A team of Cornell computer science researchers—including associate professor Nate Foster; Eric Hayden Campbell, a fourth-year Ph.D. student and 2019 NSF Graduate Research Fellow; and Hossein Hojjat, a former postdoctoral student with Foster—presented new research on Avenir, a synthesis engine for software defined networks (SDNs), at USENIX NSDI ’21, the Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation. Their paper—“Avenir: Managing Data Plane Diversity with Control Plane Synthesis”—is the result of a collaboration with Infosys, in particular, Vignesh Ramamurthy and Kalicharan Vuppala.

A group of undergraduate students and Dean Kavita Bala were recently joined by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella to discuss the importance of creating inclusive and supportive work environments as well as the continued need to increase representation in the computer science field.

Nadella was virtually visiting Cornell as part of the university’s Hatfield Lecture series, where he also spoke with Cornell President Martha Pollack about a future where the boundaries between tech, work, and social issues dissolve.

Karen Levy, assistant professor in information science, offers thoughtful commentary on a decision by Match Group — which owns Tinder, OKCupid, and Match.com — to make it easier for users of its apps to run background checks on potential partners.

Karen Levy, assistant professor in information science, has an excellent editorial published online at the New York Times this morning. In it, Levy offers thoughtful commentary on a decision by Match Group — which owns Tinder, OKCupid, and Match — to make it easier for users of its apps to run background checks on potential partners.

"If we normalize the practice of building a dossier of external data points on a person to avoid the risk of deception, we might upend an important aspect of creating close connections," Levy writes. "Introducing this level of data use into the intimate sphere seems at odds with how we typically learn about one another — gradually, and with the benefit of context."

Anna Evtushenko, doctoral student in Information Science, wrote "Benchmark," a play that will premiere virtually through the Schwartz Center beginning this Friday.

Add "playwright" to the long list of talents from our Info Sci students.

"Benchmark" — a play written by Anna Evtushenko, doctoral student in Info Sci — will be streamed online through the Schwartz Center this Friday and Saturday, March 26 and 27. Free tickets can be reserved at https://schwartztickets.universitytickets.com/

At the intersection of Evtushenko's passions for information science and playwriting, “Benchmark” is a play about a woman who relies on technology to preserve her memories, and what happens when that lifeline is severed.

Show times are:
7:30 p.m. (EST) Friday, March 26
2 p.m. (EST) Saturday, March 27

Way to go, Anna! 👏

Info Sci's Karen Levy talks to Marketplace about a pilot program on Tinder that would allow dating-app users to run background checks on potential dates.

Catch Karen Levy, assistant professor of information science and adjunct professor of law, on Marketplace? Asked to weigh in on a pilot program that would allow dating-app users to run background checks on potential dates, Levy says it’s understandable that people want to know whether a potential date has a history of violence. However, it’s hard to determine where one’s right to safety infringes on rights to privacy.

Info Sci's René Kizilcec is among a team of Cornell and Arizona State researchers that crunched data from an online-learning platform to better understand user membership and engagement in the aftermath of pandemic lockdowns.

Among the team's findings: a 38-percent increase in new users and a 6-percent increase in engagement among existing users of the DataCamp platform. And — this is key — the increases were evident across all demographic groups.

Time constraints are one of the big reasons people drop out of online learning. But with so many people stuck indoors with fewer things to do during pandemic lockdowns, online learning saw a bump in popularity.

A research team including René Kizilcec, assistant professor of information science and director of the Future of Learning Lab, has found that the staggered adoption of nonessential business closures led to a 38 percent increase in new users to DataCamp, an online platform for learning programming. They also found a 6 percent bump in engagement among existing DataCamp users.

These increases were evident across all demographic groups, an important finding that suggests online platforms can provide an accessible and inclusive environment for learning new skills – regardless of demographic background.

The application deadline for SoNIC 2021 has been extended to Thursday, March 4. This means YOU have a couple more days to get your application in for this weeklong summer program that targets increasing participation of underrepresented minorities at the Ph.D. level in computer science.

📌 Eligibility: Sophomore, Junior, Senior, or Masters student in Computer Science (CS), Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), Physics, or Math. Must be a student studying in the US or Puerto Rico.

📌 About SoNIC: During a weeklong workshop, participants will understand cloud computing starting from the bottom of the networking stack from photons of lambda (fiber-optic) networks to the Internet Protocol to application performance. Participants will take away an appreciation for cloud computing and network research with Cornell faculty and a taste to do research with state-of-the-art facilities at a top institution like Cornell University.
