  • The Influence of Social Support on College Students’ Mobile Phone
           Dependence: The Mediating Role of Security

    • Abstract: In order to further study the current situation and relationship of college students’ mobile phone dependence, social support and sense of security, a questionnaire survey was performed on 409 college students using the college students' mobile phone addiction tendency scale, social support assessment scale and sense of safety scale. The results showed that: (1) 40.24% of college students are moderate of mobile phone dependence, and 5.75% of college students had serious problem of mobile phone dependence; the social support and sense of security of college students were at the upper-middle level; there is no gender difference,no one child difference and no love difference of mobile phone dependence in college students; there is grade difference of mood change; (2) The social support and sense of security of people with high phone dependence are significantly lower than those with low phones Dependence; (3) Social dependence and sense of security have significant negative correlations and negative predictive effects on mobile phone dependence; (4) Security sense has a full mediating role between social support and mobile phone dependence, thus enhancing social support and the sense of security of college students can effectively improve their mobile phone dependence.

  • Modelling Malicious Attack in Social Networks

    • Abstract: Online Social Networks (OSNs) are based on actual trust relationships in environments which help people communicate with friends, family and acquaintances. Malicious individuals take advantage of this trust relationship to propagate malware through social networks. We study the dynamics of malware propagation among OSN users. Social networks users are referred to as nodes which is in two compartments: Healthy (H), or Infected (I). A H node could either be susceptible to infection (S) or removed (R). Simulations were carried out in R using the EpiModel network simulation package. Two networks were simulated thrice with different parameters to give better average values. Two categories of nodes, first category comprises of 3000 nodes with fewer connections and the second category comprising of 7000 nodes are the influential nodes with more connections. The larger network tends to have a higher fraction of nodes getting infected per unit time due to the high level of connectivity, as opposed to the small network where the number of connections is few. However, the infection tends to persist in the network as long as the birth rate is not equal to zero.

  • A Secured System for Internet Enabled Host Devices

    • Abstract: In the world of wireless communication, heterogeneous network topologies such as Wi-Fi and Long-Term Evolution (LTE) the topologies authentication service delivery forms a major challenge with access control; which is sought to be addressed. In this paper, we propose a security model by adapting Capability-based Context Aware Access Control (CCAAC) model for internet-enabled devices for defense against hacking or unauthorized access. The steps applied during the programming of this web application was followed through using the Elliptic-Curve Diffie–Hellman (ECCDH) algorithm so that the initiation of a random prime number between a range, the encryption and exchange of the devices public keys to the decryption are interpreted the right way to the machine making use of it. The results established a security model that has a good chance of being effective against present cyber-attacks other security loopholes.

  • Bernardo Autonomous Emotional Agents Increase Perception of VR Stimuli

    • Authors: Erik Geslin
      Abstract: Video games are high emotional vectors. They play with the emotions of players by eliciting and increasing them. The importance of the induction of basic emotions has been a long forestay and is favoured by video game publishers, as they are quite easily mobilized. Video game publishers look to produce more complex social emotions like empathy, and compassion. In games framework with narrative context, designers frequently use cinema movies methods, like cinematic non-interactive Cutscenes. These methods temporarily exclude the player from interactivity to leave his first viewpoint view and move the camera focusing on the narrative stimuli. Cutscenes were used abundantly and are now rejected, the new development wave is often trying to develop in a “zero cinematic” way. For the same reason, cinematics are also not usable in new Virtual Reality. If VR games and simulations provides a high level of presence, VR environments needs certain rules related in particular to the continuation of free will and the avoidance of possible Break in Presence. We propose in this paper a concept of Emotionally Intelligent Virtual Avatars, which when they perceive an important narrative stimulus, share their emotions through, gestures, facial nonverbal expressions, and declarative sentences to stimulate the player's attention. This will lead players to focus on the narrative stimuli. Our research studies the impact of the use of Bernardo Agents Emotional Avatars involving n = 51 users. The statistical analysis of the results shows a significant difference in the narrative perception of the stimuli and in Presence, correlated to the use of Agents Bernardo. Overall, our emotional Agent Bernardo is a unique concept for increasing the perception of narrative stimuli in virtual environments using HMD, and may be useful in all virtual environments using an emotional narrative process.

  • The Newspaper Industry in a Changing Landscape The Shift in News Content
           of Various Newspapers as a Response to the Rise of Social Media

    • Abstract: This paper examines the association between the rise of social media and the types of news content produced by newspaper outlets. Over the past two decades, the rise of social media has precipitated a decline in the role of traditional newspaper outlets. I present two hypotheses and their ensuing rationale – hypothesis one describes how newspapers may increase hard news content to further consolidate their reader base, while hypothesis two postulates that hard news content will decrease as papers try to regain the readers they lost to social media. Data was collected from two reputable and two less-reputable newspaper outlets to see how they reacted to increases in social media usage and whether their responses varied. For each newspaper outlet, the author identified the number of articles that included keywords drawn from hard news and soft news word banks. Using a ratio of hard to soft news, regression analysis was then performed. After running regression analysis with trend data from the Pew Research Center on the number of US adults with social media accounts, results indicate a moderate negative correlation amongst the two more reputable newspapers and no correlation amongst less reputable newspapers, meaning that the more reputable newspapers tended to decrease hard news content as social media became more popular.
