Tech Utopia, UEM Jaipur Technical Festival and UEM Jaipur ACM Student Chapter in association are organizing UEM Techutopia ACM Foreign Talk on the topic "Computation of emotions"

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Peter Robinson is Professor of Computer Technology in the Computer Laboratory at the University of Cambridge in England, where he leads work on computer graphics and interaction.Professor Robinson's research concerns problems at the boundary between people and computers. This involves investigating new technologies to enhance communication between computers and their users, and new applications to exploit these technologies. The main focus for this is human-computer interaction, where he has been leading work for some years on the use of video and paper as part of the user interface. The idea is to develop augmented environments in which everyday objects acquire computational properties through user interfaces based on video projection and digital cameras. This led to work on desk-size projected displays and tangible interfaces. Recent work has explored applications of computer vision to enhancing driver experiences in semi-autonomous vehicles. Professor Robinson is a Fellow of Gonville & Caius College where he previously studied for a first degree in Mathematics and a PhD in Computer Science under Neil Wiseman. He is a Chartered Engineer, a Fellow of the British Computer Society and member of the Association for Computing Machinery.
ABSTRACT:
The importance of emotional expression as part of human communication has been understood since the seventeenth century, and has been explored scientifically since Charles Darwin and others in the nineteenth century. Recent advances in Psychology have greatly improved our understanding of the role of affect in communication, perception, decision-making, attention and memory. At the same time, advances in technology mean that it is becoming possible for machines to sense, analyse and express emotions. We can now consider how these advances relate to each other and how they can be brought together to influence future research in perception, attention, learning, memory, communication, decision-making and other applications. This talk will survey recent advances in theories of emotion and affect, their embodiment in computational systems, the implications for general communications, and broader applications. The combination of new results in psychology with new techniques of computation on new technologies will enable new applications in commerce, education, entertainment, security, therapy and everyday life. However, there are important issues of privacy and personal expression that must also be considered.

ACM-UEMJ Presents Eminent Speaker Webinar on the topic "Security and Trust"

BRIEF BIOGRAPHY OF THE SPEAKER:
Kaarthik Sivakumar is a Principal Engineer at Cisco Systems, working on software for enterprise products. He has worked at Cisco for more than 12 years, spanning the areas of routing and forwarding, distributed systems, broadband gateways, optical networks, and secure and trustworthy systems. He spends his time working on trustworthy systems for enterprise platforms, as well as mentoring and training young engineers. Kaarthik holds 2 patents and has published blogs on the security technologies in Cisco’s Service Provider products.
SYNOPSIS:
Absolute security is a myth. You can always strive for it, but nobody will ever get there. Any time a new security mechanism is added, a new way to break it is not very far behind. Ask yourself how well “security'” has worked in the industry so far. You have to assume that your device, your network and your data has already been breached or will be soon. In the security world, this is the best position to take. In such a scenario, what you need is the ability to establish, measure, validate and report on Integrity and Trust. How do you build a model and create methods to establish trust in a device and, by extension, your entire network? Can you trust that your device and your network have not been tampered with and how do you detect when it has been? In this talk we will look at some recent attacks, what we can do to make it harder for the attackers, and ways to establish Trust in and verify Integrity of a device and the network. We will also look at specific technologies that can be used to practically measure and report on trust status.

ABOUT THE TOPIC:
The Boeing 737 MAX aircraft has been grounded worldwide after two fatal crashes with similar characteristics within five months of each other. Lion Air JT610 Crashed 13 minutes after takeoff from Jakarta on Tuesday 9 October 2018 and Ethiopian Airlines ET 302 crashed 6 minutes after takeoff from Addis Abba in Ethiopia on Sunday 10 March 2019. In both incidents, pilots could not control the aircraft shortly after takeoff, resulting in tragic crashes with no survivors. Even after the second crash, the U.S. FAA did not ground the airplane for many days, well after the rest of the world had already done so. In its effort to compete with Airbus A320 Neo, instead of designing a new aircraft, Boeing devised a low-cost alternative based on modifying its 50-year old 737 design. The newer high-bypass turbofan engines were too large to fit under the wing of the low-to-the-ground 737 design; thus, the MAX design moved the engines forward and up from the position on previous 737 models, but that created destabilization with a tendency to pitch up. To mitigate this, Boeing created a computer software system called MCAS (Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System) that takes over control of the airplane from the pilots and pushes the nose down, based on data input from a single sensor. Erroneous data from the single sensor invoked MCAS in both crashes. Due to concerns about financial losses, there is corporate pressure to resume the use of the 737 MAX for commercial passenger flight as soon as possible, notwithstanding continued safety concerns. Some argue that the 737 MAX should never be allowed to carry the flying public again and that it cannot be fixed because it is not merely a software issue, but stems from an inherently unstable airframe design. Examination of the many factors that led to these disastrous consequences illuminates disquieting ethical issues of corporate behavior and lack of government oversight. For the time ever, civil aviation authorities around the world may not allow ithe 737 MAX into their airspace even if the U.S. FAA deems it to be airworthy. A careful deep analysis reveals many issues that have critically important lessons for all engineers who do or will work for large corporations or government organizations. This raises serious issues while computer science hurtles at breakneck speed towards increased automation of vehicles. The lecture will include first-hand information about the first of the two crashes from the speaker’s meeting in Jakarta with the head of the accident investigation committee there. The speaker is Professor of the Graduate School at the University of California, Berkeley where he is a Warren and Marjorie Minner Faculty Fellow in Engineering Ethics and Professional and Social Responsibility.

UEMJ ACM Student Chapter organised a DISTINGUISHED SPEAKER PROGRAM on:- SNAzzy:SOCIAL NETWORK ANALYSIS FOR TELECOM BUSINESS INTELIGENCE

SNAzzy is for analysing the social networks induced by calling patterns of the customers of Telecom Service Providers. It builds a social network of the telecom subscribers from the “who-calls-whom” CDR data. By analyzing the social network thus constructed, we can derive several useful insights about the customers’ interaction amongst each others and its implications. SNAzzy can find communities; find targets for campaigns of socially influenced product, predict potential churners, determine the ideal targets for acquisition from competition and assign importance score to the customers. his can help identifying group targets for promotions and campaigns. SNAzzy can also analyse churn behaviour to identify potential churners. Using SNAzzy, one can identify potential acquisition targets from the competition. Dr.Amit A. Nanavati is a Senior Technical Lead for Cognitive Automation Solutions at IBM. He joined IBM Research India in 2000 and has since worked on projects in ecommerce, data mining, telecom and mobile.
