‘Beam Me Up:’ Nation’s First Quantum Drone Provides Unrivaled Security
Florida Atlantic University

Researchers are developing the nation’s first drone-based, mobile quantum network for unhackable wireless communication. The network includes drones, a ground station, lasers and fiber optics. In war, these drones would provide one-time crypto-keys to exchange critical information, which spies and enemies would not be able to intercept. Quantum protects information using the laws of nature and not just by a clever manmade code.

True or false: studying work practices of professional fact-checkers
NYU Tandon School of Engineering

Online misinformation has developed into a critical societal threat that can lead to disastrous societal consequences. Researchers at NYU Tandon and NYU Abu Dhabi interviewed professional fact-checkers from 19 countries to gather information about the fact-checking profession, fact-checking processes and methods, the use of computation tools for fact-checking, and challenges and barriers to fact-checking.  The study, "True or False: Studying the Work Practices of Professional Fact-Checkers," found that most of the fact-checkers felt they have a social responsibility of correcting harmful information to provide “a service to the public,” emphasizing that they want the outcome of their work to both educate and inform the public. Some fact-checkers mentioned that they hope to contribute to an information ecosystem providing a “balanced battlefield” for the discussion of an issue, particularly during elections.
