SEAS Seniors Showcase Their Expertise(工程与计算机科学展示会)


A pair of computer science students who proposed a new way to protect personal devices from cyber threats won first place in the DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science’s Annual Senior Project Showcase.
(两位霍夫斯特拉大学计算机专业的学生,提出了新的保护个人设备抵御网络攻击的方法,他们因此在DeMatteis工程与应用科学学院年度项目展示中获得了第一名的好成绩。
George Roussis and Kendra Campbell’s project “Honeypot Based Group Monitoring and Protection” would enable networks of any size to protect themselves from threats by deploying a number of passive honeypots, a malware detecting software, as probes inside the network. Once an attack is discovered, a honeypot reports the network identity and malicious attack signatures to a central server so that all other network users can access the blacklist of attackers and protect their personal devices.
George Roussis Kendra Campbell的项目“Honeypot Based Group Monitoring and Protection”(蜜罐技术)是一种能让各类网络通过过蜜罐技术实现自我保护的技术。一旦发现网络攻击,用户们可以通过中央服务器查看蜜罐报告,得到攻击的信息从而加入自己设备的黑名单中,最终实现保护个人设备的目的。
 “Many people don’t run antivirus or security software on their personal devices. These connected devices have the potential to adversely affect entire networks,” Roussis explained.   “By adding another layer of security, system networks would have the ability to better defend themselves requiring no additional antivirus software downloads.”
“很多人不在他们的个人设备上使用杀毒软件或防火墙。这些互联的设备一旦受到攻击就会影响整个网络”Roussis解释道,“通过增加一层安全层,网络会有更好的能力在不使用杀毒软件的情况下去防御自己”
The Senior Project Showcase is an opportunity for computer science and engineering students to present their senior projects to a panel of local industry related professionals.   Thirty-two students presented at this year’s competition.  Projects were scored on a scale of 1 to 5 based on their technological or scientific significance, the methodology for solving the specified problem, the ingenuity and originality of the proposed solution, whether their poster displayed the work accomplished clearly and the student’s ability to explain their ideas.
这次的高级项目展示会对于工程和计算机专业的学生们来说是一次向当地相关企业展示他们项目的绝佳机会。32位同学们参加了这次年度竞赛。这次活动所有的项目基于他们的技术和方法、功能和展示按照1-5分给予了评分。
Sina Rabbany, dean of the Fred DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science, congratulated the students on their work.  “The wide array of projects showcase the breadth of technical creativity on display by our students.”
Fred DeMatteis 工程与计算机学院长Sina Rabbany向参与活动的学生们和他们的作品表示了祝贺,“我们学生们的创造力和技术成就了我们这次展示会的维度”
Second place was awarded to computer science major, Marvin Dizon for “EyeDetect”, an interactive tool designed to support video surveillance technology by analyzing video footage and identifying human shapes.  Practical applications for EyeDetect include preventing fire hazards by monitoring the number of people in a particular area or helping retailers to accurately predict the foot traffic of shoppers at different times of day.
比赛的第二名由计算机专业的学生Marvin Dizon获得,他设计的“EyeDetect”是一款通过分析视频信息和人物形状来实现视频监控的交互工具。EyeDetect可以应用于通过监控人数来预防火灾或者帮助零售商预测每天不同时段的顾客人数。
Dizon said that working on his senior project helped him develop soft skills that he hopes will benefit him in his career.  “I definitely gained a lot of experience in terms of working collaboratively with someone.  I’m also excited for what the future holds for Computer Vision and Virtual Reality.”
Dizon说,参加这次项目活动帮助他提升了自己的软件技术,这些技术将会对他的职业有很大帮助。“我在团队合作中也积累了很多合作的经验,我很高兴将来能从事虚拟现实或计算机视觉的工作”
Other engineering and computer science projects showcased at this year’s event ranged from an alternate design for ebband flow hydroponic plant systems to a cost-effective approach for lowering the number of Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) train and subway fatalities.
其他的作品在这次活动中一一展出,从耕种潮汐交互比较设计到通过减少MTA铁路和地铁设施降低其成本的设计,都展现了工程与计算机科学展示活动的专业与精彩。
