The Formalization and Representation of Expert Knowledge with Visual Analytics to Improve Product Quality in Serial Manufacturing Processes

December 09th, 2021 | 11:00 pm |  online

Advances in new technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and big data analytics are enabling a new generation of smart manufacturing processes. These technologies allow the efficient tracking of the quality of produced parts along every step in the manufacturing process.
Here, sophisticated measurement equipment forms interconnected IoT networks, where the “smartness” level depends to great extent on how organizations can leverage data-driven approaches to create value of resulting big datasets and to support human experts with their high-cognition analysis tasks. In this regard, Visual Analytics (VA) can help to integrate human experts into the visual exploration of IoT data by augmenting analytical reasoning capabilities together with model-supported and custom-designed visualization interfaces. Thus, in this thesis, we analyze the role of VA in serial manufacturing processes. Specifically, we aim to examine how such visualization approaches can be used to formalize and represent expert knowledge to make it readily accessible for the development of data-driven approaches, which show great potential in improving serial manufacturing processes. In doing so, we present results from four design study projects in collaboration with a German manufacturer of electric vehicles. Our results indicate that VA shows great potential in augmenting human analytical reasoning processes of knowledge-intensive tasks. Furthermore, we outline how features, models, and especially labels can be leveraged by organizations as explicit knowledge products to be shared among organizational members and leveraged to engage in sophisticated data-driven approaches.

Lord of the Ring: Privilege Escalation by Exploiting the Linux Kernel

December 10th, 2021 | 12:00 -14:00 |  i12

 

The exploitation of vulnerabilities in the Linux Kernel allows unprivileged users to gain root access and compromise an entire operating system. Kernel maintainers have developed and integrated a plethora of mitigations to make exploitation harder. Examples are KASLR, KPTI, SMEP, SMAP, FG-KASLR, or structure layout randomization. However, despite the presence of state-of-the-art mitigations, it is still possible to leverage powerful vulnerabilities or chain multiple ones to compromise the security of a system. During this talk, we will learn how to exploit vulnerabilities in the Linux Kernel and bypass the existing mitigations to escalate privileges from untrusted users to root.

Speaker: Pietro Borrello (Sapienza University of Rome)

Computer science education in Bavaria: reacting to the challenges of digitization

When: October 19th, 2021 from 17:00 - 18:00
Where: HS BE01, Steyrergasse 30, Ground Floor // Webex
Registration required!



The unstoppable digitization of all areas of life is changing our society sustainably and dramatically. School education must respond to this appropriately, i.e., on a broad front. This requires a carefully planned, long-term, evidence-based overall strategy designed for sustainability, which must touch (almost) all areas of school activity. In line with this universality of demands, an enormous diversity of terms used for informatics education is evident worldwide. We have identified over 40 relevant terms for this purpose. Equally diverse are the teaching contents offered in this area. The identification of competencies to be learned by students poses particular difficulties. There is very little preliminary research on this to date.
To master digital systems, our students need solid knowledge of their technical functioning and logical structure as well as competencies suitable for everyday use to apply digital tools effectively and efficiently. This foundation can only be learned in a dedicated subject of computer science. But all other school subjects must also respond to the challenges of digitization by adapting their learning objectives, learning methods and the media used accordingly. However, it is not easy to make such changes to an existing school system while it is still in operation. The greatest challenge here is the restructuring of pre- and in-service teacher education, both in computer science and in the didactics of all other subjects.
The German State of Bavaria already reacted to this challenge in 2000 with the introduction of a compulsory subject in computer science at its Gymnasien and Realschulen, which was significantly developed designed and supported by the author, i.a. in teacher education, curriculum work, and by writing textbooks. This was followed in 2019 by another major offensive by the state government, in which the existing compulsory subject of computer science was further expanded as well as newly introduced at main schools.
In this presentation, the basic concept of this subject will be presented, as well as some supporting activities such as teacher training. However, in the course of these activities, some persistent obstacles have also emerged that are very difficult to remove, Above all, the low enrollments in teacher training programs for computer science, as can be observed in almost all concerned countries. One possible reason for this could be found in the contradictory personal requirements of a teaching degree on the one hand and a computer science degree on the other.

Klimakrise und Bewusstseinswandel

[in German] Sustainability4U-Ringvorlesung von Univ.-Prof. Dr. Armin Grunwald (Karlsruher Institut für Technologie). Seit dem Bewusstwerden der globalen Umweltveränderungen in den 1970er Jahren wird ein Bewusstseinswandel gefordert. Viel Zeit ist verstrichen. Umwelt- und Klimabewusstsein haben sich in dieser Zeit durchaus geändert, zumindest in vielen europäische Ländern. Auch in der Technik hat sich viel getan, vergleicht man etwa die Effizienz heutiger Autos mit denen von damals. Und politisch wurde einiges verändert. Aber dennoch, das alles scheint bei Weitem nicht zu reichen. Die Emissionen steigen und steigen, die Perspektiven auf die Zukunft des Klimas verdüstern sich. Was läuft hier eigentlich falsch? Antworten auf diese Frage wären der Schlüssel für Rezepte, wie wir es besser machen können. Diesen Weg will der Vortrag ein Stück weit beschreiten. http://sustainability4u.uni-graz.at/cms/fileadmin/downloads/Ring-VO/2020/S4U_ring-vo_2020.pdf

32nd International Conference on Industrial, Engineering & Other Applications of Applied Intelligent Systems (IEA/AIE 2019)

09 - 11 July 2019 | Alte Technik, Rechbauerstraße 12, 8010 Graz

This annual event brings together academic and industrial researchers from all areas of intelligent systems research in order to discuss theoretical foundations and their application in practice. Without doubt, today many smart, intelligent systems assist us more or less visible in our everyday's live. Be it the more or less successful smart behavior of our mobile phone, autonomous trains connecting airport terminals, recommender systems drawing our attention to products we might need, or autonomous rovers exploring outer space or hazard sites. Complementing about 70 paper presentations, we will enjoy three keynotes:  Reiner John: "The 2nd wave of AI -- Thesis for success of AI in trustworthy, safety critical mobility systems''),  Dietmar Jannach: "Session-based Recommendation: Challenges and Recent Advances'', and Louise Trave-Massuyes:  "Contributions of diagnostic reasoning to the general demand for AI in the industry''. See you at IEA/AIE 2019!
