Maritime knowledge discovery and anomaly detection – “Thousands of vessels cross EU waters and hundreds enter into EU ports every day, generating an overwhelming amount of tracking data and reports that make it possible to disguise illegal operations. Detecting steadily changing deceptive behaviours at sea is becoming like trying to find a needle in a haystack and calls for advanced automatic and adaptive tools to discover useful information from the data. Data mining, information fusion and visual analytics are becoming central to the discovery of knowledge from the increasingly available information on vessels and their movements (e.g. Automatic Identification System – AIS, Long Range Identification and Tracking – LRIT, radar tracks, Earth Observation) at global scale. This enables the automatic detection of structured anomalies, the prediction of vessel routes up to a few days in advance, the behavioural characterisation of vessels, the understanding and mapping of activities at sea and the analysis of their trends over time.”
Public opinion in the European Union – “Standard Eurobarometer 91 survey (EB91), was carried out in 34 countries or territories: the 28 European Union (EU) Member States, five candidate countries (the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Turkey, Montenegro, Serbia and Albania) and the Turkish Cypriot Community in the part of the country that is not controlled by the government of the Republic of Cyprus. The fieldwork took place between the 7th of June and the 25th of June 2019 in the EU28 Member States and between the 7th of June and the 1st of July 2019 in the other countries and territories. The survey includes topics such as the European political situation and the economy (perception of the current situation and expectations for the future). It analyses how Europeans perceive their political institutions, both national governments and parliaments, the EU and its institutions as well as their main concerns. It also examines people’s attitudes on European citizenship and on issues linked to the priorities of the European Commission, notably free movement and the euro.“
