Open Knowledge Maps

Open Knowledge Maps
https://openknowledgemaps.org/

Map a research topic. Get an overview – Find Papers – Identify relevant concepts. Their Goal is to revolutionize discovery of scientific knowledge. We are building a visual interface that dramatically increases the visibility of research findings for science and society alike. We are a non-profit organization and we believe that a better way to explore and discover scientific knowledge will benefit us all. Advantages include: 1) Get an overview of a research topic: knowledge maps provide an instant overview of a topic by showing the main areas at a glance, and papers related to each area. This makes it possible to easily identify useful, pertinent information; 2) Separate the wheat from the chaff: we cluster similar papers together. This makes it easier to identify relevant content when you are searching for an ambiguous term, or when you would like to identify content from a single discipline in a multidisciplinary field; 3) Identify relevant concepts: one of the most difficult tasks when you are new in a research field is to learn the “language” of the field. Open Knowledge Maps makes it easier for you by labeling research areas with relevant concepts; and 4) Find open content: our knowledge maps include both closed and open access papers. However we highlight open access papers – and the majority of those papers can be read from within the interface. And if not, the fulltext is only a click away. How it works: a) An Open Knowledge Maps visualization presents you with a topical overview for your search term. It is based on the 100 most relevant documents for your search term; b) They use text similarity to create the knowledge maps. The algorithm groups those papers together that have many words in common; and c) The visualization is intended to give you a head start on your literature search. You can also use Open Knowledge Maps to stay up-to-date – just limit your search to the most recent papers in the options. This will be added to Knowledge Discovery Subject Tracer™.

Introduction to Web Authentication: The New W3C Spec

Introduction to Web Authentication: The New W3C Spec
https://auth0.com/blog/introduction-to-web-authentication/

News about Web Authentication, or WebAuthn for short, reaching maturity and being enabled by default in web browsers hit the headlines recently. Web Authentication is a fairly recent W3C standard backed by major players like Google, Paypal, Mozilla, Microsoft, and Qualcomm. It aims at defining a web-browser API for the creation and use of strong authentication credentials based on public key cryptography. The driving force behind the proposal is to increase security for the authentication process by removing or complementing password-based authentication while remaining convenient for end-users. Although implementations are still in their early days, and the standard has not been finalized, the strong push from major players, and the fact that both Firefox and Chrome are enabling their implementations by default, are strong indicators that this may cause a significant impact in the authentication space.

The Identify Programme

The Identify Programme
https://www.gsma.com/identity/identity-programme

Enabling trust and creating value through digital identity. Across many industries such as entertainment, banking, health and e-government, services and processes are becoming both more digital and more mobile. This has resulted in unprecedented efficiency and convenience for individuals and businesses alike. However, consumers are increasingly demanding to access these services securely by being shielded by robust privacy safeguards and strong data protection. Built on the successes and strategic insights delivered by the GSMA Mobile Identity programme in 2013, the GSMA Identity programme is one of the GSMA’s top four priority programmes. It has developed Mobile Connect, a digital identity solution that offers a safe, seamless and convenient consumer experience, a consistent user interface and low barriers to entry across the digital identity ecosystem – thereby enabling global scale. Mobile Connect is a secure login system that enables individuals to access their online accounts with just a single click or, where appropriate, automatically. Mobile Connect can provide different levels of security, ranging from low-level website access to highly-secure bank-grade authentication. Mobile Connect promises to make passwords a thing of the past. To use the service, individuals subscribing to a participating operator simply need to click on a website’s Mobile Connect button. A new standard in digital authentication, Mobile Connect will help mobile operators to manage consumers’ digital identities across multiple online services, ranging from access to content and services on the web through to more secure e-government and banking services.

Media Forensics (MediFor)

Media Forensics (MediFor)
https://www.darpa.mil/program/media-forensics

Historically, the U.S. Government deployed and operated a variety of collection systems that provided imagery with assured integrity. In recent years however, consumer imaging technology (digital cameras, mobile phones, etc.) has become ubiquitous, allowing people the world over to take and share images and video instantaneously. Mirroring this rise in digital imagery is the associated ability for even relatively unskilled users to manipulate and distort the message of the visual media. While many manipulations are benign, performed for fun or for artistic value, others are for adversarial purposes, such as propaganda or misinformation campaigns. This manipulation of visual media is enabled by the wide scale availability of sophisticated image and video editing applications that permit editing in ways that are very difficult to detect either visually or with current image analysis and visual media forensics tools. The forensic tools used today lack robustness and scalability, and address only some aspects of media authentication; an end-to-end platform to perform a complete and automated forensic analysis does not exist. DARPA’s MediFor program brings together world-class researchers to attempt to level the digital imagery playing field, which currently favors the manipulator, by developing technologies for the automated assessment of the integrity of an image or video and integrating these in an end-to-end media forensics platform. If successful, the MediFor platform will automatically detect manipulations, provide detailed information about how these manipulations were performed, and reason about the overall integrity of visual media to facilitate decisions regarding the use of any questionable image or video.
