at FOCS 2018
The gender gap in technology is growing, and it’s not just for the reasons that you might expect. While access to opportunity – or rather the lack thereof – is often pointed to as the … Continue reading Women in Technology Initiative Addresses Gender Gap
The department welcomes Baishakhi Ray, Ronghui Gu, Carl Vondrick and Tony Dear. Baishakhi Ray Assistant Professor, Computer Science PhD, University … Continue reading CS Welcomes New Faculty
Researchers from the Columbia Computer Graphics Group will present at SIGGRAPH 2018. The 45th SIGGRAPH Conference highlights the latest research … Continue reading Nine papers from CS researchers are part of SIGGRAPH 2018
Last month, the National Science Foundation announced that it will fund COSMOS, a large-scale, outdoor testbed for a new generation … Continue reading Interview with Henning Schulzrinne on the coming COSMOS testbed
Daniel Hsu and his student Arushi Gupta show it is possible to build discrete choice models by estimating parameters from … Continue reading In discrete choice modeling, estimating parameters from two or three—not all—options
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.
For their collaborative project “Acceleration of Deep Neural Networks via Heterogeneous Computing for Real-Time Processing of Neutrino and Particle-Trace Imagery,” Luca … Continue reading Luca Carloni and Georgia Karagiorgi (Physics) are among 2018 RISE awardees
