The Joint Research Center (JRC) in cooperation with the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) and the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC), European Commission’s Directorate General Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CNECT), and the German Institute of Standardisation (DIN), organised in Brussels on 28-29 March 2019 the Putting-Science-Into-Standards (PSIS) workshop on Quantum Technologies.
With new legislation on data protection in the EU now in place, our greatest challenge moving into 2020 is to ensure that this legislation produces the promised results. This includes ensuring that new rules on ePrivacy remain firmly on the EU agenda. Awareness of the issues surrounding data protection and privacy and the importance of rotecting these fundamental rights is at an all time high and we cannot allow this momentum to decline.
The SciPy library, accompanied by its interdependent NumPy, offers Python programmers advanced functions that work with arrays and matrices. Each section presents a complete demo program for programmers to experiment with, carefully chosen examples to best illustrate each function, and resources for further learning. Use this e-book to install and edit SciPy, and use arrays, matrices, and combinatorics in Python programming.
Data Structures Succinctly Part 2 is your concise guide to skip lists, hash tables, heaps, priority queues, AVL trees, and B-trees. As with the first book, you’ll learn how the structures behave, how to interact with them, and their performance limitations. Starting with skip lists and hash tables, and then moving to complex AVL trees and B-trees, author Robert Horvick explains what each structure’s methods and classes are, the algorithms behind them, and what is necessary to keep them valid.
Data Structures Succinctly Part 1 is your first step to a better understanding of the different types of data structures, how they behave, and how to interact with them. Starting with simple linked lists and arrays, and then moving to more complex structures like binary search trees and sets, author Robert Horvick explains what each structure’s methods and classes are and the algorithms behind them. Horvick goes a step further to detail their operational and resource complexity, ensuring that you have a clear understanding of what using a specific data structure entails.
Who might face civil liability if autonomous vehicles (AVs) are hacked to steal data or inflict mayhem, injuries, and damage? How will the civil justice and insurance systems adjust to handle such claims? RAND researchers addressed these questions to help those in the automotive, technology, legal, and insurance industries prepare for the shifting roles and responsibilities that the era of AVs may bring.
The document presents the value of the cybersecurity standardisation efforts for certification, the roles and responsibilities of Standards Developing Organisations (SDOs) in this context, and discusses various ways how standardisation can support efficiently the process of certification schemes creation by following a step by step methodology.
Digital solutions for healthcare open a plethora of new possibilities in this area. They provide a technical base for easy testing, they improve significantly the quality of service by allowing immediate access to medical data – results of tests, history of treatment; they facilitate correct diagnosis by easier analytics and correlation of data and easier monitoring of patients’ health parameters. They facilitate setting up appointments with appropriate doctors at a convenient time
