Title: WORKSHOP ON BIGDATA & CYBERSECURITY

"Social Recommendations for Personalized Fitness Assistance"

Wearable technology allows users to monitor their activity and pursue a healthy lifestyle through the use of embedded sensors. Such wearables usually connect to a mobile application that allows them to set their profile, and keep track of their goals. However, due to the relatively “high maintenance” of such applications, where a significant amount of user feedback is expected, users who are very busy, or not as self-motivated, stop using them after a while. It has been shown that accountability improves commitment to an exercise routine. In this talk we will discuss how we can use the knowledge we gain by applying machine learning techniques to personal activity data collected by such devices, while leveraging the power of social recommender systems, to provide a personalized fitness assistant that will keep end users motivated and active.

"Sound sensing using smartphones as a crowdsourcing approach"

We introduce the detection and visualization of the congestion situation based on the environmental sound being conducted by the lecturer. Especially, we introduce the attempts to read the differences in the characteristics of each city from the sound, while showing the visualization results of the environmental sound data which lecturers have been recording in Okayama City and Kurashiki City.

"Securing the Web with a Faceted Evaluation Transpiler"

Web programming is fraught with pitfalls for developers. Programming errors can lead to vulnerabilities such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting, and the loss of confidential information.

A better approach is to secure web content in a more systemic manner, so that web applications can be resilient even in the face of developer error. Faceted values achieve this goal by calculating multiple "views" of sensitive information. Whenever data might be used in an unsafe manner, the default view is used instead.

In this talk, we discuss faceted evaluation through the use of a JavaScript transpiler (source-to-source compiler). By rewriting JavaScript code to support faceted evaluation, web applications can be secured on both the client and the server, with no changes needed to the underlying JavaScript interpreters.

"Recent topics on smartphone security"

A recent overview of smartphone security, especially security as a program that needs to be considered in terms, many applications on Android. We will describe the security issues of WebView used in. Also, I will describe the research that the speaker is doing to make WebView secure, especially Sanno Hybrid application that uses WebView which he studied jointly with State University will be described with reference to FIG.
