One pervasive trend is to quantify more and more aspects of the world and our lives through data. Datafication is radically influencing the way people, companies, societies, and governments exist and operate. This creates new opportunities as well as new hazards. The INSY department aims to enable man and machine to deal with the increasing volume and complexity of data, in close cooperation with their environment.

Together with the software technology department, INSY is responsible for the Computer Science bachelor programme and the two master tracks, Software Technology (ST) and Data Science & Technology (DST). The department also contributes to the Computer Science specializations Cybersecurity, Bioinformatics, and EIT Innovation of the master in Digital Media Technology.

The department integrates fundamental research, engineering and design in the interlocking fields of data processing, interpretation, visualization and interaction using model- and knowledge-based methods and algorithms. The research is inspired by challenges from the domains of consumer electronics and entertainment, cultural heritage, social media, medical and health sciences, security and privacy, and safety and incident management. The department underpins the EEMCS thematic research lines Data Science, Safety & Security, and Health & Wellbeing.

Number of bitcoins captured from exchange hacks are decreasing

The numbers of bitcoins captured from exchange hacks are decreasing over the years. Cryptocurrencies are also less likely to go bankrupt than they used to be. These are conclusions from a study by Kris Oosthoek, researcher of cybersecurity at TU Delft, discussed in the BNR CryptoCast of April 2,2020.

Graph-Time Spectral Analysis for Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a clinical arrhythmia with multifactorial mechanisms still unresolved. Time- frequency analysis of epicardial electrograms has been investigated to study atrial fibrillation. How- ever, deeper understanding of atrial fibrillation can be achieved if the spatial dimension can be in- corporated. Unfortunately, the physical models describing the spatial relations of atrial fibrillation signals are complex and non-linear; hence, the conventional signal processing techniques to study electrograms in the joint space, time, and frequency domain are less suitable. In this study, we wish to put forward a radically different approach to analyze atrial fibrillation with a higher-level model.
