OpenTechTable #15 Kubernetes und Domain Specific Hacking

opentechtableWir freuen uns auf das 15. OpenTechTable meeting im März und laden alle recht herzlich dazu ein.

Herzlicher Dank gilt unserem Host Alturos Destinations im Lakeside B03 für die Bereitstellung der Räumlichkeiten und den Vortragenden Gerhard Schaden sowie Marcel Bricman.

Es erwarten uns zwei hoch interessante Themen.

  • Gerhard wird sein umfangreiches Praxiswissen über das Verwalten und deployen von containerized applications sowie Erfahrungswerte zum Einsatz von Docker mit uns teilen.
  • Marcel präsentiert wie Alturos mit SLED die gesamte Infrastruktur möglichst barrierefrei an die Fingerspitzen ihrer Entwickler bringt. Das macht anderenfalls prohibitiv komplexe Entwicklung kostengünstig und agil. Besonders QA, Operations und Prototyping profitieren davon im saisonalen Spitzenlastbetrieb.

Wie immer bitten wir um eine Anmeldung beim Facebook Event um die Teilnehmerzahl abschätzen zu können.

Review: Is Your Software Development Process Green? [Slides]

The review of the TEWI colloquia of Csaba Szabó from February 7, 2018 comprises the slides.

Slides:

Abstract

Like with Bio products, the world is developing to become a more nature-aware ecosystem. The green initiative defines two main goals: reduce energy consumption and use basic natural sources in electrical energy production.

This lecture focuses on energy consumption of working software and its development processes, where each development phase plays a significant role. Considering any software development process, the energy is being consumed while problem analysis, constructing and evaluating the code as well. Software or hardware tools have to be used to implement energy consumption monitoring for software run at the top of selected operating systems and for evaluation of the energy consumption. Usual usage scenarios are to monitor energy usage of selected software. We will also look at the possibility to use these tools to measure how green is the process that produced the programs.

Review: Affective Personalization: from Psychology to Algorithms [Slides]

The review of the TEWI colloquia ofDr. Marko Tkalčič from December 21, 2017 comprises the slides.

Slides:

Abstract

The talk will cover the research carried out by the author in the domain of psychologically-driven personalized systems. In order to be truly personalized a system needs to understand the user. Current systems employ data-driven models, such as recommendations based on past ratings, clicks or purchases. However, psychologically-grounded models appear to have potential for better personalized systems. The author will cover models of emotions and personality, the unobtrusive acquisition thereof through social media crawling, video processing and machine learning and their use in personalization algorithms.

Rückblick: Winter Game Jam

Der 1st Winter Game Jam an der Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt startete am Freitag, dem 15. Dezember mit zwei Fokusvorträgen und der anschließenden Bekanntgabe des Themas. Drei Wörter „Create, Star & Conversion“ führten zu 13 Gruppen, die bis Sonntag Abend an ihren Spielen arbeiteten . Der Game Jam war mit 70 Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmern der bisher Größte in Klagenfurt. Die Bandbreite der entstandenen Spiele zeugt von der Interdisziplinarität und Diversität des Publikums: Es gab unter anderem ein Brettspiel, Strategiespiele & Simulatoren, einen Acht-Personen-Multiplay-Shooter, Jump & Runs und interactive Stories. Alle 13 Spiele können hier gespielt bzw. heruntergeladen werden. Fotos vom Event finden sich auf Flickr und Videos auf YouTube. Die Rückmeldungen waren durchwegs positiv und viele Jammerinnen und Jammer planen beim nächsten Mal wieder mitzumachen.

1st Winter Game Jam

Der Termin für den nächsten Jam ist bereits fixiert und die Freiwilligen für das Organisationsteam haben sich auch wieder gefunden. Der 5th Klagenfurt Game Jam findet vom 27.-29. April 2018 statt.

On Digitalized Electrical Energy Systems: Emerging Cyber Security Threats and Mitigations

Dr. Paul Smith | December 5, 2017 | 14.00 p.m. | E.1.42

Abstract

To enable the increased integration of renewable energy sources and the creation of new energy services, our electrical energy systems are being digitalized (i.e., we are creating the so-called smart grid). This digitalization has many potential benefits, but it also introduces new cyber security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by malicious actors. In this talk, we will look at a relatively new form of threat that uses advanced attack techniques to achieve a malicious goal, which results in disruption to power supply. The most notable example of this form of threat took place in the Ukraine in December 2015. Having looked at this threat, the talk will continue by giving an overview of a number of solutions that were developed in the EU-funded SPARKS project (https://project-sparks.eu). The talk will conclude with a discussion on future research directions.

Bio

Dr. Paul Smith is a Senior Scientist in the Center for Digital Safety and Security at AIT Austrian Institute of Technology.
He received his PhD in Computing from Lancaster University, UK in September 2003. Paul’s research is targeted at developing applied solutions to ensuring the security and resilience of critical information infrastructures. More specifically, in recent years, his researched has focused on securing future digitalized energy systems. Solutions have focused on approaches to risk management, anomaly detection, secure architecture specification, incident response, and resilience measurement. For each of these, his interests lie in understanding cyber-physical aspects of security and resilience. He has participated in a number of international research projects in this area, and has published articles on various aspects that relate to this core interest.
