Lightning Talks

From 33C3_Public_Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Lightning Talks are short lectures (almost) any congress participant may give!

Bring your infectious enthusiasm to an audience with a short attention span! Discuss a program, system or technique! Pitch your projects and ideas or try to rally a crew of people to your party or assembly! Whatever you bring, make it quick! To get an idea what Lightning Talks are about and how they work, look at last year's sessions at [1].


Lightning talk registration is open! Just enter your information in the Lightning Talk form and follow the instructions. Don't forget to mail us a link to your Lightning Talk page, as stated in the instructions. There is no registration deadline. We assign timeslots on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you plan on giving your talk on a specific day, submit your slides as soon as possible. Preliminary slides are okay, but remember to update them on the day before your talk. If you have any questions, please send a mail to the Lightning Talk team. We speak English and German.


Lightning talk sessions are offered on Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4 of the congress, in Hall G. Each session starts at 12:45 and ends at 15:00. There will be a break of 15 minutes in the middle of each session.

Below is the current schedule of the confirmed lightning talks.

Technology in education and for-profit interests
Day 2, 12:50
In 2015 the global education market was estimated $4.9 (USD) trillion. It is not surprising that technology giants, private enterprises and publishing houses lobby aggressively to shape education policy so that they can conveniently sell their products and services. In this talk I will share some examples from my work with Education International, the global education union federation on how this takes shape at the global and national level (e.g., copyrights, scripted lessons, standardisation etc.). As a way forward I would also like to invite the conference participants to join me in a workshop to discuss some of these aspects bringing together people working or interested in education & technology.

Opening patents for makers - a green light to make
Day 2, 13:00
The objective of the legal project "Greenlight" is to introduce more clarity and

security in the patent system for free-innovators (makers, DIYers). (1) It is about creating a space in the system where they can freely work, tinker on patented devices, and share their ideas with no fear of patent infringement. (2) In addition to that, we would like to establish a database ("greenbase") which would centralize makers' ideas (on hardware, but not only) and serve as a) a source for patent search for patent offices, and

b) enlist activities protected by the legal exception (the greenlight).

How to decode AFSK data
Day 2, 13:05
In the days of early homecomputers like the Commodore 64 it was possible to use audio cassette tapes as storage medium. To encode digital data into an audio signal that can be stored on tape a modulation technique called Audio Frequency Shift Keying (AFSK) was used. This talks explains how AFSK works and demonstrates how to decode the audio signal back into bits and bytes.

The SIPSA protocol — real anonymity
Day 2, 13:10
I have devised a technology that allows to hide both source and destination addresses in IP packets on the network level and I'd like to share it with you. This lightning talk gives a brief intro to the technology. Source IP spoofing for anonymization over UDP (SIPSA) is a proposal for a protocol that in many network environments would allow two hosts on the network to hide both their source and destination addresses, while still being able to communicate information. A proof of concept tool that allows testing SIPSA is freely and publicly available on github.

OpenCare: The Future of welfare in the hands of hackers
Day 2, 13:20
The migration issue dominates the European political debate. The influx of migrants, some people say, will break the European welfare system. Any new person coming in is reducing the amount of care that others can get. Care is a zero-sum game. Is that really the case?

It turns out that, when faced with care challenges, communities rise to meet them. By doing so, they step outside of our current paradigm, one of provision of care services by a combination of the state and private business. This changes the game completely to one of decentralization and reciprocity.

In this talk, we explore some of the amazing care services that communities are providing - right now - to people that the state and private business have let down. We then ask how we, as the tech community, could support these initiatives to become more resilient and to scale where possible.

Evolving Internet Transport
Day 2, 13:25
The Internet works, we can move files across the network. Protocol development and deployment is hamstrung by ancient API's and middleboxes configure to let the minimum amount of traffic through. Developers need a new approach to accessing the network, libraries and tools adapt to network conditions. We will present the current set of problems hampering development on the Internet and the Open Source NEAT System that aims to address them.

Law Hacking: Fixing the new Radio Directive
Day 2, 13:35
The new EU radio device directive (2014/53/EU) endangers more than "just" Freifunk - it could also be a barrier for research. We are looking for research groups from german institutions to co-sign a statement asking the Bundestag to fix a few glaring holes in the proposed implementation

A stochastic particle-based chemical system simulator for the web
Day 2, 13:40
This summer I wrote a simulation engine for simulating large amounts of particles that are randomly moving around and reacting with each other, and with membranes for particle separation. This allows the simulation of simple chemical and biological systems. I wrote the engine in Dart which means it runs in a web-browser. I want to tell something about the algorithms I use in the engine and show some nice simulations!

COALA IP - A blockchain-ready intellectual property licensing protocol
Day 2, 14:15
Content creators on the internet are getting a raw deal. They get a fraction of the revenue earned by hosting and distribution platforms, even though their work is what keeps these sites filled with traffic-driving content. The COALA IP group is collaborating to design and implement a free and open specification for representing and licensing intellectual property on blockchains. COALA IP's goal is to establish easy-to-use ways to record attribution information and other metadata about works, assign or license rights, mediate disputes, and authenticate claims by others. We believe there should be a global standard at the data level, without the need for centralized control.

Day 2, 14:35
After the Snowden reports, lots of new instant messaging protocols and -messengers spawned. mailbox3000 is a new approach which aims at reusing existing technologies and simplicity. Essentially, The concept is to exchange short e-mails via http using libsignal for encryption and http basic auth for authentication, using only one server in the middle which stores messages until they are fetched by the client. The server software is implemented as a small cgi so that everybody can set up his own server.

Hacking medical tech development
Day 2, 14:45
In November 2016 Copernicus Science Centre, the biggest science centre in Poland, organized a hackathon unlike most others; the idea was to devise a solution to a very specialized medical problem, the target group of participants was composed mainly of makers and product designers, and the goal was to bridge the gap between academic research and the unrestrained creative spirit of the general public. I was an advisor to the organizers, concerned mainly with keeping all involved parties happy with the design process. The results were far above anybody's expectations and pushed us to make more events in the same vein. Come to the talk to hear how it went and what we want to do next.

CVE-Search - An Open Source CVE Information Aggregator
Day 3, 13:05
cve-search is a tool to import CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) and CPE (Common Platform Enumeration) into a MongoDB to facilitate search and processing of CVEs.

The main objective of the software is to avoid doing direct and public lookup into the public CVE databases. This is usually faster to do local lookups and limits your sensitive queries via the Internet.

cve-search includes a back-end to store vulnerabilities and related information, an intuitive web interface for search and managing vulnerabilities, a series of tools to query the system and a web API interface.

TDRM — Tihange Doel Radiation Monitoring
Day 3, 13:10
The nuclear power plants Tihange and Doel in Belgium have had many faults in the past few years. We have built a network of sensor stations to monitor radiation, with already 20 fully operational monitor stations in the field! Our website displays current readings of radiation near the power plants and in Aachen. In this Lightning Talk, we'll describe the situation and show you how we used Raspberry Pis to build our own sensors.

Free Digital Territories
Day 3, 13:25
We speak about our plans when we visit in May 2017 two indigenous communities in Brasil. Based on their project Baobáxia we want to work out if and how Freifunk mesh technologies could support them for more interconnectivity.

On invitation by art school CAPACETE (Rio de Janeiro) we plan to go to the indigenous area "Barra Velha" in Brasil to support the interconnectivity of Baobaxia communities which they are part of. Baobáxia is a community-built project to connect about 200 Brazilian quilombos to assist the interchange and preservation of traditional, community-built culture. A special challenge is found in the fact that many of these communities are located in remote areas with no access to the Internet.

The project is supported as an art project by ifa (Insitut für Auslandsbeziehungen)

Feel free to connect us. Especially Portuguese speaking people could help in planning phase.

Discreete Linux: Protection against trojan-based surveillance
Day 3, 13:30
Discreete Linux is an operating system with the special purpose of protecting whistleblowers, human rights defenders, journalists, trade union and political activists and other targets against governmental surveillance attacks with trojan software.

Since Edward Snowden has revealed the extent of the global surveillance of the world's population by governments and intelligence agencies, this threat has continued to grow. Today also numerous commercial providers of surveillance tools are also selling Trojan software to dictatorships and states that proclaim torture.

This talk aims to explain the basic ideas of Discreete Linux and show some perhaps not so well-known trojanization methods used by the NSA.

Robots txt abuses by government agencies against transparency
Day 3, 14:55
robots.txt often abused by government agencies against transparency measures to hide very specific information from search engines, often in order to mask results of relationship related to "name surname" search of high ranking officials or companies.

A research has been done on Italian public agencies and European Union to identify "what do they hide". A prototipe to re-index those into search engine by proxying requests has been developed.

Looking for hackers interested in making it a stable transparency opensource project  :-)

Presenting a type of hybrid, serial-parallel bio-inspired robot geometry suitable for large and small robotic manipulators that do not exhibit the usual singularities. It has little or no limitations in speed or trajectory and the payload-to-weight ratio is far better than current serial robots, while the workspace is larger than most parallel robots known today. If you have knowledge in 3D software like solidworks and like to animate a model, or - even better, if we find a way to hack a prototype during days 1,2,3 of the congress - get in touch with me!

The Other Side of the Inzestverbot
Day 4, 13:10
Growing up is always hard, but nowadays it's even harder because - at least in the west - people tend to have less children and so, many of us already went or are going into the world without siblings. This is fatal because Siblings teach us solidarity, kindness and to threat the Other with love and understanding. But fear not, fancy French Philosophers have come to neat and quite handy terms which are maybe solving this little civilisatory problem. In an attempt to mediate between the two, words from Jacques Derrida and Claude Levi-Strauss will be thrown together to make a point of more tinkering/hacking with our personal affairs.
