Fundamentals of Cloud Security

March 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Free

Join us as we discuss how to effectively detect and respond to threats within your AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud environments. Proliferation of cloud has fundamentally changed the way applications are developed, deployed and secured. Security teams not only need visibility & control over what is deployed in the cloud but they also need to protect cloud infrastructure against advanced threats such as account & access key compromises, malicious insider, network intrusion and data exfiltration. In this talk, we will…

Towards Vision Zero: Intelligent Intersection Infrastructure to enhance safe operations of (self-driving) cars

March 23 @ 4:00 pm
Davis Hall, UC Berkeley Room 502
Berkeley, CA 94720 United States

Vision Zero plans concentrate on intersections that present a demanding environment. Challenges arise from complex vehicle trajectories; absence of lane markings to guide vehicles; split phases that prevent determining who has the right of way; conflicting vehicle approaches with no line of sight; illegal movements; simultaneous interactions among pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles. Unfortunately, many of the safety-improving tools that are available for practitioners are inadequate to address such challenges, and cannot support a roadway system with zero fatalities. Infrastructure-to-vehicle (I2V)…
