The Cube (ICICS 021)

UBC Computer Science Student Society

Welcome to the Computer Science Student Society, the student club for undergraduates at the UBC Department of Computer Science. We provide a social space where everyone’s welcome (in ICICS 021), run events, and represent your interests to the department. For more events you may be interested in, please see the department’s calendar. Please feel free to email us at [email protected].

The Cube Services Career Fair

CSSS Semi-Annual General Meeting (SAGM)

Categories: Event

Affect the future of the CSSS and the Cube! Breaking changes may occur, including redesigning the Cube, new academic impact, and future events.

If you have any questions about the CSSS or would like to give input about the club and discuss club matters, this is a great opportunity to do so. There will be FREE FOOD provided at the meeting.

We’ll be proposing a new VP Academic position at the meeting, moving towards students and the CSSS having an effect on the curriculum.

Industry Talk #1: Homomorphic Encryption

Categories: Event

Homomorphic Encryption for Privacy-Preserving Machine Learning

Speaker: Michael Reid

As machine learning has evolved, the systems that train and predict on machine learning models have increasingly become outsourced from those that own the data; for example, a company training its data in a public cloud like AWS, or Facebook giving away its user data to its partners. As an end user of these systems, we want to experience the personalized benefits that training sophisticated machine learning models enables, but also want to make sure our data is secure and not visible to unknown third parties. In this talk, we will look into how homomorphic encryption techniques can be used to allow neural networks to train atop data sets without being able to see the data underneath. We will discuss both fully and somewhat homomorphic cryptosystems, as well as the ongoing research being done to apply these to neural networks.

Michael Reid is the co-founder of Nautilus Analytics Technologies, a company that is building privacy-preserving machine learning software for businesses in government, healthcare, and other security-focused sectors. Previously, Mike worked as a software engineer at Hootsuite, Splunk, and Amazon Web Services, dealing with both machine learning and large-scale, high-volume distributed systems.
