  2. Soteria: Automated IoT Safety and Security Analysis | USENIX

    Broadly defined as the Internet of Things (IoT), the growth of commodity devices that integrate physical processes with digital systems have changed the way we live, play and work. Yet existing IoT platforms cannot evaluate whether an IoT app or environment is safe, secure, and operates correctly. In this paper, we present \Soteria, a static analysis system for validating whether an IoT app or IoT environment (collection of apps working in concert) adheres to identified safety, security, and functional properties. Soteria operates in three phases; (a) translation of platform-specific IoT source code into an intermediate representation (IR), (b) extracting a state model from the IR, (c) applying model checking to verify desired properties. We evaluate Soteria on 65 SmartThings market apps through 35 properties and find nine (14%) individual apps violate ten (29%) properties. Further, our study of combined app environments uncovered eleven property violations not exhibited in the isolated apps. Lastly, we demonstrate Soteria on MalIoT, a novel open-source test suite containing 17 apps with 20 unique violations.

  3. Research Resilience Under Quarantine | Simons Institute Polylogues

    On March 16, 2020, the Simons Institute closed its doors temporarily in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. All of the Institute’s activities migrated online — research programs, workshops, workshops, collaboration meetings, even daily tea.

    In this episode of Simons Institute Polylogues, Director Shafi Goldwasser interviewed a group of program organizers and participants about research resilience under quarantine.

    Featuring: Shweta Agrawal (IIT Madras), Zvika Brakerski (Weizmann Institute), Vinod Vaikuntanathan (MIT), Umesh Vazirani (UC Berkeley), Thomas Vidick (Caltech), Hoeteck Wee (ENS Paris and NTT Research), and Henry Yuen (University of Toronto).

  4. What Do Algorithmic Fairness and COVID-19 Case-Severity Prediction Have in Common?

    In this episode of Simons Institute Polylogues, Shafi Goldwasser (Director, Simons Institute) interviews Guy Rothblum (Weizmann Institute) about a new research collaboration applying techniques from the field of algorithmic fairness to determine which patients are most likely to develop severe cases of COVID-19.

  5. How CRISPR Can Be Used to Fight COVID-19 | Amanpour and Company

    The World Health Organization has said that the best way to tackle this virus is to test, test, test. This is a call to action for pioneering biochemist Dr. Jennifer Doudna and her colleagues at UC Berkeley. They aim to use their biology labs to test up to 2,000 samples per day. Dr. Doudna co-invented the gene editing tool CRISPR, which she hopes will assist her in the battle against COVID-19. She joins Walter Isaacson to discuss.

    Originally aired on March 30, 2020.

  6. Jonathan Eisen: Meet your microbes

    Our bodies are covered in a sea of microbes — both the pathogens that make us sick and the "good" microbes, about which we know less, that might be keeping us healthy. At TEDMED, microbiologist Jonathan Eisen shares what we know, including some surprising ways to put those good microbes to work.

  7. How CRISPR lets us edit our DNA | Jennifer Doudna

    Geneticist Jennifer Doudna co-invented a groundbreaking new technology for editing genes, called CRISPR-Cas9. The tool allows scientists to make precise edits to DNA strands, which could lead to treatments for genetic diseases … but could also be used to create so-called "designer babies." Doudna reviews how CRISPR-Cas9 works — and asks the scientific community to pause and discuss the ethics of this new tool.

  8. Meet Mike Eisen | Podcasts | Naked Scientists

    In 2019, eLife appointed UC Berkeley geneticist Mike Eisen as the new Editor-in-Chief. His role is to drive the on-going development of eLife and steer the journal through the evolving landscape of science publishing. Ever since his institutional library thwarted his efforts, over 20 years ago, to download papers for his research project, Eisen has been a powerful proponent of

  9. Social Intelligence with Blaise Aguera y Arcas - #340

    Today we’re joined by Blaise Aguera y Arcas, a distinguished scientist at Google. We had the pleasure of catching up with Blaise at NeurIPS last month, where he was invited to speak on “Social Intelligence.” In our conversation, we discuss:

    Blaise’s role at Google, where he leads the Cerebra team. Their approach to machine learning at the company, and how they differ from the more forward-facing Google Brain team. Blaise gives us a look into his presentation, discussing today’s ML landscape. The gap between AI and ML/DS research, what it means and why it exists. The difference between intelligent systems and what we would deem to be “actual intelligence.” What does optimizing truly mean when training models? Check out the complete show notes for this episode at twimlai.com/talk/340.
