Quantizing Personal Privacy in Ubiquitous Computing

Tinghuai Ma
2011 KSII Transactions on Internet and Information Systems  
Privacy is one of the most important and difficult research issues in ubiquitous computing. It is qualitative rather than quantitative.  ...  Instead of using the traditional simple rule engine, we implement this scheme in a complex way. In addition, we design the scenario to explain the implementation of our scheme.  ...  We provide a mechanism for user to dynamically modify his privacy level for disclosing information according to the capability of the environment"s privacy protected level.  ...

Electrome & Cognition Modes in Plants: A Transdisciplinary Approach to the Eco-Sensitiveness of the World

Marc-Williams Debono
2020 Transdisciplinary Journal of Engineering & Science  
This dynamic coupling makes it possible to explain the co-construction ofan intelligible and sensible world without the use of a brain, principle that reframes the concept of intelligentbehavior while  ...  Recent studies on plant-environment and plant-human relationships reveal the need to reassess thescales of perception, sensitiveness and cognition of living systems.  ...  Anyway, for us, the question to be addressed is how the dynamic coupling of plant and the environment permits a cognitive access to the experience of reality?  ...

Dave M. Leathwick, Christian W. Sauermann, Martin K. Nielsen
2019 International Journal for Parasitology: Drugs and Drug Resistance  
Selective anthelmintic therapy has been recommended as a sustainable strategy for cyathostomin control in horse populations for several decades.  ...  The traditional approach has been to determine strongyle fecal egg counts (FEC) for all horses, with treatment only recommended for those exceeding a predetermined threshold.  ...  Climate data were sourced through the National Centers for Environmental Information (www.ncdc.noaa.gov) and Deutscher Wetterdienst (www.dwd.de).  ...
