Telecommunications company Orange has partnered with Polish blockchain company Smartkey to improve access controls to buildings and city services across Poland. Several city governments already use Orange’s IoT platform to remotely manage city services such as street lighting control. The partnership builds upon this technology by integrating Smartkey’s blockchain solution, which ensures that the data from the IoT sensors cannot be falsified after its creation. When combined, the two platforms will enable authorized city residents to gain quicker access to specific buildings and city and commercial services. Eighty cities will participate in the initial rollout. #blockchain #cities #poland
IBM has released an open dataset of coding samples, which demonstrate programming tasks, to help train AI systems to write code. The dataset, known as Project CodeNet, includes 14 million code samples in 55 different programming languages. Researchers at IBM have already begun using the dataset to train AI systems to write code and found that the systems achieved a 90 percent accuracy rate in most code classification and code similarity experiments. #ai #ibm
All viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, change over time. Most changes have little to no impact on the virus’ properties. However, some changes may affect the virus’s properties, such as how easily it spreads, the associated disease severity, or the performance of vaccines, therapeutic medicines, diagnostic tools, or other public health and social measures. #coronavirus #who

The more collective the harm, the less people are protected and the less visible it is. The more the harm is individual, the more visible its impacts are and the more people are legally protected. If a person is discriminated against because of protected characteristics such as their age, gender or ethnicity, it will be visible to them and they will hopefully be in a position to seek redress. When a person is discriminated against due to an algorithmic decision, it is likely to be less visible and, currently, hard to seek redress. #data-literacy #privacy #report

Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability and Reusability – the FAIR principles – intend to define a minimal set of related but independent and separable guiding principles and practices that enable both machines and humans to find, access, interoperate and re-use data and metadata. The FAIR principles were defined in 2016 in an article by Mark Wilkinson et. al. The principles have to be considered as inspiring concepts but not strict rules. This means that they may lead to diverse interpretations and ambiguity.
To remedy the proliferation of FAIRness measurements based on different interpretations of the principles, the RDA Working Group “FAIR data maturity model” established in January 2019 aims to develop a common set of core assessment criteria for FAIRness, as an RDA Recommendation. In the course of 2019 and the first half of 2020, the WG established a set of indicators and maturity levels for those indicators. As a result of the work, a first set of guidelines and a checklist related to the implementation of the indicators were produced, with the objective to further align the guidelines for evaluating FAIRness with the needs of the community. #fair #interoperability
Today, the EU Digital COVID Certificate has reached another important milestone with the go-live of the technical system at EU level, which allows to verify certificates in a secure and privacy-friendly way. The EU certificate was proposed by the Commission to resume safe travelling this summer. It will be free of charge, secure and accessible to all. Available in digital format or on paper, it will be a proof that a person has been vaccinated against COVID-19, tested negative, or recovered from an infection. #coronavirus #eu #health-passport

The European Digital Identity will be available to EU citizens, residents, and businesses who want to identify themselves or provide confirmation of certain personal information. It can be used for both online and offline public and private services across the EU. Every EU citizen and resident in the Union will be able to use a personal digital wallet. #eu #identity

The research reveals some of the broad shapes and patterns of the tech and data ecosystem and its relationships to current ethics tools. It covers three key sections:
- Early tech and data ethics tools and their users
- The evolving tech and data ethics landscape
- Lessons for the next generation of tech and data ethics tools
Join the Fing Data Day and explore the strategic opportunities to co-design data projects between cities. To help you prepare to take part in the discussion, we drafted this extensive participant handbook. #cities
Sitra the Finnish Innovation Fund is continuing their fine efforts in Fair Data Economy, as it is now becoming a new thematic area. At the same time, the IHAN project, who has funded MyData Global also, is ending as such. #collaboration #data-economy #sitra
On December 30, 2019, BlueDot, a Toronto-based startup that uses a platform built around artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data to track and predict the outbreak and spread of infectious diseases, alerted its private sector and government clients about a cluster of “unusual pneumonia” cases happening around a market in Wuhan, China. #ai #coronavirus #forecast
TypingDNA records typing biometrics data, also known as keystroke dynamics. The data consists of timings and durations of various key press events. Every new user enrolls typing patterns to store a baseline of their typing behavior.
