AIDA’s researchers present poster at EuroSys Conference

AIDA’s researchers present poster at EuroSys 2023 Earlier this month, two researchers from INESC TEC, one partner of the AIDA project, presented a poster at this year EuroSys Conference, in Rome, with the title “Emission-Aware Federated Learning: A Case Study on Transportation and Carbon Footprint”. The poster is focused on the addition of Federated Learning”, which enables the promotion of sustainable and personalised travel behaviours while preserving data privacy. As written in the poster, the main goal of the research “is to preserve the privacy of users data while increasing awareness on their carbon footprint”.  EuroSys Conference is one of […]

There is always one more data bug

There is always one more data bug If we, as data scientists, receive a dataset from a reliable source, we should go ahead with the analysis (classification, clustering, deep learning, etc), right? Well, yes, that’s what most of us (myself included) often do, especially if there is a tight deadline. However, this could be dangerous. Let me describe some rude awakenings I suffered over the past decades, as well as remind you some fast and easy preventive measures.   Examples (a.k.a. horror stories) E1 Geographical data Two decades ago, we got access to a public dataset of cross-roads in California, […]

AIDA presented to PhD students

AIDA presented to PhD students INESC TEC, one of AIDA’s partners, presented AIDA to the Doctoral Program in Computer Science (MAP-I)’S first year students. This visit, which took place on December 6, 2022, happened during a visit to the High-Assurance Software Laboratory from INESC TEC at the University of Minho. This was an opportunity to present the work carried out by the AIDA project and get to know a good example of international collaboration between industry and academia. It is important to mention that the initiative was also an opportunity to share the project’s vision and expected outcomes, while promoting […]

AIDA Research on Suspicious Behavior and Anomaly Detection

AIDA Research on Suspicious Behavior and Anomaly Detection One of the goals of the AIDA Project is to investigate and identify new ways to help Analysts find Anomalous Behavior (of any kind) in large and complex pools of data. We hope this can ultimately lead to significant improvements in the detection of fraudulent activity occurring on Telecom Networks, especially in the light of new technologies like 5G already expanding on the market. Moreover, we now see over more sophisticated, complex and robust methods being used for committing fraud on Telecomm Networks but also increasingly expanding to the world of Communication […]

Protecting the Security and Privacy of AIDA and its Data

Protecting the Security and Privacy of AIDA and its Data Adapting the RAID platform comes with many security and privacy issues that need to be addressed. These issues appear mainly due to the transition to an edge architecture, which imposes the use of computation resources at the edges of the network, but also due to the need of supporting multiple tenants and network slicing with 5G technology. As mobile phones connect and disconnect, the network is always changing, requiring adaptation and monitorization tools to be used to maximize resources. And since the complexity of the system increases, attackers have more […]
