Traffic Light Protocol (TLP) Definitions and Usage

October 03, 2018

Traffic Light Protocol (TLP) Definitions and Usage
https://www.us-cert.gov/tlp

The Traffic Light Protocol (TLP) was created in order to facilitate greater sharing of information. TLP is a set of designations used to ensure that sensitive information is shared with the appropriate audience. It employs four colors to indicate expected sharing boundaries to be applied by the recipient(s). TLP only has four colors; any designations not listed in this standard are not considered valid by FIRST. TLP provides a simple and intuitive schema for indicating when and how sensitive information can be shared, facilitating more frequent and effective collaboration. TLP is not a “control marking” or classification scheme. TLP was not designed to handle licensing terms, handling and encryption rules, and restrictions on action or instrumentation of information. TLP labels and their definitions are not intended to have any effect on freedom of information or “sunshine” laws in any jurisdiction. TLP is optimized for ease of adoption, human readability and person-to-person sharing; it may be used in automated sharing exchanges, but is not optimized for that use. TLP is distinct from the Chatham House Rule (when a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.), but may be used in conjunction if it is deemed appropriate by participants in an information exchange. The source is responsible for ensuring that recipients of TLP information understand and can follow TLP sharing guidance. If a recipient needs to share the information more widely than indicated by the original TLP designation, they must obtain explicit permission from the original source.

Mnemosyne

Mnemosyne
http://www.mnemosyne-proj.org

Mnemosyne is an accelerated learning flashcard program that uses the SuperMemo spaced repetition system. Users can create cards containing not just text but also images, sound, movies, and more. It’s even possible to embed interactive elements using Javascript. Cards can be categorized into one or more tags, and the tags themselves can be organized into a hierarchy. As a user works through their sets of cards, Mnemosyne collects and summarizes learning statistics illustrating the user’s progress. Within an individual study session, users may opt to focus on a subset of cards or enter cramming mode to review a selection of cards as many times as desired. Numerous pre-made Mnemosyne decks can be downloaded from the website. Users may also import cards from Anki, SuperMemo, or CueCard. Mnemosyne’s sync protocol can be used to share data across multiple machines. Mnemosyne is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux. Source code can be located on GitHub.

Credit Research Initiative (CRI)

Credit Research Initiative (CRI)
https://www.rmicri.org/

The Credit Research Initiative (CRI) is a non-profit undertaking at the Risk Management Institute (RMI) of the National University of Singapore. It was launched in July 2009 by then the RMI director Professor Duan Jin-Chuan with the able assistance from Dr. Oliver Chen. Over the course of its development, the CRI has been dedicating to promoting the research on credit risk and offering directly useful credit analytics to the market participants. The CRI uses scientific methods (e.g. forward-intensity default prediction model, Duan et. al. 2012, Journal of Econometrics, and others) to provide credit ratings for exchange-listed companies around the world. Up to date, the CRI has developed a number of data products, including the Probability of Default (PD), Actuarial Spread (AS), and the Corporate Vulnerability Index (CVI) that are updated daily with newly collected information. The rating data are available for over 68,000 firms in 128 economies and are accessible through this website free of charge. Some of them can alternatively be obtained through Bloomberg, CBonds, and Thomson Reuters potentially at a cost wherever requested by the data distributors. As a research center, the CRI produces a suite of publications (Weekly Credit Brief, Quarterly Credit Review, Global Credit Review, and Special Reports) to disseminate novel technologies in credit research and release commentaries on the occurrences in the credit market. To promote the exchange of perspectives and expertise, the CRI regularly hosts visits of experts from research bodies (call for proposal) and other professional organizations. Thanks to its unique data management infrastructure and credit analytics expertise, the CRI has been constantly called upon by corporates, financial institutions, and international organizations, such as IMF, for its value-added services. Based on their various requests, the CRI has helped the external parties to compile data in prescribed formats, build bespoke models, create readily actionable toolboxes, etc. The CRI adopts a “public good” approach to building its credit ratings infrastructure, much like the way in which the public sector does for highways and public educational systems. Its rating data are released daily on its website and are available for free. Its rating methodologies are also made available publicly. This will be added to Financial Sources Subject Tracer™.

Next Step for Artificial Intelligence: The Autonomous Enterprise by Chuck Hollis

Next Step for Artificial Intelligence: The Autonomous Enterprise by Chuck Hollis
https://www.forbes.com/sites/oracle/2018/08/23/next-step-for-artificial-intelligence-the-autonomous-enterprise
/#56eb253126b9

We are still in the early days of artificial intelligence and machine learning transforming many aspects of our world, including how work gets done. For those of you who can remember how work got done before computers, the internet, and mobile, you have a sense of just how transformational new technologies can be. The previous wave of transformational technologies led to organizations that were inherently more connected than before. Information and decisions flowed much faster as a result. The current wave will lead to what Chuck Hollis started to call the autonomous enterprise: an organization where many decisions are made with the help of machine learning. And, once again, before long we won’t be able to imagine doing work any other way. Excellent read …. This will be added to Artificial Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.
