Jurisdiction in Cyberspace
At its core, jurisdiction is about the boundaries of a sovereign's exercise of its power. What are reasonable constraints on its reach, such that faraway or otherwise unconnected people and institutions can be called to account by the sovereign? Closely related are concepts of choice of law - exactly which sovereign's law to apply to a situation that spans multiple jurisdictions - and venue, which determines the physical location in which the parties are best served to settle their dispute.

Combien d’objets dans une image ?

Dans cet exposé Jean-Jacques Lévy propose de décortiquer quelques algorithmes d'étiquetage des objets dans une image, c'est à dire de segmentation de cette image en régions homogènes, et de regarder en détail la complexité algorithmique d'un tel mécanisme. Cela permet de montrer dans un cas concret, quels formalismes permettent d'analyser les performances d'un algorithme et de vérifier sa validité. On y croise la fonction d’Ackermann dont le rôle est essentiel en informatique

Probabilistic approach for sensor fault detection and identification (A)
Operation performance of chemical, petrochemical and biochemical processes can be enhanced considerably by an integrated advisory system that is capable of performing simultaneous tasks of (1) instrument fault detection and identification and (2) process fault detection and diagnosis. Lack of such advisory system, at present, is due to the fact that one of the assumptions of normal process operation and functional sensors is always required in existing methods that perform tasks 1 and 2.
