    The rise of connectivity, digitalization, robotics, and artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing our society and shaping its future development. During this technological and societal revolution, security has been persistently neglected, yet a hacked robot can act as an insider threat in organizations, industries, public spaces, and private homes. In this paper, we perform a structured security assessment of Pepper, a commercial humanoid robot. Our analysis, composed by an automated and a manual part, points out a relevant number of security flaws that can be used to take over and command the robot. Furthermore, we suggest how these issues could be fixed, thus, avoided in the future. The very final aim of this work is to push the rise of the security level of IoT products before they are sold on the public market.Comment: 8 pages, 3 figures, 4 table

    Multifunctional crop trait ontology for breeders' data: field book, annotation, data discovery and semantic enrichment of the literature

    Get PDF
    The ‘Crop Ontology’ database we describe provides a controlled vocabulary for several economically important crops. It facilitates data integration and discovery from global databases and digital literature. This allows researchers to exploit comparative phenotypic and genotypic information of crops to elucidate functional aspects of traits

    The SatNOGS Website project aims to create a web interface for the SatNOGS, or Satellite Network Open Ground Stations, project. The intent of the ongoing project is to make the main SatNOGS project more accessible by creating a web-based software system that contains many of the necessary features needed to run a ground station, and do it in a way that is visually appealing and human-friendly, and to also provide an extension to the main client for control and information presentation needs. A large feature that the application will offer is displaying much of the information that the transmitter is receiving, such as where in the sky the satellite that is being observed is at, whether the ground station is currently on the network, whether it is able to receive information, and even more data on the satellite it is looking at, including possibly a picture and the raw data the satellite is transmitting. This work is being done in collaboration with the ECE Department at Valparaiso University, which is working on aspects of the physical and electronic components. This project, in addition to contributing to this international effort, also provides a laboratory for experiencing and learning the technology and processes for large-scale software system construction

    This paper examines the current status of a New Zealand educational institution’s website and makes a comparison among 44 samples. Two main sections have been contained in this research, secondary resource collection and observation. The aim of this research is to raise the awareness of this organisation and to attract potential students from the Chinese market by improve the organisation’s official website. This is desk research which has made use of qualitative methods. The results of the secondary resource collection mainly illustrate the general concepts of website design, the key factors of the education website, and Chinese web page preferences. The results from observation of 44 samples have been divided into two aspects, functionality and content. Most educational institution website pages are functional, while their online communication channels are basically limited to social media links; from the content point of view, school websites with Chinese versions generally have poor translations, and existing educational institution website samples can provide the information that the viewer needs through different presentation methods. These differences are explained in the discussion section. In conclusion, it suggested that in the current stage, educational institution websites could gain development by diversifying their communication channels and information presentation
