Earthquakes: From Twitter Detection to EO Data Processing

Earthquakes: From Twitter Detection to EO Data Processing

“Earthquakes: From Twitter Detection to EO Data Processing” – New joint publication as an outcome of the EOPEN-BETTER synergy The “H2020 Earth Observation Big Data Hackathon”, co-organised by five now completed EU Horizon 2020 projects in the “EO Big Data Shift” topic, sparked the synergy between EOPEN and BETTER, and in particular between CERTH’s M4D/MKLab, ETH’s Department of Earth Sciences, Elecnor Deimos and Terradue Srl. This successful collaboration was captured with the recent publication of a joint article titled “Earthquakes: From Twitter Detection to EO Data Processing” in IEEE’s Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters. The paper presents a pipeline that uses Twitter data to identify locations of earthquakes and uses the information to trigger EO data analysis. The pipeline as well as the use of social media in the population…

Artificial Intelligence Threat Reporting & Incidence report system

Thessaloniki, January 10, 2022 Artificial Intelligence Threat Reporting & Incidence report system   A new EU project has come to protect ICT systems providing collaborative-first approach and state-of-the-art technology IRIS EU project, which consists of 19 partners from 12 European countries, officially launched its activities with the organisation of the consortium kick-off meeting that was held virtually, in September 2021. As existing and emerging smart cities continue to expand their IoT and AI-enabled platforms, novel and complex dimensions to the threat intelligence landscape are introduced. These, are linked with identifying, responding and sharing data related to attack vectors, based on emerging IoT and AI technologies, whose architecture and behaviour are not currently well understood by security practitioners, such as CERTs and CSIRTs. This lack of experience as well as of…
