Researchers Develop 3-D Printed Objects That Can Track and Store How They Are Used

University of Washington

Engineers at the University of Washington have developed 3-D printed devices that can track and store their own use — without using batteries or electronics. Instead, this system uses a method called backscatter, through which a device can share information by reflecting signals that have been transmitted to it with an antenna.

Study Uncovers ‘Sextortion’ Prevalence in Teens

Florida Atlantic University

Sextortion, the threatened distribution of explicit, intimate and embarrassing sexual images without consent, is the fastest-growing cyberthreat to children.

To Crash or To Swerve? New Study Reveals Which Actions Taken by Self-Driving Cars are Morally Defensible

Society for Risk Analysis (SRA)

A new study, “How should autonomous cars drive? A preference for defaults in moral judgments under risk and uncertainty,” published in Risk Analysis: An International Journal addressed this challenge by asking the public what they believed would be the most morally and ethically sound behavior for an autonomous vehicle (AV) faced with an oncoming collision.
