Lumen Privacy Monitor
Lumen analyzes your app's traffic and allows you to stay on control over your app's communication patterns.

Lumen reveals how your mobile apps communicate with tracking services and how they collect sensitive personal information about you. Lumen does not require root permissions and works even on encrypted traffic for most Android versions. In the new version, you can also have a direct access to block undesired flows for a given app and also to configure app permissions to better stay in control over who has access to your personal data.

Lumen is an academic research project led by the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI), UC Berkeley and IMDEA Networks to illuminate the mobile ecosystem with real user input. It is sponsored by the NSF (National Science Foundation) and the Data Transparency Lab.

By installing Lumen, you also participate on an academic research project that aims to better understand the mobile app ecosystem. You can see our publication record on our project website https://haystack.mobi/

Open Hub, the open source network - Discover, Track and Compare Open Source
an online community and public directory of free and open source software (FOSS), offering analytics and search services for discovering, evaluating, tracking, and comparing open source code and projects

The Open Hub is not a forge — it does not host projects and code. The Open Hub is a directory and community, offering analytics and search services and tools. By connecting to project source code repositories, analyzing both the code’s history and ongoing updates, and attributing those updates to specific contributors, the Black Duck Open Hub can provide reports about the composition and activity of project code bases and aggregate this data to track the changing demographics of the FOSS world.

Partisan - High-Performance Distributed Erlang
Partisan is the design of an alternative runtime system for improved scalability and reduced latency in actor applications.

Partisan provides:

Better scalability by leveraging different network topologies for communication
Reduced latency through efficient parallel message scheduling for actor-to-actor communication

Partisan is provided as a user library in Erlang and achieves up to an order of magnitude increase in the number of nodes the system can scale to through runtime overlay selection, up to a 34.96x increase in throughput, and up to a 13.4x reduction in latency over Distributed Erlang.

EventKG
The EventKG is a novel multilingual resource incorporating event-centric information extracted from several large-scale knowledge graphs such as Wikidata, DBpedia and YAGO, as well as less structured sources such as the Wikipedia Current Events Portal and Wikipedia event lists in six languages. The EventKG is an extensible event-centric resource modeled in RDF. It relies on Open Data and best practices to make event data spread across different sources available through a common representation and reusable for a variety of novel algorithms and real-world applications.

MOUSEJACK - Wireless Mouse Hacks & Network Security Protection | Mousejack
MouseJack is a class of vulnerabilities that affects the vast majority of wireless, non-Bluetooth keyboards and mice. These peripherals are 'connected' to a host computer using a radio transceiver, commonly a small USB dongle. Since the connection is wireless, and mouse movements and keystrokes are sent over the air, it is possible to compromise a victim's computer by transmitting specially-crafted radio signals using a device which costs as little as $15.


An attacker can launch the attack from up to 100 meters away. The attacker is able to take control of the target computer, without physically being in front of it, and type arbitrary text or send scripted commands. It is therefore possible to perform rapidly malicious activities without being detected.

The MouseJack exploit centers around injecting unencrypted keystrokes into a target computer. Mouse movements are usually sent unencrypted, and keystrokes are often encrypted (to prevent eavesdropping what is being typed). However the MouseJack vulnerability takes advantage of affected receiver dongles, and their associated software, allowing unencrypted keystrokes transmitted by an attacker to be passed on to the computer's operating system as if the victim had legitimately typed them.

cuML and Dask hyperparameter optimization
cuML emulates the scikit-learn API. GridSearchCV or RandomizedSearchCV are used to define the search space for hyper-parameters. Dask-ML improves efficiency of that search. cuML is a drop-in replacement for scikit-learn. Still in development really, but even more significant speed gains are expected soon; direction already known.
