The collaboration network, the productivity, and the research impact of the studies of the researcher are possibly affected every time a researcher changes their host institution. For all these reasons, mobility - both international and domestic - is rightly considered a very important part of the research career.

Mobility is an important aspect of a researcher's life, affecting the career of the scientist in many ways: through the change of host institutions, new career opportunities are chased, positions with higher prestige acquired, stronger collaborati..

Ethical issues surrounding AI use in law often share a common theme. As AI becomes increasingly integrated within the legal system, how can society ensure that core legal values are preserved? (Surden, 2019)

In September 2020, Oxford University Press published The Oxford Handbook of Ethics and AI. This work comprises 44 different contributions divided in five sections and is edited by Markus D...

Mathematically speaking, the privacy risk value of an individual corresponds to the probability of being re-identified, depending on the background knowledge information the adversary has. We propose a new approach that uses Recurrent Neural Networks to predict the privacy risk for human mobility data.

Our aim is to provide analysis of exactly why dark data goes dark in the fair place, develop concrete strategies for how we might best enact the FAIR principles in an effort to reduce dark data, and finally to interrogate the FAIR principles themselves

Modern high-performance computing facilities (HPCs) generate a colossal amount of data...

Through the analysis, we not only measure the monthly peacefulness per country, but we also discover the most important socio-economic, political, and military factors that capture peacefulness or extraordinary events. For example, the most important factors for Somalia are related to military engagement and improvised explosives showing the war-torn profile of the country.
