Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

There are some systems and networks that make up the infrastructure of society. Some of these infrastructures are of utmost importance and are related to each other. If one of these is critically damaged, then they can cause huge disturbances and losses for a nation. These are known as critical infrastructures. Particularly, the security and privacy of critical infrastructures (a nation’s strategic national assets, i.e., banking and finance, communications, emergency services, energy, food chain, health, water, mass gatherings, transport, etc.), which is an essential part of our daily life, in accessing different systems, services, and applications are serious issues. However, it is challenging to achieve, as technology is changing at rapid speed and our systems are ever more complex. The explosion of multimedia data has created unprecedented opportunities and fundamental security challenges as they are not just large in volume, but also unstructured and multi-modal. Deep learning can be used to provide a robust defense mechanism for critical infrastructures. There is always the possibility of cyber-attacks against these infrastructures, which can be predicted and detected with the help of deep learning. Deep learning can be used to identify the direct and indirect connections between these infrastructures so that in case of attack, appropriate security measures can be enforced. Deep learning can also be used to identify the weaknesses present in the current security mechanisms so that the vulnerabilities can be patched before they can be exploited. Deep learning can also be used for device layers of security mechanisms that can efficiently withstand such attacks. These defense mechanisms could be of autonomous nature and thus will require almost no human intervention.

This Special Issue mainly focuses on deep learning for the safety and security of multimedia data in critical infrastructure, addressing both original algorithmic development and new applications. We are soliciting original contributions, of leading researchers and practitioners from academia as well as industry, which address a wide range of theoretical and application issues in this domain. Please note that all the submitted papers must be within the general scope of the Symmetry journal.

The topics relevant to this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:

  • Security and privacy of multimedia data in telecommunication systems
  • Security and privacy of multimedia data in communication systems
  • Security and privacy of multimedia data in eCommerce
  • Security and privacy of multimedia data in emergency services, energy, food chain

Diagnosis is a measurement, and so is intelligence. We present a novel visual method to analyze diagnoses. The concept of country health was introduced in a trial to compare the efficiency of two treatments: box plot and pull anti. We found that the pull anti performs better in both accuracy and extent. The box plot is a diagnosis of abnormality using simple up–down symmetry; however, when abnormalities occur in the probability, the symmetry of the structure may be negatively affected. The pull anti checks the asymmetry of the left and right and therefore results in a better analysis. Furthermore, we designed another trial to test the sampling bias and found that an insensible disturbance might lead to statistical self-significance. We thus suggest that extended observations towards certainty are necessary to obtain better diagnoses or intelligence. Full article
