As part of feral IoT project that tracks feral pigs and buffaloes to understand their landscape use and environmental impact in the top end, check out the latest animation below of pig movement from our trackers:
We have just published a paper at the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Journal titled “Modeling stochastic processes in disease spread across a heterogeneous social system” by Kim, Paini, and Jurdak. The study infers probabilistic infection routes of a vector-borne disease, by modeling internal dynamics of metapopulations driven by human mobility as […]
Two of our papers have been ranked as some of the top-cited papers by Google Scholar at their respective venues. The Google Scholar rankings, which consider the period of the last 5 years, rank our paper Blockchain for IoT security and privacy: The case study of a smart home. as the 3rd most cited paper at Percom […]
