(SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – November 14, 2017): On Friday, November 17th, Algoma University fourth-year computer science students will be presenting their thesis proposals in a public forum.
Each presenter will have twenty minutes to present their topic followed by a five-minute question and answer period. The presentations will occur between 9am – 12pm in the Doc Brown Lounge (EW 205). All are welcome to attend.
The following is a list of the presenters and the topics that they will be presenting:
Presenter: Guy Coccimiglio
Thesis Title: Preventing Reward Hacking in Reinforcement Learning Artificial Intelligence
Presenter: Peizhi Yan
Thesis Title: Using Machine Learning in Gomoku Game
Presenter: Alan Cantin
Thesis Title: Automating Heat Perimeter Mapping with Thermal Infrared Imagery
Presenter: Damindu Liyanage
Thesis Title: Encrypted Real-time Communication
Presenter: Justin Rhude
Thesis Title: Lightweight Onion Routing Simulation for Traffic Analysis Attack Testing
Presenter: Joseph Tassone
Thesis Title: Intercepting Wireless Communication: Bluetooth Low Energy & Radio Frequency Identification
“The thesis presentations allow our students to defend their thesis proposals in front of a broader audience,” says Dr. Townsend, Full Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. “The thesis course provides students with the opportunity to research a topic of their choice in depth during the fall term and then to write a thesis based on that research during the winter term.”
Dr. Townsend indicated that this research often includes the development of a hardware or software system during the winter term that is demonstrated in the students’ final presentations next April.
