Interpreting Drawings for 3D Design (D3)

Start date: Feb 1, 2017, End date: Jan 31, 2022,

Designers draw extensively to externalize their ideas and communicate with others. However, drawings are currently not directly interpretable by computers. To test their ideas against physical reality, designers have to create 3D models suitable for simulation and 3D printing. However, the visceral and approximate nature of drawing clashes with the tediousness and rigidity of 3D modeling. As a res ...

Efficient Formally Secure Compilers to a Tagged Architecture (SECOMP)

Start date: Jan 1, 2017, End date: Dec 31, 2021,

Severe low-level vulnerabilities abound in today’s computer systems, allowing cyber-attackers to remotely gain full control. This happens in big part because our programming languages, compilers, and architectures were designed in an era of scarce hardware resources and too often trade off security for efficiency. The semantics of mainstream low-level languages like C is inherently insecure, and e ...
