Not enough voters detecting ballot errors and potential hacks, study finds
Researchers carried out the first study on voter behavior with electronic assistive devices, found 93% missed incorrect ballots.
CRA recognizes three outstanding undergraduate researchers
The three students were given Honorable Mentions for their interdisciplinary projects.
Three faculty earn MIDAS grants to broaden the frontiers of data science
This round of funding strongly encourages pioneering work with the potential for major expansion.
Protecting drones from hacking
Prof. Wes Weimer and his group have designed several defenses that allow drones to detect and repair threats in mid-flight, preventing missions from being interrupted.
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.
