LECTURES THIS WEEK-

“Recent Advances in Wide-Area Surveillance: What Can We See Now?”- by Dr. Vijayan K. Asari, professor at the University of Dayton, Dayton, Ohio. Rapid advances made in the area of sensor technology have enabled the use of high end video acquisition systems to monitor areas that need to be under persistent surveillance. The images captured by data acquisition systems in an outdoor environment are affected by a host of factors that include light sources, camera characteristics, geometric positions and environmental conditions. The complexity of large variations in the appearance of the object and the background in a typical image causes the performance degradation of automatic detection and recognition algorithms. This presentation highlights various aspects of image analysis for automatic object detection and recognition in a wide area surveillance environment taking into account the constraints such as low resolution, lower frame rate, large variations in illumination, motion blurs, etc. Several feature extraction and exploitation strategies for distinguishable representation of data for accurate classification will be presented.   
Monday, Nov. 17th, 10:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m., ECSN 2.112

Repeatable Reverse Engineering with PANDA” – by Brendan Dolan-Gavitt, a postdoctoral researcher at Columbia University. PANDA is a new, open source dynamic analysis framework based on QEMU that has been built to facilitate whole-system reverse engineering. PANDA incorporates whole-system record and replay, taint analysis, lifting to LLVM, and support for emulating the Android platform. In this talk, I will describe how to use PANDA to speed up a number of reverse engineering tasks, including circumventing copyright protection in Starcraft, extracting censorship blacklists from an IM client, and understanding a use after free vulnerability in Internet Explorer. All of the code and data for our results is available on http://www.rrshare.org so others can replicate and extend our findings.
Friday, Nov. 21st, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., ECSS 2.410
