Zoom Lecture: 91832419086
There has been extensive research on data provenance. Previous works were concerned with annotating the results of database (DB) queries with provenance information which is useful in explaining query results at various resolution levels. In this work, we track the lineage of tuples throughout their database lifetime. That is, we consider a scenario in which tuples (records) that are produced by a query may affect other tuple insertions into the DB, as part of a ...

Zoom Lecture: 99410484579
Many cryptographic APIs provide extra functionality that was not intended by the designers. In this seminar we discuss such an unintended functionality in the API of HMAC as implemented by Siemens and OpenSSL. HMAC authenticates a single message at a time with a single authentication tag. However, most HMAC implementations do not complain when extra data is added to the stream after a tag is computed. We call such primitives Incremental MACs. Though HMAC is ...

The end of Moore's law is driving the search for new techniques to improve system performance as applications continue to evolve rapidly and computing power demands continue to rise. One promising technique is to build more intelligent compilers. Compilers map high-level programs to lower-level primitives that run on hardware. During this process, compilers perform many complex optimizations to boost the performance of the generated code. These optimizations often require solving NP-Hard problems and dealing with ...

The counter-intuitive features of quantum mechanics make it possible to solve problems and perform tasks that are beyond the abilities of non-quantum (classical) computers and communication devices. In particular, quantum key distribution (QKD) protocols allow two participants (Alice and Bob) to achieve the classically-impossible task of generating a secret shared key even if their adversary is computationally unlimited. Unfortunately, the security promises of QKD are true only in theory; practical implementations of QKD deviate from ...

In Modern data centers, resources are usually virtualized. Applications running on those date centers are distributed over many virtual machines. For those applications, the data centers provide software defined infrastructure services for networking, storage, and security. When software defined services are running within the same CPU as the applications, they consume CPU resources on the expanse of the applications. Moreover, the data center security can be jeopardized NVIDIA Data Center Infrastructure Processing Unit (DPU) allow ...

Metabolic reprogramming is a hallmark of cancer, providing novel means to selectively target cancer cells, for precision medicine and early diagnosis. Understanding tumor-specific metabolic alterations facilitates the identification of induced dependency on specific enzymes whose inhibition selectively targets cancer cells. In addition, the altered metabolic activity of cancer cells, involving the consumption of metabolic nutrients and the secretion of byproducts from the tumor leaves metabolic traces that can be utilized for diagnostic purposes. Here, we ...

Recent theoretical work has shown that massively overparameterized neural networks are equivalent to kernel regressors that use Neural Tangent Kernels (NTKs). Experiments indicate that these kernel methods perform similarly to real neural networks. My work in this subject aims to better understand the properties of NTK and relate them to properties of real neural networks. In particular, I will argue that for input data distributed uniformly on the sphere NTK favors low frequency predictions over ...

In recent years, topological and geometric data analysis (TGDA) has emerged as a new and promising field for processing, analyzing and understanding complex data. Indeed, geometry and topology form natural platforms for data analysis, with geometry describing the ”shape” behind data; and topology characterizing / summarizing both the domain where data are sampled from, as well as functions and maps associated to them. In this talk, I will show how topological (and geometric ideas) can ...

Fairness has emerged as an important concern in automated decision-making in recent years, especially when these decisions affect human welfare. In this work, we study fairness in temporally extended decision-making settings, specifically those formulated as Markov Decision Processes (MDPs). Our proposed notion of fairness ensures that each state's long-term visitation frequency is more than a specified fraction. In an average-reward MDP setting, we formulate the problem as a bilinear saddle point program and, for a ...

A butterfly network consists of logarithmically many layers, each with a linear number of pre-specified nonzero weights. We propose to replace a dense linear layer in any neural network by an architecture based on the butterfly network. The proposed architecture significantly improves upon the quadratic number of weights required in a standard dense layer to nearly linear with little compromise in expressibility of the resulting operator. In a collection of wide variety of experiments, including ...

When matching non-rigid shapes, the regular or scale-invariant Laplace-Beltrami Operator (LBO) eigenfunctions could potentially serve as intrinsic descriptors which are invariant to isometric transformations. However, the computed eigenfunctions of two quasi-isometric surfaces could be substantially different. Such discrepancies include sign ambiguities and possible rotations and reflections within subspaces spanned by eigenfunctions that correspond to similar eigenvalues. Thus, without aligning the corresponding eigenspaces it is difficult to use the eigenfunctions as descriptors. In this talk, we ...

In virtual setups, guest virtual machines (VMs) perform their I/O through virtual I/O devices that are implemented by the hypervisor in software. There are two major flavors of virtual I/O devices. The first is ``emulation’’, which provides an interface identical to that of some preexisting physical I/O device, thus allowing the operating system (OS) inside the VM to use the original driver of the device, as is, unaware that it is in fact virtual (implemented ...

The Hebrew Bible (Tanach) has been extensively quoted by historical religious text and commentaries throughout history. Nowadays, many of these text resources are publicly available online. Yet, the Bible quotations within them are often partially identified if at all. Knowing the exact quotations may be highly beneficial to scholars interested in studying or investigating the Bible. We have developed and empirically analyzed a machine-learning solution for this task. End-to-end, our model is comprised of three ...

The quest for algorithms that enable cognitive abilities is an integral part of machine learning and appears in many facets, such as virtual assistant and visual reasoning. A cognitive system requires an effective approach to extract details and nuances from the multiple sensors that pound the devices' computational engine. To this end, we propose a novel form of attention mechanism, namely Factor Graph Attention, that operates on any data utilities and differentiates useful signals from ...

First, we audit implementations, and present timing leaks and authentication bypasses in EAP-pwd and WPA3 daemons. We then study Dragonfly's design and discuss downgrade and denial-of-service attacks. Our next and main results are ...

Clustering is a basic machine learning task. In this task, a stream of input items needs to be grouped into clusters, such that all items classified into the same cluster are closer to each other than to items classified to other clusters. Each cluster is centered around a centroid point, which may either be given as a parameter, or must be learned during the process in the case of unsupervised online learning. This work studies ...

For nearly two millennia, the word "geometry" was synonymous with Euclidean geometry, as no other types of geometry existed. Euclid's monopoly came to an end in the 19th century, where multiple examples of non-Euclidean geometries were shown. However, these studies quickly diverged into disparate fields, with mathematicians debating the relations between different geometries and what defines one. A way out of this pickle was shown by Felix Klein in his Erlangen Programme, which proposed approaching ...

Specifically, we focus on the frontier problem of whether a DNF augmented with an additional layer of parity (XOR) gates, can approximate the inner product function. We show that the existence of such a small circuit, would have unexpected general implications for interactive variants of the Data Streaming and Communication Complexity models.

The lion's share of the work on program synthesis focuses on new ways to perform the search, but hardly any of this research effort has found its way into the hands of users. We wish to use synthesis ...

My primary goal in this fringe direction of research is to develop a simple, intuitive formal framework for the automatic representation of simplified shapes and materials that can support Hyper-Realism in a wide variety of rendering applications. I observe that with the emphasis on the physical laws in rendering systems, (1) the focus increasingly shifts away from how users perceive the virtual environment, (2) rendering becomes prohibitively difficult to realize desired global illumination effects in ...
