The foundation of modern cryptography is the notion of proof of security. There are two basic notions of security: information-theoretic security and computational security.

For symmetric cipher systems one can prove unconditional security against an opponent with unlimited computational power. The proof of perfect secrecy is based on the notion of entropy, introduced by Shannon, measuring the amount of information in situations where unlimited computational power is available.

Mobile devices have traditionally been viewed as “thin clients” or “edge devices” that serve primarily as user-input devices, but that are expected to offload the compute-intensive processing to (non-edge, back-end) servers. With technology advances, there exists the potential now to view mobile devices as “thick clients,” and going even further, to rethink them as “thin servers". Given the proliferation and enhanced capabilities of mobile devices, the realization of a “wireless cloud of nearby smartphones” is now within grasp.

The SIBILA project aims at developing a set of tools that will effectively support the decisionmaking process in organizations, and facilitate the process of building data-driven solutions. 

These tools will be able to process and represent complex sources of data, such as multirelational and/or web data, and to, given a user-defined task, semi-automatically select the best components at hand and compose them together. To do so, SIBILA will require progress at the level of knowledge representation and data mining techniques.

News media are at a point of historic transition. The conjuncture of digital and social media is merging the roles of readers and providers. Readers are increasingly participating in the news media cycle, where news are written, published, commented, associated with other news, improved, and published again. The future of news depends on harnessing the participation of readers in the global process of production and consumption of news. News media increasingly depends on the participation of readers.
