Passenger transportation was arguably the least innovative sector in our society over the past 80 years. Passenger travel has devolved into a monoculture where the single occupant vehicle dominates all other surface modes. We are now on the threshold of radical change. New mobility services such as Uber and Lyft, new propulsion technologies using electricity and hydrogen, and increasing vehicle......   More >

TRUST Security Seminar: The Ugly Reality of the Internet

Seminar: Top events | September 4 | 1-2 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall, Room 250


Nick Weaver, International Computer Science Institute

Team for Research in Ubiquitous Secure Technology (TRUST)


Ranging from firewalls and devices which can't understand fragments, to buggy (and vulnerable) NATs, to DNS servers which don't really support DNS, to a mass of HTTP proxies and in-path devices which can modify traffic, to a group of network adversaries which can and do attack traffic directly from the net, the Internet is a messy, complex landscape. Using Netalyzr, a widely used end-host......   More >

During the process of development, our body system coordinates the differentiation, behavior, function, and fate of individual cells to construct beautifully organized tissue structures. Delicately balanced and well-choreographed control of individual cells at various levels of transcription, translation, and cell signaling are involved in this process.

Recent advances in molecular biology......   More >
