TechSandBox Novel applications of Drone Technologies
Hopkinton, MA | 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm | Career Development, Community Event|$25-30
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have now come to be known as drones. More generally an unmanned aircraft or ship guided remotely or by on-board computers (the more applicable definition from Merriam-Webster’s dictionary) is now called a drone but gone are the days when drones were exclusively used for combat purposes. Many applications and interesting new technologies have been developed and new markets for drone applications have been opened. In this program we will hear from some visionaries who saw the market and were amongst the first successful movers in this space.

Cybersecurity@CSAIL Lecture Series: “The Quest for Memory Safety”
Cambridge, MA | 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm | Lecture, Career Development, Networking | Free
Dr. Hamed Okhravi is a research staff at the Cyber Analytics and Decision Systems group of MIT Lincoln Laboratory, where he leads programs and conducts research in the area of systems security. His research interests include cyber security, science of security, security metrics, and operating systems. Memory corruption attacks have been a primary vector of cyber-attacks against computer systems for the past few decades. Complete memory safety techniques that provide spatial and temporal safety properties have been proposed in the community, but they incur large performance overhead to legacy languages such as C/C++. As a result, there has been a race in the community to create lightweight, compatible, and effective memory corruption defenses. In this talk, we evaluate two such defensive paradigms called Code Pointer Integrity (CPI) and Control Flow Integrity (CFI).

Women in Tech: Careers Beyond Coding
Cambridge, MA | 8:15 am – 10:30 am | Networking, Career Development, Women in Tech| $30
From event organizers The Capital Network and She Geeks Out: “The conversation around women in tech these days seems to focus on (the lack of) female engineers. While an important conversation – there are a myriad of other job positions in tech – currently held by women – that go beyond coding and developing. This panel brings together women who have made their mark in the tech industry in a variety of different roles. Each of these roles is important and significant, yet these women are not developers. The speakers will share their unique perspectives on their job functions, how they got to where they are, and how they embody the ‘woman in tech’ role. This event is a unique opportunity to get an insider’s perspective on what it means to be ‘a woman in tech’. Whether you are just starting out, looking to jump into the world of tech, or are more experienced, come and join us for breakfast, followed by a vibrant discussion and networking.”
