    THEMES
    Payments
    Circle's Payments API has re-imagined processing payments to accept global payments across traditional and blockchain rails in one powerful integration. Open up new markets and drive down costs to your business with payments infrastructure powered by USDC.
    DeFi
    Decentralized finance (DeFi) is an emerging financial technology based on secure distributed ledgers similar to those used by cryptocurrencies. USDC is the most popular dollar digital asset to access the Web3 world. Our APIs provide easy access to USDC for your DeFi applications.
    Trusted Blockchain Apps
    Throughout Web3 history, the absence of a robust, open-source standard for sharing and verifying online identity has created many challenges for developers and end-users alike. Circle is a launch partner and key contributor to Web3 identity service Verite, which presents an open, shared, interoperable architecture for identity and trust in the global crypto financial ecosystem. With Verite, credentials can be issued and used to prove identity claims for an unbounded number of use cases, including KYC verification, accredited investor status, social reputation, NFT provenance tracking and more- without the need for participants to disclose personal data.
    All Things USDC
    Web3 is a place that embraces innovation, we would love to see your imagination go beyond the above areas. Any ideas that expand the current use cases of USDC is welcomed. (eg. Gaming, NFT & DAOs, etc)

  • CS Colloquium: Paul Schmitt (USC ISI) - Networked Systems for a Modern, Private Internet

    Mon, Apr 04, 2022 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Paul Schmitt, USC ISI

    Talk Title: Networked Systems for a Modern, Private Internet

    Abstract: Users expect that the networks and protocols they use protect their privacy. Unfortunately, many ubiquitous legacy systems have significant privacy flaws. Network operators face a different challenge: widespread adoption of encryption, while a clear benefit to users, reduces operator visibility into traffic flowing through their networks. In this talk, I discuss networked systems to enhance user privacy and systems and techniques for privacy-preserving network traffic analysis. I describe my research that leverages key architectural points of decoupling to enhance privacy in the global DNS ecosystem and in mobile networks. I then discuss systems I have built for privacy-preserving network analysis for use by network operators to gain insight into network usage and performance, all without breaking encryption.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium

    Biography: Paul Schmitt is a research computer scientist at ISI. His research areas include networked systems, privacy, network traffic inference and analysis, and scalable Internet measurement. His work takes a dirty-slate approach to networked systems research, allowing for compatibility and immediate deployability in current environments. He previously received his PhD from UC Santa Barbara in 2017 and was an associate research scholar at Princeton University.

  • CAIS Seminar: David Eddie (Massachusetts General Hospital) - Towards a biosensor-driven, just-in-time relapse prevention tool for substance use disorder: Identifying neurocardiac biomarkers of stress and relapse risk

    Mon, Apr 04, 2022 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: David Eddie, Massachusetts General Hospital

    Talk Title: Towards a biosensor-driven, just-in-time relapse prevention tool for substance use disorder: Identifying neurocardiac biomarkers of stress and relapse risk

    Series: USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society (CAIS) Seminar Series

    Abstract: Substance use disorders carry tremendous personal and societal costs, and despite best patient and clinical efforts, relapse is common. Much research has sought to identify psychosocial risk factors for addiction relapse, but much less attention has been paid to how psychophysiological impairment may confer risk. In this talk, I will highlight how stress and central autonomic network dysregulation reflected by reduced heart rate variability (HRV) may heighten risk for individuals in early alcohol use disorder (AUD) recovery, showing that HRV can be used to predict subsequent alcohol use. I will also show preliminary findings from a study that aims to use smartwatches and machine learning to identify stress states, with the goal of developing a just-in-time relapse prevention tool for individuals in early recovery from substance use disorder.

    After registering, attendees will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.


    Biography: David Eddie, Ph.D. is a research scientist at Massachusetts General Hospital's Recovery Research Institute and Center for Addiction Medicine, a clinical psychologist in Massachusetts General Hospital's Department of Psychiatry, and an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School. His current projects include an NIAAA supported study developing a biosensor driven just-in-time intervention for substance use disorders, and a NIDA supported project assessing the efficacy of a novel mutual-help addiction recovery program based on physical activity.
