Using A.I. to Make Data Visualizations. In this new paper by et al., published this week in CHI, we develop a machine learning algorithm that makes the design decisions needed to visualize data. You can check the paper, data, & code, at:


O sistema promete usar criptografia homomórfica para que seja verificável pelo eleitor, usando uma ferramenta livre baseada em uma especificação aberta, se o seu voto foi computado nos resultados, protegendo o sistema conta fraudes de quaisquer partes.

A Microsoft, a Columbia University e a Galois anunciaram esta semana uma parceria para construir um sistema de código aberto para segurança e auditabilidade em eleições chamado ElectionGuard.
