As part of ACCESS mission to interface with society many of these lectures extend to broader popular areas of interest, such as the sub-prime crisis, the roles that popularity and novelty play in eliciting attention in the Web or systems for intelligent buildings and environmental monitoring.

Empowering people on social networks

Social networks have changed the world. Now they need to be changed. An ACCESS researcher is part of an international project to improve privacy on the web.

“Everybody has a Facebook or Google + account today, and is very happy about it,” he says. “We think everything is free on social networks, but in a sense, we pay by giving away our private data to be monetised by social network providers,”says Sarunas Girdzijauskas.
