Aims and scope

In this book, we aim to collect the most recent advances in artificial intelligence techniques which are applied to the protection of privacy and security.

On the one hand, individual privacy protection is a hot topic and must be addressed in order to guarantee the proper evolution of a modern society. On the other, security can invade individual privacy, especially after the appearance of the new forms of terrorism. These two concepts are opposite because, most of the times, security is achieved by means of privacy invasion.

Statistical agencies and the like are collecting large amounts of personal information that has to be protected before its publication. Different forms of evolutionary computation and clustering have been proposed to tackle this problem. Moreover, the protection of critical infrastructures such as airports has invigorated the study of more efficient techniques for pattern recognition, image analysis, etc.

This book will consider all the artificial intelligence techniques that are used to address these problems. It will be focused on real applications and theoretical contributions.
