Transparency and the ubiquity of information filtration?
MetadataShow full item record
In past decades, the notion of information filtering was primarily associated with censorship and repressive, non-democratic countries and regimes. However, in the twenty-first century, filtration has become a widespread and increasingly normalised part of daily life. From email filters—designating some messages important, some less important, and others not worth reading at all (spam)—to social networks—with Facebook and Twitter harnessing social ties to curate, sort and share media—through to the biggest filtering agents, the search engines—whose self-professed aims include sorting, and thus implicitly filtering, all our information—filters are inescapable in a digital culture. However, as filtering becomes ubiquitous and normalised, are citizens en masse becoming too accepting or, worse, largely ignorant, of the power these filters hold?

Hong Yoon, J.; Kim, Du Yong; Yoon, K. (2012)In this paper, we propose a novel implementation of the probability hypothesis density (PHD) filter based on the sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) method called SMC-PHD filter. The SMC-PHD filter is analogous to the sequential ...
Filtering methods to extract the tide height from Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) signals for Hydrographic applicationsAlsaaq, Faisal; Kuhn, Michael; El-Mowafy, Ahmed; Kennedy, Paul (2016)Hydrographic surveys have traditionally relied on the availability of tide information for the reduction of sounding observations to a common (chart) datum usually related to a specific tide level. In most cases, tide ...
