Ain’t a ‘puter safe,
And ain’t a bot can’t be caught,
Is network secure?
Southern Illinois University Carbondale
Dissertation title: “A SOM+ Diagnostic System for Network Intrusion Detection”
My dissertation is about network intrusion detection theory and finding malicious computer network traffic such as botnets by using computationally intelligent algorithms including neural nets, fuzzy inference, and artificial immunity.
understanding them helps us
design better things
University of Southampton
I wanted to rebuild web-based social technologies in new contexts, to let people who are currently offline access the online social experiences that so many of us take for granted. I quickly realised that a technologically-oriented solution would provide the functionality I sought, but not necessarily the underlying subjective experiences. I then developed and evaluated a design method for analysing experiences and redesigning them in new contexts.
the secret of human wit?
our skill to make Pindaric flights
remaining down to earth.
University of Stirling
The title of my project, born from the collaboration between the University of Stirling, Sitekit Labs and the MIT Media Lab, is ‘Application of Common Sense Computing to enable the development of next-generation Semantic Web applications’. My research work consists in merging AI and Semantic Web techniques to perform auto-categorization, improve HCI and ultimately emulate human intelligence.
Encrypt shall you,
Is the cipher secure?
I do not agree.
Technion (Israel Institute of Technology)
My thesis is about analyzing the strength of various block ciphers, and introducing new techniques for this analysis.
Level by level
Evolution will suffice
A mind will emerge
My dissertation is about emergent processes and the formation of complex patterns from simple founding principles such as displayed in Conway’s game of life.
Clocks drift and don’t tick
But we obsess about time
Let’s just tick as one
Dissertation Title: “Maintaining the Time in a Distributed System”
My dissertation was one of the first on global clock synchronization in a distributed system. It dealt with faulty clocks. Indeed, in the Xerox Research Internet where I tried it out, I found some clocks that ran backwards and others that ran 20% fast. The ideas in my dissertation were used by others (and patented by a company without my knowledge!) and is part of the Internet infrastructure.
Pipes sync in a line
Could hasten with confluence
University of Toronto
Thesis title: “Pipeline Threading of Legacy Applications for Commodity Multicores”
My research is on applying a re-purposed technique to provide performance gains for existing software on new multicore computers. Turns out there aren’t many easy answers, even small architectural differences can wildly vary the benefits possible.
Which one should I use?
George Mason University
Despite decades of work in evolutionary algorithms (EAs), much uncertainty remains about the advantages and disadvantages of using recombination or mutation. This thesis provides a theoretical and empirical study of recombination and mutation in EAs, in order to better characterize the roles of these operators.
will tell you more ’bout “f” than
just its integral.
ETH Zurich, Switzerland
My thesis, in Computer Science at the ETH Zurich, Switzerland, deals with the adaptive numerical computation of integrals (Adaptive Quadrature). The main result concerns explicitly constructing the underlying interpolation polynomial for a quadrature rule and using it to produce both better error estimates and re-use information after sub-dividing an interval.
It’s hard to measure
but it’s rewarding
University of Oregon
Dissertation Title: Measuring the Internet AS Graph and Its Evolution
The connection patterns between the networks that make up the Internet have changed over time, and data is available, but figuring out what might be missing is a hard problem. So we develop methods for analyzing this data with uncertainty, and we develop a few sample analysis methods to show the power of this technique.
