Technologies are not neutral, neither are choices in the public procurement of AI. The AI systems we deploy today are the systems we will live with tomorrow.

In their efforts to tackle the COVID-19 crisis, decision makers are considering the development and use of smartphone applications for contact tracing. Even though these applications differ in technology and methods, there is an increasing concern about their implications for privacy and human rights. Here we propose a framework to evaluate their suitability in terms of impact on the users, employed technology and governance methods.
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.
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.
Advanced R helps you understand how R works at a fundamental level. It is designed for R programmers who want to deepen their understanding of the language, and programmers experienced in other languages who want to understand what makes R different and special. This book will teach you the foundations of R; three fundamental programming paradigms (functional, object-oriented, and metaprogramming); and powerful techniques for debugging and optimising your code.
