Recent Events on Security, Privacy and Machine-Learning

The TerraSwarm Security and Privacy Meeting, September 16-17, was hosted by United Technologies at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY. The event attracted more than 30 attendees, including faculty and students from five universities (Caltech, UC Berkeley, UCSD, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania) as well as industry sponsors.

Participants were exposed to a mix of presentations by speakers from industry and academia, interactive demonstrations from RIT security personnel, and open discussions on topics of security and privacy for TerraSwarm applications. The breakout sessions identified threat models, security and privacy goals, and advances required to achieve these goals at all levels of the swarm architecture.

Preceding the Security & Privacy Meeting, a one-day Machine Learning Hands-On Workshop was offered. The goal of this hands-on workshop was to familiarize attendees with the work being done in Machine Learning within TerraSwarm. New faculty member, Jeff Bilmes (UWash) provided an overview of the Machine Learning Tools available. Ilge Akkaya (UCB) provided an overview of Ptolemy models for Machine Learning and Optimization for the swarm. After presentations, teams of 2 to 4 developed Machine Learning applications using various components of the SwarmOS.
