Cyber security is the topic for this Facebook Live audience Q&A

Congratulations to Prof. Agrawal for this distinguished recognition from one of the world's foremost scientific societies!

Winner of the 2016 SIGKDD Ph.D. Dissertation Runner Up Award 

Augmented reality (AR) is one of today's most fascinating and future-oriented areas of computer science and technology. By overlaying computer-generated information on views of the real world, AR amplifies human perception and cognition in remarkable new ways. Do you like the virtual first-down line in football games on TV? That's AR. And AR apps are rapidly coming to billions of smartphones, too. Working in AR requires knowledge from diverse disciplines, including computer vision, computer graphics, and human-computer interaction (HCI).

Two National Science Foundation grants awarded to Prof. Belding provide support for her research. 

Assistant Professor and cryptographer Stefano Tessaro receives National Science Foundation CAREER Award for "The Theoretical Foundations of Symmetric Cryptography." 

In a competition considered the Olympics of hacking, UC Santa Barbara’s resident hackers took home the bronze this year.

ACM is the world's largest educational and scientific computing society

During the Winter 2017 quarter, Dr. Mirza will be teaching CMPSC 16 (Problem Solving with Computers-I), and conducting a pilot tutor-training program. Prior to UCSB, Dr. Mirza was an Assistant Adjunct Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at UC San Diego, where she received her PhD and MS in Computer Engineering. 

UCSB Computer Science welcomes Professor William Wang  

Previously, Benji served as CS Undergraduae Program Coordinator and Advisor.

Computer Science names Contracts and Grants Manager

The Department of Computer Science welcomes Margaret Salisbury to the role of Undergraduate Advisor

 

Benji talks about his SmartFarm research and all things UCSB.

Computer Science Professor Chandra Krintz recently gave a TEDx talk entitled Transforming us into a society of food producers. In her talk, which can be found here, she discusses how the same data analysis and prediction techniques used by tech companies such as Amazon and Google for targeted advertisement and marketing could be used to make farmers and ranchers more productive.
