A new study by MIT researchers finds that the growing practice of compiling massive, anonymized datasets about people's movement patterns is a double-edged sword: While it can provide deep insights into human behavior for research, it could also put people's private data at risk.
Researchers have created new artificial intelligence that could spell the end for one of the most widely used website security systems. The new algorithm, based on deep learning methods, is the most effective solver of captcha security and authentication systems to date and is able to defeat versions of text captcha schemes used to defend the majority of the world's most popular websites
Can you deceive a deceiver? That's the question that computer scientists at Binghamton University, State University of New York have recently been exploring. Assistant Professor of Computer Science Guanhua Yan and PhD student Zhan Shu are looking at how to make cyber deception a more effective tool against malicious hackers.
Researchers and cybersecurity experts have begun to examine ways to mitigate the risk of cyberattacks in medical imaging before they become a real danger.
Army scientists have found a novel way to safeguard quantum information during transmission. This finding has the potential to lead to more secure and reliable communication for warfighters on the battlefield.
New research co-authored by assistant research professor and associate director of Informatics at the University of Southern California Department of Computer Science, Emilio Ferrara, looks at 'social hacking' over social networks that can increase violent commentary and can affect voting behavior.
Fingerprint authentication systems are a widely trusted, ubiquitous form of biometric authentication, deployed on billions of smartphones and other devices worldwide. Yet a new study reveals a surprising level of vulnerability in these systems. Using a neural network trained to synthesize human fingerprints, the research team evolved a fake fingerprint that could potentially fool a touch-based authentication system for up to one in five people.
Indiana University computer scientists conducted an analysis of information shared on Twitter during the 2016 U.S. presidential election and found that automated accounts play a disproportionate role in spreading misinformation online.
Research from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), the University of Warwick and ETH Zurich has studied the effectiveness of micro-targeted political advertising on social media such as Facebook in the United States. The research concludes that it may have increased the number of Donald Trump voters by ten per cent in the 2016 presidential elections.
New survey: Health system leaders plan to increase spending to defend against cyberattacks, express optimism about reimbursement for telehealth services, and feel anxiety about Apple, Amazon and Google entering the health care space.
