Mathematics: A Universal Language
Algebraic Topology 101
Algebraic Topology 101, Jana Sukkarieh, starting November 2018.
Abstract Algebra, Topology and Category Theory were my favorite subjects at Uni. In this first Mathematics series, I would like to introduce “Algebraic Topology”. It requires the introduction of Topology and Abstract Algebra as prerequisites, but goes much more beyond these two branches of Mathematics. One reason I am interested in re-visiting “Algebraic Topology” is that it has many uses and applications in Computer Science, in general, and in Artificial Intelligence, in particular.
Information Systems Security
Cryptology 101, Jana Sukkarieh, starting March 2019.
Cryptology is one coin with two heads: Cryptography is the art and science of multi-party confidential communication through an insecure channel. The other side of the coin is the domain of cryptanalysis, which is the art and science of deciphering those communications.
In cryptography, mechanisms based on mathematical concepts are designed to ensure the three fundamental desiderata of information systems security: confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA). Cryptanalysis studies the mechanisms of cryptography in order to break them.
