Early detection of infectious diseases is the most cost-effective strategy in disease
surveillance for reducing the risk of outbreaks. Latest deep learning and computer
vision improvements are powerful tools that open up a new field of research in
epidemiology and disease control. In this work, these techniques were employed to
develop an algorithm aimed to track and compute individual animal motion in real time.
This algorithm was used in experimental trials in order to assess African swine fever
(ASF) infection course in Eurasian wild boar. Overall, the outcomes showed a strong
correlation between motion reduction and fever caused by ASF infection. In addition,
infected animals computed significant low movements compared to uninfected animals.
The obtained results suggest that a motion monitoring system based on artificial
intelligence may be used to trigger suspicions of fever. It would help farmers and animal
health services to early detect clinical signs compatible with infectious diseases. This
technology shows a promising start up for implementing non-intrusive, economic and
real time solutions in the livestock industry with especial interest in ASF, considering
the current concern in the world pig industry.

In this video we present our working paper 'Vehemence and Victims: Using generic lexicons to investigate emotions in historical Dutch parliamentary debates on war victim legislation (1945-1990)'. In this presentation we briefly introduce the topic of investigation, relevant historiography, questions asked, methods used, and some preliminary findings.
The Chair of LIBER's FIM4L Working Group, Jos Westerbeke, was recently invited to present the group's work on work on federated authentication with Single Sign-On (SSO) to the UN-Links Working Group.
UN libraries were interested in the work of LIBER's FIM4L group because, together, they are actively searching for the best technology to provide users with easy, seamless and secure remote access to electronic library resources.

What is Citizen Science? What is not? Learn more about the characteristics of citizen science and why it is important to define them.
On May 27th, 2020, ECSA and EU-Citizen.Science co-hosted a webinar about the recently published ‘Characteristics of citizen science’. This document, and the accompany notes, is the output of a community-based effort to outline what can be characterised as citizen science.
Led by members of the working group that wrote this document, the webinar is an opportunity to learn more about its content, why defining characteristics of citizen science was necessary, and how it will benefit the field.

We used the hashtag #CitSciWebinar to tweet about the webinar, and you can continue to use this after the event to share it and ask us questions.

This webinar provided an overview of the recently launched DataCite's GraphQL API, which drives the PID Graph, the graph of scholarly resources described by persistent identifiers and the connections between them.
Next, the webinar will provide an opportunity for attendees to contribute to the shape of a new service in development, the Common DOI Search, which will apply the new API to allow users to search for any type of DOI, regardless of where it was registered.
