consent rights to force Toshiba to grant Western Digital rights and advantages it does not have” Louise C Stoupe a partner at Morrison & Foerster wrote “This campaign constitutes intentional interference with Toshiba’s prospective economic advantage and current contracts It is improper and it must stop” For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related NewsIt’s opinion poll time in Kerala The state’s largest TV news network Asianet News came out with its second survey last week followed by Marunadan Malayali a popular news website And both have predicted unequivocal victory for the CPM-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) Early this year the CPM party channel Kairali also had come out with a survey predicting a massive victory for the LDF Given the unusual appetite for news among Malayalis and the profusion of TV channels newspapers and websites there could be more such surveys in the pipeline Ultimately all the polls might prove to be right in their "findings" for two reasons —one Kerala’s electoral history of alternating governments and two the deluge of corruption charges against incumbent Oommen Chandy and his men (and one woman) that may make them unpopular But what will remain unseen will be the "methodology" behind these polls because nobody knows how they arrived at the figures that they present with fancy graphical embellishments Let me leave aside the survey by Kairali because it’s a party propaganda vehicle and hence its results are most likely to be motivated More over doing a survey in February for an election in May makes no sense However what’s astonishing are the studies by Asianet News and Marunadan Malayali Representational image AFP Asianet News does have a partner in C Fore a research organisation which apparently had predicted the 2011 elections for the channel with a lot of "accuracy" From available information Marunadan Malayali seems to have done the study by itself Whether one partners with a specialist or not what’s important is how one undertakes a study to find out what’s in the minds of voters Is there some science or is it simple second guessing I have strong doubts about the science until the pollsters show their hand which they haven’t Asianet News ran extensive discussions and analyses on their poll but not once did they say how exactly did they arrive at these numbers particularly the sampling method and conversion of vote-shares into votes and seats In any quantitative analysis sampling is the key If you choose the wrong sample you get wrong answers In an election-based survey which tries to record what’s in the mind of all the voters one has to choose the sample in such a way that it at least approximately reads all of them correctly In statistical terms this is the same as "equal probability sampling"—a sample in which all voters have equal probability of getting represented In a state of diverse demographics it’s not easy If there are sampling frames to randomly choose frame so that all the sample voters selected together represent the general electorate it’s possible; but where are the sampling frames in our communities The voters’ lists or municipal and panchayat record of residents or anything else No because the demographics and political affiliations are so diverse This is where one has to be extremely careful about sampling Expert psephologists appeared to have cracked this over the years and have arrived at some dependable forms of sampling so that political affiliations caste religion etc among the people are factored in It’s not simple random sampling and more importantly what works in Kerala might not work in Punjab At a higher level the same complexity also applies to the constituencies or the segments of constituencies that pollsters select for their surveys Do they give equal probability to all the other constituencies wards and booths or do they at least represent the overall demographics Not easy One has to statistically analyse past trends voting patterns influence of castes and religions socio-economic profiles political affiliations and their (constituencies/segments) overall representative value Equally important is the model they use for conversion of vote-shares into seats For instance how does a party that’s predicted to get 18 per cent votes (BJP) in a state get 3-5 seats whereas in reality a party with a single digit and marginal vote-share (Kerala Congress) has been winning in more seats All that truthful psephologists can do is to aim for an optimum technique and tell people its limitations before trumpeting its results Claiming past accuracy is a dishonest short-cut We have seen how NDTV miserably failed last time although it had claimed many feathers in its cap over the years In other words the pollsters have to tell people how they chose the sample voters and how they converted vote-shares into seats It’s an ethical pre-requisite in any study that claims to be scientific Does one accept the data or findings of NSSO without knowing its methodology and limitations Does any researcher worth his/her salt get to publish without an upfront statement of its methodology and limitations In scientific sample surveys the processes of design testing and modification of survey instruments are critical and transparent But Asianet News didn’t tell its viewers its methodology and limitations All that it would say was how many people it covered the percentage of possibility of errors and how accurate it had been in the past Unless one makes a complete disclosure it’s not science but quackery Numbers may turn out to be correct but that’s possible in any game of probability It’s easier than throwing the dice and getting it right In the case of Marunadan Malayali the "methodology" is hilarious According to its website it chose "random survey" over other methods (whatever it means) How Just by going out to random places (eg shopping malls because Malayalis like air-conditioned places) and asking questions to people they randomly chose Any systematic technique of statistical value From what they have described nothing More laughable is the claim that their survey is more reliable because they covered 25000 people which according to them is the biggest sample so far What this statement betrays is a lack of basic understanding of how data and statistics work Sample size means nothing without science It’s such a sad irony that in a state with near-total literacy these surveys are lapped up without any debate on the methodologies and their limitations Traditionally journalists predicting results based on visible public mood and some vox populi has been part of acceptable election reportage Now the same seem to have been decked up as surveys by some media outfits Sample surveys require rigorous science and a robust mathematical model And it also requires a lot of money The short-cuts are easy —all they require are some numbers graphics and a lot of hot air Password management is a painful chore but as with all chores a necessary one In the digital age data is everything and it must be protected For now locking up this data behind a password is the only solution Representative Image With over a billion users using the internet and hundreds of millions of stolen usernames and passwords making the rounds of the internet finding a secure password is important To assist in this task Troy Hunt a security expert blogger and speaker who also works as Microsoft Regional Director set up a site called ‘Have I been pwned’ The site is simplicity itself Hunt collated the millions of stolen credentials circulating in the dark annals of the internet and created a password database All you need to do is head to Have I been pwned and enter your existing passwords as well as passwords you intend to use The site will then confirm whether the password has been leaked or not Basically you check your passwords on the site if it’s given the green light use it if not change it It’s really that simple Why does this matter Even with the massive amounts of computing power available today a well-secured account isn’t that easy to access A technique called brute-forcing which basically tries to hack an account by trying every concieveable combination of letters numbers and special characters as a password is one of the simplest and reliable methods to hack an account However a complicated password will mean that an account can take years to brute-force To speed up this process hackers use a password database as the first step This database is usually a list of all the stolen passwords ever released online A brute-forcing attack will still need to try hundreds of millions of passwords (usually sorted by popularity) but the process is still much faster with the database than without People also tend to use the same password for multiple accounts This is an oversimplified explanation of why such a database can be useful but you must have understood the point by now A unique password will help enhance your account’s security Of course taking other precautions most notably the use of two-step authentication will be keep your accounts far more secure but the hosts hit back to level through substitute Raheem Sterling’s volley eight minutes from time. the bowling is not a concern.” Aishwarya
