    Talk Title: How to Memorize a Random 60-Bit String

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: User-generated passwords tend to be memorable, but not secure. A random, computer-generated 60-bit string is much more secure. However, users cannot memorize random 60-bit strings. In this paper, we investigate methods for converting arbitrary bit strings into English word sequences (both prose and poetry), and we study their memorability and other properties.

    Biography: Marjan Ghazvininejad is a second year PhD student in Computer Science at University of Southern California (USC). She is working with Professor Kevin Knight at the Information Sciences Institute (ISI). She is interested in natural language processing, especially the application of machine learning techniques in this area.

    Host: Nima Pourdamghani and Kevin Knight
