Let's catch up on the wide array of activities since the site visit by
having another project meeting. Two requests here.
First, fill out this Doodle poll <http://doodle.com/poll/494bcrb32mtzbq6n>
to indicate which days you're free for a meeting during the spring
semester. (I started with Fridays for now. If they don't work, I'll try
another day of the week.)
Second, email me if you have a topic that you want your students to present
at the project meeting. Anything is fair game; of particular interest
though are (1) talks by departing postdocs and (2) work that addresses the
concerns expressed in the site visit report, which I summarize below.
- Realize our "mix and match" vision with UC by showing alternative
realizations for components that can be substituted with each other
securely and that have different functionality/performance tradeoffs.
- Integrate the theoretical and systems-focused research.
- Leverage the unique opportunities provided by our collaboration with
- Technology transfer: go beyond the software prototyping stage and
produce something used by industry/the world.
- Replace indistinguishability obfuscation (iO) with less heavyweight
tools, possibly by considering stronger trust models and assumptions.
