Applications Of Artificial Intelligence Techniques To Combating Cyber Crimes: A Review

With the advances in information technology (IT) criminals are using cyberspace to commit numerous cyber crimes. Cyber infrastructures are highly vulnerable to intrusions and other threats. Physical devices and human intervention are not sufficient for monitoring and protection of these infrastructures; hence, there is a need for more sophisticated cyber defense systems that need to be flexible, adaptable and robust, and able to detect a wide variety of threats and make intelligent real-time decisions. Numerous bio-inspired computing methods of Artificial Intelligence have been increasingly playing an important role in cyber crime detection and prevention. The purpose of this study is to present advances made so far in the field of applying AI techniques for combating cyber crimes, to demonstrate how these techniques can be an effective tool for detection and prevention of cyber attacks, as well as to give the scope for future work.

Developing course package for mobile devices, developing and assessment of the software

In this study, the subject of mobile learning and content packaging is handled and mobile content course package editor and a player that shows this content were developed for mobile devices.  Mobile content course package software was used by 114 students who study in secondary schools at ninth grade. After then the forms of satisfaction questionnaire and attitude scale are applied to them. The mobile content lesson package editor was used by 15 teachers who work in secondary schools. It is wanted to buildup course packages according to sceneries given to them. The demographic data’s of teachers were taken. Beside this, interviews are done with them about the usage of software and interview forms are filled out. According to analyses, teachers appreciate the software usage as easy and practical and it is seen that they made the procedures easily and they found the software user friendly, useful and more suitable for oral lessons. The students expressed that mobile course package software is functional and they liked the design. According to analysis of attitude scale that applied to students, the students think that in secondary education they must pass to mobile learning and it will be in urgent and inevitable in the next years. As a result; it is seen that the developed software can be used by students and teachers easily for contributing mobile learning and can be redesigned for tablets for expanding usage field.

Importance of Operating Systems Type in Computer Forensics

This article works on determining the effect of operating systems on Computer forensic especially in nowadays that the need for Computer forensic is increasing due to the increase in cybercrimes. Suited to the purpose of the study and methods of interview, 15 people with minimum of 4 years of experience in informatics have been interviewed, in addition, the reports of court experts from cases which are continuing in Ankara administration of Justice and domestic and foreign sources have been analyzed technically. With the outcome of the analysis, it has been observed that the studies and investigations are prepared according to an operating system, software or a certain device because of the commercial concerns or habits, for this reason it appears that it would be helpful to make an academic study in; sessions, workshops, seminars about gathering electronic evidences. Article studies the identification of differences and similarities between the operating systems and its effects on forensic studies with 5 headings and subheadings. According to the study, non-existence of a standard Computer forensic process and the need for different specialties are discovered, for this reason it is assessed that the Computer forensic experts need to specialize in subspecializations especially related to operating systems.
