Critical infrastructure attacks - is Europe ready?

PRESENTED ON MAY 17, 2019
@ SCIENCE FOR EUROPE, SCIENCE FOR ME, POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA

The systems that make our every-day lives possible are highly interdependent. Transport, communication systems, energy and water utilities rely on each other. Natural disasters or man-made hazards can lead to a cascade of these critical infrastructure failures, with alarming effects. In this talk, JRC researcher Georgios Giannopoulous explains what systems are in place to protect critical infrastructure so that the end-users do not need to worry about potential problems.

Science Fiction, Science Fact

BY ALASTAIR FAIRLEY
@ VOL 2 ON MAR 08, 2016

"These days, if you can think it, it's a pretty sure bet science is not going to be far behind"

In Science Fiction, Science Fact from PechaKucha Night Bexhill on Sea Vol. 2Alastair Fairley talks about the crossing (for better or worse) of science and fiction. How programmes such as Siri, Facetime and even the internet were once just ideas; fast forward and these very ideas have been fabricated into our everyday lives. 

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 30th, 2017.

What Europe could learn from nerds

BY VALENTIN CALOMME
@ VOL 32 ON FEB 06, 2017

The European Union is facing a crisis. A large part of the population either does not understand it, finds it intrusive, or even thinks that it is simply not needed, sometimes all of the above. Thankfully, nerds are here to help, says Valentin Calomme. Not with a magical app or piece of software, but with the wisdom of mathematics.

The Truth About Lies

BY MARTIN ATKINSON
@ SCIENCE FOR EUROPE, SCIENCE FOR ME, POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON MAY 17, 2019

It might seem like fake news is a problem of the modern world, but there's nothing new about the art of the lie. Politicians have always lied and will always lie. And there have always been forces that try to fight disinformation. In this talk, JRC researcher Martin Atkinson explains what science and technology can do to detect liars and how these tools are used to fight disinformation in the EU.

Disasters that make us stronger

BY TOM DE GROEVE
@ SCIENCE FOR EUROPE, SCIENCE FOR ME, POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON MAY 17, 2019

Earthquakes, tsunamis and other natural disasters are scary and they can cause a lot of damage. Sometimes it seems that things are only getting worse, which might lead us to have a pessimistic view of the world. In this talk, JRC scientist Tom de Groeve explains how EU scientists continue to study disasters, and how this knowledge makes our society more resilient.

The invisible work against terrorism

BY MARTIN LARCHER
@ SCIENCE FOR EUROPE, SCIENCE FOR ME, POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON MAY 17, 2019

Terrorists are invisible. It is impossible to find a terrorist in a crowded place full of people. Terrorism is based on fear. This fear might prevent people from doing things that they would normally do, going to places they used to visit, or just enjoying life. We might feel powerless with the knowledge that there is not much we can do about this threat. But in reality, a lot is being done. In this presentation, JRC researcher Martin Larcher talks about the invisible work to protect people from terrorism

How to measure fairness

BY MICHAELA SAISANA
@ SCIENCE FOR EUROPE, SCIENCE FOR ME, POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON MAY 17, 2019

Seventy years of peace, this is what the EU has given to European citizens. Our generations are the first generations in 500 years that have lived their entire lives in peace anywhere in the European Union. And yet, recent events show a growing discontent among the European populations. The EU took these warning signs seriously, with concrete aims to make the EU a fair place to live for everyone. The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) was asked to measure fairness. In this talk, JRC scientist Michaela Saisana explains what fairness is, and how it can be measured.
