DAPS 2017
Description:

The increasing availability of Big Data, able to capture diverse collective phenomena, provides an unprecedented opportunity to explore the patterns underlying success. From the strategies followed by successful sportsmen to the emergence of runaway videos on YouTube, from popularity in social media to rising starts in the scientific enterprise, from widespread technologies to groundbreaking innovations, there is wealth of data that can be explored to answer common questions: How can we measure performance? What are the common patterns of success?

Data analysis & Social Mining for the Interconnected Society
Description:

The rapid growth of the Internet and the Web, the speed with which global communication and trade now takes place, and the fast spreading around the world of news and information as well as epidemics, trends, financial crises and social: these are all signals that mankind has entered a new era, a new techno-social ecosystem whose inner mechanisms are different from before, and largely unveiled.

Conference on Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency FAT*

FAT* Conference
Description:

Algorithmic systems are being adopted in a growing number of contexts. Fueled by big data, these systems filter, sort, score, recommend, personalize, and otherwise shape human experiences of socio-technical systems. Although these systems bring myriad benefits, they also contain inherent risks, such as codifying and entrenching biases; reducing accountability and hindering due process; and increasing the information assymmetry between data producers and data holders.

Seminar: The illusion that comes with a price: privacy on the web

Start:

Speaker:
Gábor György Gulyás, Postdoctoral Researcher, Privatics team, Inria
Location:
Aula Faedo, ISTI-CNR, Pisa, Italy
Description:

We are used to the fact that things are free on the web. Since the Snowden case, more people know that even free services have their price. In spite of this, most of us still don't take any countermeasures to protect their privacy. But is it hard to protect our online activities? Or is this battle already lost? The first part of this talk will be an overview of the history of web privacy, how and why our online presence is exploited in exchange of getting some services for free.

The program is free for fellows. Employers only pay a tuition fee if they successfully hire.

Why Open Access? A researcher's perspective

Start:
2015/10/23 14:30 Europe/Rome
End:
2015/10/23 16:30 Europe/Rome
Speaker:
Prof. Jean-Claude Guédon, Université de Montréal, Montréal, Canada
Location:
Aula A-27, ISTI-CNR, Pisa, Italy
Description:

Open Access is a consequence of digitization; it began its “public life” after the publication of the Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI) in 2002. In the last dozen of years, it has moved through the usual phases of movements that do not go away: at first, it was ignored; then it was laughed at; later on it was fought and resisted.

In 2015, we are clearly in the last phase, and perhaps even beyond: even large commercial publishers are finding ways to compose with Open Access. The issue is no longer whether Open Access will survive, but rather in what form will it evolve?

DyNo: 1st International Workshop on Dynamics in Networks

DyNo
Description:

In the last years we witnessed to a shift from static network analysis to a dynamic networks analysis, i.e., the study of networks whose structure change over time. As time goes by, all the perturbations which occur on the network topology due to the rise and fall of nodes and edges have repercussions on the network phenomena we are used to observe. As an example, evolution over time of social interactions in a network can play an important role in the diffusion of an infectious disease.
