Face Recognition, HR and Automation, Sustainable Software Development, and Interaction Analysis
- Accessorize to a Crime — We define and investigate a novel class of attacks: attacks that are physically realizable and inconspicuous, and allow an attacker to evade recognition or impersonate another individual. We develop a systematic method to automatically generate such attacks, which are realized through printing a pair of eyeglass frames. When worn by the attacker whose image is supplied to a state-of-the-art face-recognition algorithm, the eyeglasses allow her to evade being recognized or to impersonate another individual.

- No-Collar Workforce — the HR challenges posed by the addition of automation to a white-collar workforce.
- Oncall and Sustainable Software Development (Charity Majors) — Services need owners, not operators. […] If I ask a room of folks who among them works on building software, and then ask the same room which of them are part of the oncall rotation, I should see about the same people raising their hands.
- Look Who’s Talking — some nice NLP and graph structuring of the interactions in the NZ Parliament, which might be applicable to your favorite corpus of interactions (Slack, email, etc.). See also slides.
