Marshini recently presented a longer version of her talk to Imagine All The People On A Trustworthy Internet at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, at the Design, Use, Build seminar at the University of Washington, and the HCI seminar at Stanford University. Despite being virtual, all these seminars were in welcoming, open environments, and it was great to share the insights from the AIR lab with others!
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!
Marshini returned to her PhD Alma Mater, Gatech and the GVU center to give a talk on some of the work from AIR lab that focuses on making the Internet trustworthy and inclusive. A video recording of the talk is available here.
Our joint paper with SUPERgroup led by Maia Boyd received a CHI Honorable Mention award this year. This paper investigates how in-person Black Lives Matters protesters use online privacy and security advice.
Congratulations to Neha Lingareddy and Brennan Schaffner on their accepted workshop paper for the “What Can CHI Do About Dark Patterns?” Workshop to be held virtually at CHI 2021. They will be discussing barriers to deleting an account on the top 20 social media platforms in the USA.
AIR lab members, Shriya Bansal (Co-President/Event Director), Lucy Li (Events Lead), and Neha Lingareddy (Events Flex Chair) who help run CompileHer organized a hackathon online on Feb 6/7 for middle school girls. The theme was <interstell/Her> and creating awareness around space and the solar system. Adam Shaw and Marshini were judges for the competition and were impressed by the range of system designs the participants prototyped in a short amount of time!
