Royal Society sponsors data hiding expert's visit to Surrey

The University of Surrey Department of Computing's Watermarking and Multimedia Security research group receives a boost to its work this month with a visit from Professor Yun Qing Shi of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, New Jersey Institute of Technology. The visit is being sponsored by the Royal Society, and will help enhance the awareness of digital watermarking research in the UK.

Professor Shi will be visiting the Department from 30 July through to 19 August. During his visit, he will provide three tutorials on 'Fragile and Semi-fragile Reversible Data Hiding', 'Steganography and Steganalysis', and 'Digital Forensics', each key areas in multimedia security that the Watermarking and Multimedia Security group at Surrey are actively engaged in researching.

Professor Shi is a leading researcher in the field of multimedia security, contributing in the region of 200 authored and co-authored papers in top ranking conferences and journals, 18 patents and 1 book. He is also a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

The Watermarking and Multimedia Security group was established early in 2006, combining expertise from coding theory and cryptography, formal methods, and image processing and data hiding. Led by Professor Anthony T S Ho, the group is currently investigating binary, halftone and video watermarking, and error control coding. Professor Ho won the IET Engineering in Innovation Award 2006 for Security, for research and commercialisation of digital watermarking, with DataMark Technologies.

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
