The Malicious Use of Artificial Intelligence: Forecasting, Prevention, and Mitigation

Posted in Artificial Intelligence on February 21st, 2018 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Twenty-six authors from 14 institutions have released The Malicious Use of Artificial Intelligence: Forecasting, Prevention, and Mitigation.

Here's an excerpt:

This report surveys the landscape of potential security threats from malicious uses of artificial intelligence technologies, and proposes ways to better forecast, prevent, and mitigate these threats. We analyze, but do not conclusively resolve, the question of what the long-term equilibrium between attackers and defenders will be. We focus instead on what sorts of attacks we are likely to see soon if adequate defenses are not developed

The Visibility of Open Access Monographs in a European Context: A Report Prepared by Knowledge Unlatched Research

Posted in E-Books, Open Access, Publishing, Reports and White Papers, Scholarly Books on February 21st, 2018 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Knowledge Unlatched Research has released The Visibility of Open Access Monographs in a European Context: A Report Prepared by Knowledge Unlatched Research.

Here's an excerpt:

This report explores the extent to which Open Access (OA) specialist scholarly books can be seen by the communities that might make use of them. It also identifies the key challenges that will need to be tackled in order to ensure that OA books are fully integrated into digital landscapes of scholarship; as well as the steps that need to be taken to achieve this goal. The report focuses on Open Access books made available by publishers and platforms that are part of the OPERAS network, which is focused on the development of European research infrastructure for the development of open scholarly communication. Specialist scholarly books are the core research output of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Ensuring that they are integrated into digital landscapes of scholarship will play a decisive role in the future of these disciplines, and their impact on the world. Identifying gaps in existing infrastructure and creating a roadmap to address them is vital groundwork.

"Reimagining the Digital Monograph Design Thinking to Build New Tools for Researchers"

Posted in E-Books, Open Source Software, Publishing, Scholarly Books on February 20th, 2018 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

The Journal of Electronic Publishing has released "Reimagining the Digital Monograph Design Thinking to Build New Tools for Researchers."

JSTOR Labs, an experimental product development group within the not-for-profit digital library JSTOR, undertook an ideation and design process to develop new and different ways of showing scholarly books online, with the goal that this new viewing interface be relatively simple and inexpensive to implement for any scholarly book that is already available in PDF form. This paper documents that design process, including the recommendations of a working group of scholars, publishers, and librarians convened by JSTOR Labs and the Columbia University Libraries in October 2016. The prototype monograph viewer developed through this process—called "Topicgraph"—is described herein and is freely available online at https://labs.jstor.org/topicgraph.
