Prof. Monica Lam was invited to give a keynote at HiPEAC 2019, one of the premier international academic conferences for computer systems and computer architectures.
The keynote addressed the rise of proprietary virtual assistants, and the risk they present to consumer privacy and open competition in the industry. In response to this threat, we presented Almond, our open-source, privacy-aware federated solution.
Update: the keynote is now available on YouTube.
