    This talk will focus on an ongoing interdisciplinary research project that utilizes social scientific and computational methods to study the relationship between algorithmic personalization and online radicalization. Our overall objectives for this project are, first, to identify the technological, personal, relational, and cultural factors that contribute to radicalization of vulnerable populations on social media and, second, to develop tools that can identify and predict radicalization on social media.

    The Tor network is a popular system for privacy and freedom online. Millions of people use Tor every day, including journalists performing undercover investigations, intelligence agents covertly collecting information, activists evading government repression, and ordinary citizens protecting themselves against surveillance. The Tor network consists of around 5,600 volunteer-run relays in 85 countries, which collectively send about 200 Gbps of traffic.

    The interplay between discrete and continuous optimization has been an exciting theme in recent years. This talk will focus on submodular function maximization as a case study to demonstrate the power of this interplay. Some of the main results in this space have been obtained almost a decade ago. Recently there has been a new direction of interest, namely to find parallel and low-adaptivity algorithms. The talk will describe some of these recent developments. No prior background on submodular functions will be assumed.

    Software engineers have long been denied the label of “professional.” As a matter of law, this designation carries more than a vanity status; it bestows a special presumption of judicial deference to the professional’s judgment against complaints of malpractice. This issue has returned to the fore because the software industry has renewed its efforts to secure recognition as a “profession,” even as it has come under increasing scrutiny for the real-world harms it perpetuates.

    Recent developments on SMT solvers have become crucial to make program analysis techniques effective in practice. Despite their success, scalability is still an issue when applying these methods to large fragments of code. In order to address this problem, we propose a template-based (also known as constraint-based) approach using Max-SMT solvers. In particular, we present an automated compositional program verification technique for safety properties based on conditional inductive invariants.
