We wish all of graduating students all of the best – we will miss you all! This includes college seniors: Abby Barnes, Liv Campili, Jason Chee, Oishee Chakrabarti, Andre Dang, Riya Sahni, Ishaan Singh, and Zoe Torok and high school seniors: Navaneeth Rajan and Yaretzi Ulloa! We are ever so grateful for your contributions and look forward to hearing about your new journeys in the world 🙂
Jake, Andre, Riya, Ishaan, and Leo joined a host of other students and faculty from UChicago Computer Science department to attend the National Robotics Week at the Museum of Science and Industry. This year, they presented two different activities. The first was a game that involved having children and adults guess what data various stakeholders knew about them. The second was a live demo that visualized what data third-parties collect when visiting EdTech websites online. Both activities were a resounding success! Read more about the event here.
We were excited to co-organize the fourth annual symposium on applications of contextual integrity, PrivaCI, at CornellTech in New York City. Jake presented at the symposium on our K-12 EdTech project and also helped mentor new and incoming students to the community – it was a great event all round!
Jake and Amy joined a host of other students and faculty from UChicago Computer Science department to attend the National Robotics Week at the Museum of Science and Industry. Their game which involved having children and adults guess what data different stakeholders know about them was a resounding success and the overall event was really fun.

We were so excited to be back in-person in October! To celebrate, earlier this quarter, we decided we should make the most of the good weather in Chicago for our first AIR lab social event with the NOISE lab. This is one of our socially distanced pictures from the event – sadly not all lab members were able to attend so this is a subset of us after pizza and cookies!
Together with amazing co-organizers, Blase Ur, Yan Shvartzshnaider, and Helen Nissembaum, we held the Third Annual Symposium of Applications of Contextual Integrity at the Department of Computer Science on September 30 and October 1, 2021. This was hybrid event co-organized with CornellTech and went off successfully thanks to volunteers from the AIR lab and SUPERgroup and others from the Department of Computer Science! For instance, Kelly co-chaired a session at the event. Thanks also to our support team, Sandy Quarles, Nita Yack, Tom Dobes, Rob Mitchum, and Rene Noyola!
