    With machine learning, Google can use peer grouping to scan apps that are being loaded on to the Play Store en masse.

  • “We focus on signals that can negatively affect user privacy, such as permission requests that are not related to core app functionality, and the actual, observed behaviors,” explains Martin Pelikan of Google’s security and privacy team over email.
  • In its most recent annual Android security review, the percentage of users who had installed harmful apps from the official Play Store fell from 0.15 percent in 2015 to 0.05 percent in 2016.
  • Many users — particularly those in China — install Android apps from alternative app stores, which the company doesn’t have control over.

Security on Android has always been a challenge for Google due to the operating system’s open nature. But in recent years, the company has been gaining ground in its fight against malware and…

You are using a smaller version of PubMatch. The actual LSI model I’ve created costs too much right now to host myself. If you’d like the model so you can try it out locally on your computer OR if you’re interested in using a tool like this and would be willing to pay for it please email ryan.g.lambert@gmail.com.

PUBmatch finds conceptually similar articles for a given document using a technique called Latent Semantic Indexing. The longer your document the more narrowed your search will become.

You could use this to find pubmed articles based on correspondence between a doctor and patient or on information you find from news articles on the web.
