Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) scientists in Korea have developed algorithms that more efficiently measure how difficult it would be for an attacker to guess secret keys for cryptographic systems. The approach they used was described in the journal IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security and could reduce the computational complexity … [Read more...] about Algorithms improve how we protect our data: New algorithms are much better at estimating the security level of encrypted data
Artificial intelligence that enhances remote monitoring of water bodies -- highlighting quality shifts due to climate change or pollution -- has been developed by researchers at the University of Stirling. A new algorithm -- known as the 'meta-learning' method -- analyses data directly from satellite sensors, making it easier for coastal zone, environmental and industry … [Read more...] about Artificial intelligence to monitor water quality more effectively
