[more ▼] Since the publication of the first Shanghai ranking in 2003, the international rankings of universities have become evermore important. This book examines the evolution of higher education systems and the role of universities in contemporary societies, which are marked by increased competition and tensions. Investigating whether the dynamism of universities is an accurate indicator of the intellectual life of their civilizations, Universities and Civilizations systematically analyzes the evolution of universities in several main rankings, from their creation until now.

[more ▼] The range of applications of Neural Networks encompasses image classification. However, Neural Networks are vulnerable to attacks, and may misclassify adversarial images, leading to potentially disastrous consequences. Pursuing some of our previous work, we provide an extended proof of concept of a black-box, targeted, non-parametric attack using evolutionary algorithms to fool both Neural Networks and humans at the task of image classification. Our feasibility study is performed on VGG-16 trained on CIFAR-10. For any category cA of CIFAR-10, one chooses an image A classified by VGG-16 as belonging to cA. From there, two scenarios are addressed. In the first scenario, a target category ct≠cA is fixed a priori. We construct an evolutionary algorithm that evolves A to a modified image that VGG-16 classifies as belonging to ct. In the second scenario, we construct another evolutionary algorithm that evolves A to a modified image that VGG-16 is unable to classify. In both scenarios, the obtained adversarial images remain so close to the original one that a human would likely classify them as still belonging to cA.

[more ▼] Deep Neural Networks are used for a wide range of critical applications, notably for image recognition. The ability to deceive their recognition abilities is an active research domain, since successful deceptions may have disastrous consequences. Still, humans sometimes detect mistakes made by machines when they classify images. One can conceive a system able to solicit humans in case of doubts, namely when humans and machines may disagree. Using Information Hiding techniques, we describe a strategy to construct evolutionary algorithms able to fool both neural networks and humans for image recognition. Although this research is still exploratory, we already describe a concrete fitness function for a specific scenario. Additional scenarii and further research directions are provided.

[more ▼] Deep Learning is based on deep neural networks trained over huge sets of examples. It enabled computers to compete with ---~or even outperform~--- humans at many tasks, from playing Go to driving vehicules. Still, it remains hard to understand how these networks actually operate. While an observer sees any individual local behaviour, he gets little insight about their global decision-making process. However, there is a class of neural networks widely used for image processing, convolutional networks, where each layer contains features working in parallel. By their structure, these features keep some spatial information across a network's layers. Visualisation of this spatial information at different locations in a network, notably on input data that maximise the activation of a given feature, can give insights on the way the model works. This paper investigates the use of Evolutionary Algorithms to evolve such input images that maximise feature activation. Compared with some pre-existing approaches, ours seems currently computationally heavier but with a wider applicability.

[more ▼] Classical Bloom filters may be used to elegantly check if an element e belongs to a set S, and, if not, to add e to S. They do not store any data and only provide boolean answers regarding the membership of a given element in the set, with some probability of false positive answers. Bloom filters are often used in caching system to check that some requested data actually exist before doing a costly lookup to retrieve them. However, security issues may arise for some other applications where an active attacker is able to inject data crafted to degrade the filters’ algorithmic properties, resulting for instance in a Denial of Service (DoS) situation. This leads us to the concept of hardened Bloom filters, combining classical Bloom filters with cryptographic hash functions and secret nonces. We show how this approach is successfully used in the TrueNyms unobservability system and protects it against replay attacks.

[more ▼] On the one hand, it is well-known that Jacobians of (hyper)elliptic curves defined over $\Q$ having a rational point of order $l$ can be used in many applications, for instance in the construction of class groups of quadratic fields with a non-trivial $l$-rank. On the other hand, it is also well-known that $11$ is the least prime number which is not the order of a rational point of an elliptic curve defined over $\Q$. It is therefore interesting to look for curves of higher genus, whose Jacobians have a rational point of order $11$. This problem has already been addressed, and Flynn found such a family $\Fl_t$ of genus $2$ curves. Now, it turns out, that the Jacobian $J_0(23)$ of the modular genus $2$ curve $X_0(23)$ has the required property, but does not belong to $\Fl_t$. The study of $X_0(23)$ leads to a method to partially solving the considered problem. Our approach allows us to recover $X_0(23)$, and to construct another $18$ distinct explicit curves of genus $2$ defined over $\Q$ and whose Jacobians have a rational point of order $11$. Of these $19$ curves, $10$ do not have any rational Weierstrass point, and $9$ have a rational Weierstrass point. None of these curves are $\Qb$-isomorphic to each other, nor $\Qb$-isomorphic to an element of Flynn's family $\Fl_t$. Finally, the Jacobians of these new curves are absolutely simple.
