  • 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM Barry Ace: Coalesce, Mixed Media Installation (Opening)

    Join us to celebrate the final exhibition of the season.

    Coalesce presents a fusion of distinct Anishinaabeg aesthetics of the Great Lakes’ region with the refuse from Western society’s technological and digital age. This entanglement of materials intentionally shifts the object’s materiality and its accepted paradigm within the physical world. Through this integration and juxtaposition of recognizable Anishinaabeg materials used in Anishinaabeg material culture (e.g. glass beads, porcupine quills), with contemporary electronic materials (e.g. capacitors and resistors), the exhibition will challenge viewers to reject and re-examine notions of cultural status.

    10:00 AM - 4:30 PM Foundations in Teaching and Learning - Certificate

    Foundations in Teaching and Learning Certificate is a series of hands-on workshops to gain transferable teaching skills for undergraduates. Transferable skills associated with teaching are present in many aspects of our lives. From explaining a concept to a peer, tutoring a friend, to coaching a soccer team, teaching can take various forms. The Foundations in Teaching and Learning certificate is an opportunity for undergraduate students to gain a foundation for success in various teaching opportunities they encounter on a daily basis. This certificate will help you identify the skills associated with teaching and learning activities and communicate them to future employers, colleagues, and mentors. You will have the opportunity to put the skills you develop into practice in a safe and supportive environment through hands-on activities and microteaching sessions.

    Register for the session.

    Title

    Putting Machine Learning to Work for Digital Forensics

    Abstract

    Digital devices and connectivity are creating a data tsunami for investigators in the law enforcement and corporate communities. Not only has the popularity of chat and email applications resulted in a massive spike of text-based conversations; but an increasing number of devices (smartphones, digital cameras, other IoT devices, etc.) also facilitate the easy capture of photos and videos. As a result, the number of pictures and messages that may appear in a case has grown exponentially, making it difficult for forensic examiners, investigators and analysts to keep up. The manual analysis of the evidence for context and relevance, combined with report building, can add significant time to an investigation. Magnet.AI allows an examiner or investigator to better prioritize their time in an investigation, and find potentially relevant evidence faster than they could through manual review. In this talk we’ll introduce Magnet Forensics, a Waterloo-based software company, and how we’re helping to tackle this problem. As well, we’ll discuss how we’ve applied machine learning techniques to assist in the analysis.
