The problem of finding a target and forming a path to it is known and is well-explored in the field of swarm robotics. Using swarm intelligence, even swarms of simple robots are capable of solving this problem. However, often these works assume that two robots can perceive each other can physically reach each other, or that robots can detect any...

Safeguarding democratic elections is hard. Social media plays a vital role in the discourse around elections and during electoral campaigns. The following article provides an analysis of the 'systemic electoral risks' created by Twitter and Facebook and the mitigation strategies employed by the platforms. It is based on the 2020 proposal by...

In this work, we study the blockchain leader election problem. The purpose of such protocols is to elect a leader who decides on the next block to be appended to the blockchain, for each block proposal round. Solutions to this problem are vital for the security of blockchain systems. We introduce an efficient blockchain leader election method...

Particle swarm optimization has been a popular and common met heuristic algorithm from its genesis time. However, some problems such as premature convergence, weak exploration ability and great number of iterations have been accompanied with the nature of this algorithm. Therefore, in this paper we proposed a novel classification for...

Current leader election algorithms fail in the presence of Sybil attacks, i.e., one malicious entity inserting many nodes, network dynamics, and restricted knowledge about the graph. However, social overlay networks, i.e., peer-to-peer networks with links corresponding to social relationships, face all of the above challenges. Social overlay...

Elections are among the most critical events in a national calendar. During elections, candidates increasingly use social media platforms to engage voters. Using the 2016 US presidential election as a case study, we looked at the use of Twitter by political campaigns and examined how the drivers of voter behaviour were reflected in Twitter....
