PhD Thesis Defense: Sensor Side-Channel Implications on User Privacy: Analysis and Mitigation

Speaker: Sashank Narain, PhD Candidate, College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University

In this thesis, we demonstrate two attacks that exploit motion sensors on smartphones to infer accurate private information about the users such as their typed passwords and their significant locations. To counter our demonstrated attacks and other similar sensor side-channel/location based attacks, we also propose the design and implementation of a mitigation framework, called MATRIX, for the Android ecosystem.

PhD Thesis Defense: An Affect-Aware Dialogue System for Counseling

Speaker: Lazlo Ring, PhD Candidate, College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University

In this thesis, Ring will present a novel approach that allows computers to automatically adapt and respond to a user’s emotional state.  Informed by an analysis of empathic communication in the context of human-human counseling, he developed a theoretical framework that integrates empathy into automated healthcare systems.

Network Science Institute: Social Network Experiments

Speaker: Dr. Nicholas A. Christakis, MD, PhD, MPH, Director of Human Nature Lab at Yale University 

Human beings choose their friends, and often their neighbors, and co-workers, and we inherit our relatives; and each of the people to whom we are connected also does the same, such that, in the end, we humans assemble ourselves into face-to-face social networks with particular structures.  Why do we do this?  And how might an understanding of human social network structure and function be used to intervene in the world to make it better?
