Professor Popa: Decentralized Security CS 294-163

David Schonenberg Uncategorized 0 Comments

Lectures: Tue/Thur 3:30pm – 4:59pm, 310 Soda Course description: Recently, there has been much excitement in both academia and industry around the notion of decentralized security, which refers to, loosely speaking, security mechanisms that do not rely on the trustworthyness of any central entity. In only a few years, this area has generated many beautiful cryptographic constructs as well as exciting systems with real-world adoption. The course will cover topics such as decentralized ledgers, blockchain/cryptocurrencies, decentralized access control, secure multi-party computation, federated learning, coopetitive learning, and others.   This is an advanced course, which will go deeply into both cryptography and systems. A solid foundation in cryptography is required, and a similar foundation in systems is beneficial. Logistics: The course is …

New DARE Website Launched

David Schonenberg News 0 Comments

We are excited to announce the launch of RISELab’s DARE program. One of the most challenging barriers to participating in research for undergraduate students is reaching out to professors and finding a match that works for both the student and the professor.  DARE, founded by Professor Raluca Ada Popa and her students Wenting Zheng and Jessica Ji, acts as an active liaison to remove this barrier and make electrical engineering and computer science research more readily accessible, as well as to encourage diversity of thought in these growing fields. DARE strongly encourages women and traditionally under-represented groups to apply. Website: https://dare.berkeley.edu Raluca Ada Popa
