Deduplication is a leading method for reducing physical storage capacity when duplicate data is present. This method can be applied on chunks, files, containers, and more. Instead of storing the same physical data multiple times, a pointer is created from each logical copy to the same physical copy, saving the space of the duplicate data. Due to this, data is shared between objects, such as files or entire directories, which result in garbage collection overhead ...

We propose a novel quasi-Newton method for solving the sparse inverse covariance estimation problem also known as the graphical least absolute shrinkage and selection operator (GLASSO). This problem is often solved using a second order quadratic approximation. However, in such algorithms the Hessian term is complex and computationally expensive to handle. To this end,our algorithm uses the inverse of the Hessian as a preconditioner to simplify and approximate the quadratic element at the cost of ...

Constrained Horn Clauses (CHCs) is a fragment of First Order Logic (FOL), that has gained a lot of attention in recent years. One of the main reasons for the rising interest in CHCs is the ability to reduce many verification problems to satisfiability of CHCs. For example, program verification can naturally be described as the satisfiability of CHCs modulo a background theory such as linear arithmetic and arrays. To this end, CHC-solvers can be used ...

As the field of deep learning progresses, and models become larger and larger, training deep neural networks has become a demanding task. The task requires a huge amount of compute power, and can still be very time consuming - especially when using just a single GPU. To tackle this problem, distributed deep learning has come into play, with various asynchronous training algorithms. However, most of these algorithms suffer from decreased accuracy as the number of ...

Range matching (RM) is a crucial component in computer systems, widely used in address translation, hard drives, network switches, and many more applications. RM is performed whenever one wishes to locate a range that contains an input number, given a large set of ranges. Any page-based mechanism uses RM, as pages are basically ranges. Longest prefix matching (LPM) uses ternary rules, which are also ranges. Firewalls are one example of multidimensional RM since ACL rules ...

Symmetric ciphers are cryptographic algorithms that use the same cryptographic keys for both encryption and decryption. The key represents a shared secret between users, that is used to maintain a private information link. In our research we focus on cryptanalysis of block ciphers, which are the most widely used realization of symmetric ciphers. Block ciphers are cryptosystems that consist of two algorithms, an encryption algorithm that accepts a symmetric key and a plaintext and outputs ...

Face recognition systems are frequently used in a variety of security applications in our daily lives. Some methods are designed to utilize geometric information extracted from depth sensors to overcome single-image-based recognition technologies’ weaknesses, such as vulnerability to illumination variations, large head poses, and spoofing attacks. However, the accurate acquisition of the depth profile or surface is an expensive and challenging process. We introduce a novel method to recognize faces from stereo camera systems without ...

We present an algorithm for producing a seamless animated loop from a single image. The algorithm detects periodic structures, such as the windows of a building or the steps of a staircase, and generates a non-trivial displacement vector field that maps each segment of the structure onto a neighboring segment along a user- or auto-selected main direction of motion. This displacement field is used, together with suitable temporal and spatial smoothing, to warp the image ...

The development of computing systems able to address our ever-increasing needs, especially as we reach the end of CMOS transistor scaling, requires truly novel methods of computing. My research draws inspiration from biology, rethinks the digital/analog boundary, and challenges conventional wisdom, which typically guides how we perform computation, by reimagining the role of time. In this talk, I first introduce a computational temporal logic that sets the foundation for temporal computing. Second, I demonstrate how ...

Training deep neural networks in the distributed asynchronous setting is complicated. In the distributed asynchronous setting, the computational devices run in parallel, causing a delay in the propagation of information between the different computational devices. The delay is often referred to as staleness, which harms the training process and the quality of the deep neural network. This staleness is one of the main difficulties in scaling asynchronous settings to a large number of computational devices ...

Our world is constantly evolving, and so is the content on the web. Consequently, our languages, often said to mirror the world, are dynamic in nature. However, most current language representations are static and cannot adapt to changes over time. New words and semantic evolution have been shown to pose a crucial challenge in many Natural Language Processing and Information Retrieval tasks, leading to a significant performance drop for modern language models. In this thesis, ...

Predictive machine learning tools are increasingly being used to inform decisions regarding humans. When human users stand to gain from certain predictive outcomes, they may be prone to act strategically to improve those outcomes. We argue that in many realistic scenarios the system and its users are in fact aligned in their goals. In this work, we give concrete real-world examples for such environments and demonstrate using a series of experiments that they are incentive-aligned. ...

In distributed differential privacy, the parties perform analysis over their joint data while preserving the privacy for both datasets. Interestingly, for a few fundamental two-party functions such as inner product and Hamming distance, the accuracy of the distributed solution lags way behind what is achievable in the client-server setting. McGregor, Mironov, Pitassi, Reingold, Talwar, and Vadhan [FOCS ’10] proved that this gap is inherent, showing upper bounds on the accuracy of (any) distributed solution for ...

Recently, there has been a growing interest in harnessing the power of big datasets and modern machine learning for designing new scalable algorithms. This invites us to rethink the role of data in algorithm design: not just as the input to pre-designed algorithms, but also a factor that enters the algorithm design process itself, driving it in a strong and possibly automated manner. This talk will show how to leverage data and learning for better ...
