  • Smart TVs Sending Sensitive User Data to Netflix,...
    on January 1, 1970 at 12:00 am

    Financial TimesA study by researchers at Northeastern University and the U.K.'s Imperial College London found that certain smart TVs and streaming dongles transmit information like location and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to Netflix, Facebook, and third-party services, in some cases even when the devices are turned off. The researchers cited Amazon, Google, Akamai, and Microsoft as the most frequently contacted third parties, since they deliver cloud and networking services for smart […]

    Binghamton University NewsMachine learning algorithms developed by a team of Binghamton University researchers can differentiate bullies and aggressors on Twitter from normal users with 90% accuracy. The researchers analyzed behavioral patterns of abusive Twitter users and how they differ from the activities of other Twitter users. Binghamton's Jeremy Blackburn said the researchers then used crawlers, “programs that accumulate data from Twitter via a variety of mechanisms,” to […]

    The Engineer (UK)Researchers at WMG (the Warwick Manufacturing Group) of the University of Warwick in the U.K. have tried out four technological innovations with the potential to enhance the cybersecurity and safety of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs). The innovations included group signatures, a secure type of communications for vehicle platooning; authentication prioritization, a strategy that prioritizes the messages a vehicle receives according to verified sender information; edge […]

  • How Vocational Education Got a 21st Century Reboot
    on January 1, 1970 at 12:00 am

    PoliticoTen U.S. states and 17 countries have adopted the Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) vocational education model, which public school districts envision as a way of closing the skills gap. P-TECH concentrates on science, technology, engineering, and math, to prepare learners—mostly disadvantaged, low-income youth—for employment in technology fields requiring more than a high school diploma, but not necessarily a four-year college degree. P-TECH schools […]
