Below you can find the individual scores for assignments and quizzes set in CS314 Computer Networks Lab for Fall 2011. Note that the course instructor will decide at the end of the semester how these get incorporated in the final assessment.
This post will provide a way for students of HCI (Fall 07 – FAST-NU) to keep track of their results throughout the semester. Quiz/assignment scores and exam grades will be available through the spreadsheet embedded below. It will be your responsibility to bookmark these pages and visit the pages after exams to see your official score. If you have any problems/concerns, let me know through email. Commenting on this post is enabled but should only be used in case you have suggestions for improvement of this system. Do not post anything about your scores. I will not answer any such queries here.
Our second research and development project has been approved by the National ICTR&D Fund, Pakistan. ICTR&D is a highly reputable funding agency and funds only state-of-the-art projects in the field of information and communication technologies. We at SERG have become the first group in NWFP to have two projects approved by ICTR&D. This one brings 14.7 million to SERG. (Not that we can use it willy-nilly but still.)
This project is about Android security. We’ll be making the details of the project available soon using our group’s homepage but I can announce right now that we will be needing highly skilled, motivated and energetic individuals to work with us on this very interesting and challenging new technology. If you’ve been looking at the web, you’d know how much popularity Android is getting. I can also assure any potential candidates that the pay is very handsome.
So, keep reading this space to see when we announce the interviews, show up for the interview and join our team of dedicated, hard-working (and funny) individuals.
HTC (the guys who built the first Android phone for T-Mobile) have released a new Android-based smartphone called Hero. It’s an amazing piece of technology and looks really cute. We’ll be trying to get our hands on this one but only if it’s not SIM-locked. Not likely, since HTC is a manufacturer, not a carrier. It runs on a customized Android OS. Looks like HTC guys put a lot of effort into the UI of the device. Not only is it multi-touch, it also looks like the next gen of UIs for smartphones. Here are the specs:
Here’s the phone:
I gave a talk today on the gap between industry and academia and what the students can do to bridge that gap. You can take a look at the presentation file below. Topic of the presentation was “Bridging the Gap between Industry and Academia: Perspective and Rants” and was presented in City University.
My visit to Oxford was concluded with a two-day travel back. It was back-breaking (my back is still broken) because of all the walking and the sitting. The paper I presented can be seen on the publications page and the photos of the trip along with captions can be seen on my facebook album. I am currently writing the visit report (to be submitted to the funding agency — ICT R&D) and may upload it if it seems interesting. The personal costs for the trip were 14,000 pakistani rupees including the visa fees. Not bad for a trip to Oxford.
