This time last year we saw our 40,000th alumnus cross the stage and we celebrated every graduating student in the Faculty of Mathematics. We can’t do that for the Class of 2020 because of COVID-19. This year’s event will be virtual as we celebrate the 1,200 mathies who deserve a memorable finale for their years of hard work and diligent study. We hope to hold an in-person ceremony as soon as we are able.

Monday, June 8, 2020 — 8:30 AM to Wednesday, June 10, 2020 — 11:30 AM EDT to Wednesday, June 10, 2020 - 11:30 am

Brittany Postnikoff, Master’s candidate
David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science

This thesis establishes the new field of Robot Social Engineering. We define Robot Social Engineering as the use of social abilities and techniques by robots to manipulate others in order to achieve a goal. We build the field of Robot Social Engineering on the foundations of Human-Robot Interaction research on social robots as well as information security research on social engineering.
