Decades of casting aside cybersecurity and then turning it into a separate industry have led us to this. Gordon Corera has a good book about this called "Cyber Spies."
The final round of DARPA’s Cyber Grand Challenge pits computers against one another as human programmers watch the future of cybersecurity unfold

This one's a little in the weeds, I admit. But I was interested in the idea that this camera could help scientists better figure out how the brain works or create fuels that combust more efficiently.
The enhanced ultrafast camera is three billion times faster than the one on an iPhone, the researchers say

Facebook's Yann LeCun and Soumith Chintala discuss their efforts to tune computers to be able to learn for themselves, a key step toward machines that can figure things out without being told (programmed).
The social network is ramping up artificial intelligence to teach machines to figure out what users want—without human help

Video of the robot sumo tournament at Cooper Union that I covered with my colleague Lydia Chain earlier this week. Cool idea and a great approach to learning. Check out the action ...
Engineering students in the mechatronics class at The Cooper Union in Manhattan have a unique final exam—they build sumo robots that fight one another for supremacy.

Meticulous lab testing is important but it can never replicate what actually happens on the track in the heat of competition.
Four years after Oscar Pistorius made history at the London Olympics, the question remains unanswered

Everyone seems to be calling Pokemon Go an "augmented reality" game. Except one pioneer in the field of virtual and augmented reality. Here's why.
The game app’s pocket monsters may be taking over the world—but they’re not quite part of it yet, a tech pioneer insists

Researchers put out preliminary results of a study more closely linking cell phone radiation with cancer. The study has some issues but plenty of merit as well. Curious that they dropped the news on the Friday before a holiday. I guess they didn't want to upset the wireless industry. Anyway, I wrote this sidebar to the main story that explains why it's been so difficult to link cell phones with cancer.
An expert answers questions about what could happen at the cellular level after a report links radiofrequency signals to tumors in rats
