DNA sequencing tools lack robust protections against cybersecurity risks
A new study analyzing the security hygiene of common, open-source DNA processing programs finds evidence of poor computer security practices used throughout the field. In a scientific first, the team also demonstrated it is possible to compromise a computer system with a malicious computer code stored in synthetic DNA.
International competition benchmarks metagenomics software
Communities of bacteria live everywhere: inside our bodies, on our bodies and all around us. The human gut alone contains hundreds of species of bacteria that help digest food and provide nutrients, but can also make us sick. Scientists use metagenomics -- the study of DNA from an environmental sample -- to study these bacterial communities.
DISTRO: Researchers create digital objects from incomplete 3D data
Depth sensors, such as those of the Microsoft Kinect, are very powerful, but unfortunately they do not work equally well on all materials, which leads to noisy data or even missing measurements.
Google Glass app helps autistic children with social interactions
A new study demonstrates the potential of wearable technology as a social-skills aid for children with autism spectrum disorder.
How old does your computer think you are?
Computerized face recognition is an important part of initiatives to develop security systems, in building social networks, in curating photographs, and many other applications. Systems can allow a computer to estimate with precision a person's age based on an analysis of their face.
Wearables to boost security of voice-based log-in
A security-token necklace, ear buds or eyeglasses developed by researchers could eliminate vulnerabilities in voice authentication -- the practice of logging in to a device or service with your voice alone.
Simulating a brain-cooling treatment that could one day ease epilepsy
Using computer simulation techniques, scientists have gained new insights into the mechanism by which lowering the temperature of specific brain regions could potentially treat epileptic seizures.
New technology uses mouth gestures to interact in virtual reality
Researchers have developed a new technology that allows users to interact in a virtual reality environment using only mouth gestures.
Virtual humans work better than current ways to identify post-traumatic stress in soldiers
Researchers find that soldiers are more likely to open up about post-traumatic stress when interviewed by a virtual interviewer, reports a new study. Virtual interviewers can combine the rapport-building skills of human interviewers with feelings safety provided by anonymous surveys to help soldiers to reveal more about their mental health symptoms.
Preservation for the (digital) ages
Researchers working with classicists and computer scientists have developed a method to preserve digital humanities databases. The preservation strategy allows scholars to re-launch a database application in a variety of environments -- from individual computers, to virtual machines, to future web servers -- without compromising its interactive features.
