Cheriton School of Computer Science Professor Jesse Hoey has had a curious career trajectory.
His academic life began with an undergraduate degree in physics, followed by a master’s in physical oceanography, then a PhD in computer science with specialization in artificial intelligence. He even had a stint working with occupational therapists as part of his postdoctoral studies, where he applied his expertise in AI to develop assistive technologies for people with dementia.
Media, government, and industry commonly frame security and privacy as diametrically opposed: protecting one requires sacrificing the other.
Privacy, Infrastructures, Policy brought together researchers with international speakers from journalism, national security, academia and the corporate world to challenge these misconceptions. A central thread of each of the talks is the design, implementation, and benefits of privacy-enhancing social and technological infrastructures.
Computer scientists at Waterloo’s David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science have found a novel approach that significantly improves the storage efficiency and output speed of computer systems.
Current data storage systems use only one storage server to process information, making them slow to retrieve information to display for the user. A backup server only becomes active if the main storage server fails.
Undergraduate students Steven Feng and Shannon Veitch have each received a prestigious honorable mention for their research from the Computing Research Association. The annual CRA awards program recognizes undergraduate students from universities across North America who show outstanding research potential in an area of computing science.
