Intellectual property protection represents a major challenge in academia and for the advancement of science. In his talk, Bela Gipp, Professor of Information Science at the University of Konstanz, will present a new method for the detection of scientific plagiarism. Unlike existing detection methods, this approach does not exclusively rely on text-based methods for similarity detection, thus allowing it to also detect disguised or translated plagiarism. The second part of his talk introduces the use of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin to create and store decentralized, tamperproof timestamps for digital data. The presented method allows proving the authorship of digital data without having to publish the data or the identity of the author.
