New attack on autonomous vehicle sensors creates fake obstacles
Up to this point, no attacks had been discovered targeting a car’s LiDAR system—but a major new finding from researchers at the University of Michigan has demonstrated what that might…
“Mind reading” study looks inside coders’ brains
Using real-time fMRI readings, researchers linked spatial reasoning with CS problem solving.
Automated tool optimizes complex programs better than humans
Erie provided database repairs that were previously performed exclusively by human programmers.
Exposing internet censorship around the globe
A team led by Prof. Roya Ensafi has turned public internet servers into automated sentries that can monitor and report when access to websites is being blocked.
Uncovering the Foreshadow attack
A team including Prof. Dan Genkin discovered a processor vulnerability that had the potential to put every Intel-based PC manufactured since 2008 at risk.
