Cardiolens. “Pulse and Vital Sign Measurement in Mixed Reality using a HoloLens”

5 days ago
Cardiography, quantitative measurement of the functioning of the heart, traditionally requires customized obtrusive contact sensors. Using new methods photoplethysmography and ballistocardiography signals can be captured using ubiquitous sensors, such as webcams and accelerometers. However, these signals are not visible to the unaided eye. We present Cardiolens – a mixed reality system that enables real-time, hands-free […]

Building Large-scale Production Systems for Latency-sensitive Applications

7 days ago
In today’s era of increased engagement with technology, the myriad interactive and latency-sensitive applications around us necessitate handling large-scale data quickly and efficiently. This talk focuses on designing and developing production-quality systems with particular attention to improving end-to-end latency and building massive-scale solutions. At large scale, providing low latency becomes increasingly challenging, with many issues […]

Getting Linked In to Data Science with Dr. Igor Perisic

1 week ago
Big data is a big deal, and if you follow the popular technical press, you’ll have heard all the metaphors: data is the new oil, the new bacon, the new currency, the new electricity. It’s even been called the new black. While data may not actually be any of these things, we can say this: […]

From Deep Learning of Disentangled Representations to Higher-level Cognition

2 weeks ago
One of the main challenges for AI remains unsupervised learning, at which humans are much better than machines, and which we link to another challenge: bringing deep learning to higher-level cognition. We review earlier work on the notion of learning disentangled representations and deep generative models and propose research directions towards learning of high-level abstractions. […]

Hand Representations for Typing in VR VR 2018

2 weeks ago
In IEEE VR 2018 Alphanumeric text entry is a challenge for Virtual Reality (VR) applications. VR enables new capabilities, impossible in the real world, such as an unobstructed view of the keyboard, without occlusion by the user’s physical hands. Several hand representations have been proposed for typing in VR on standard physical keyboards. However, to date, these […]

Fiat Cryptography: Automatic Correct-by-Construction Generation of Low-Level Cryptographic Code

1 month ago
Some of the most widely used cryptographic protocols, including TLS, depend on fast execution of modular big-number arithmetic. Cryptographic primitives are coded by an elite set of implementation experts, and most programmers are shocked to learn that performance-competitive implementations are rewritten from scratch for each new prime-number modulus and each significantly different hardware architecture. In […]

Building Scale VR: Creating Indoor 3D Maps & its Application to Simulation of Disaster Situations

1 month ago
It is useful to simulate disaster situations by reconstructing actual buildings in a virtual space to enable people using the buildings to learn how to act in a disaster situation before it occurs. Therefore, we are developing a disaster-simulation system that simulates various disaster situations by virtually reproducing the situation inside buildings to allow individuals […]

Digital Society: Panel Discussion

1 month ago
Artificial Intelligence has become a ubiquitous part of our daily lives, and this rise in AI applications has stimulated significant interest from the public, media, and policymakers. This increasing attention is often focused on the negative consequences of AI, often overlooking the societal benefits that AI can deliver. This workshop on “AI and Social Good” […]

Tiny Machine Learning: How Do You Make Good Predictors with As Few Bits As Possible?

2 months ago
We’ll cover several new and advanced topics in Machine Learning which should be of general interest. It comes after the Basic Machine Learning day and the ​Explore/Exploit day which should ramp people up to understand these lectures.  See more at www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/video/advanced-machine-learning-tiny-machine-learning-how-do-you-make-good-predictors-with-as-few-bits-as-possible/

Hitting the Nail on the Head: Interdisciplinary Research in Computer Networking

2 months ago
This is an exciting time in computer networking. The Internet is one of the most influential inventions of all time–a research experiment that, within our own lifetimes, escaped from the lab to become a global communications infrastructure. We see seemingly non-stop innovation in compelling services delivered over the Internet, end-host devices connected to the Internet, […]
