Public Lecture - Bruce Schneier

On Monday 06 October, computer security expert Bruce Schneier will speak at The Second Annual Front Line Defenders Lecture to be held in partnership with University College Dublin and Trinity College Dublin. This public lecture, entitled "Is it Possible to be Safe Online? Human Rights Defenders and the Internet", will explore the issues faced by human rights defenders and activists on the ground as the use of computers and the Internet in their work is becoming increasingly commonplace and the threats posed by governments manipulating, monitoring and subverting electronic information, increased surveillance and censorship and the lack of security for digitally communicated and stored information is on the rise.

SFI Industry Fellowship on performance improvement of Urban Mobility Simulation

Anthony Ventresque

Dr Anthony Ventresque has been awarded an SFI Industry Fellowship of €110,000 to work in collaboration with IBM Research Lab in Dublin on performance improvement of Urban Mobility Simulation. This project is related to the fast and accurate simulation of what-if scenarios in the application area of Smarter Transportation. Transport Mobility Simulation is a very computationally expensive process; however, applications of this technology require super fast solutions which are largely unavailable.
