CISE faculty members Dr. Tom Shrimpton and Dr. Patrick Traynor, along with CISE Ph.D. students Hadi Abdullah, Muhammad Sajidur Rahman, Washington Garcia, Kevin Warren, and Anurag Swarnim Yadav won the Best Screenplay Award at the 2021 IEEE Security and Privacy Conference for their paper, “Hear ‘No Evil’, See ‘Kenansville’: Efficient and Transferable Black-Box Attacks on Speech Recognition and Voice Identification Systems.”

Computer scientists are not typically known for writing screenplays—in this case, researchers created a script and visualization of the particular research problem discussed in their paper. The video, linked below, includes dialogue and the written basis for the project.
