“Applied Science in Yahoo! Labs is a unique blend of theory and application. Scientists look for opportunities to bring inter-disciplinary technologies, improvements and insights to bear on real business problems. They create algorithms, systems and tools to help our advertisers and publishers understand and address the evolving web marketplace, and build and enhance the economic platforms and systems that carry out user transactions at scale. They understand the current complexities and issues in the internet marketplace and infrastructure, and apply the latest science from fields like informational retrieval, machine learning, statistics, multimedia, human computer interaction, data mining, optimization and micro-economics“.
SecNet – Department of Computer Science, University of Turin
The Security and Networks group is headed by Full Professor Francesco Bergadano in the Department of Computer Science of the University of Turin. They investigate “some security features, like encryption, access control, public key certification, authentication, non-repudiation and signature functions in order to provide not just security services but to add also new functionality directly into the hand of the users. The effect of security services will be twofold: to keep evil away and to have a richer functionality than before.“
