In a quest to continue being the go-to comic for creating the most nonsensical blogs, this week’s issue of Squirrel Girl uses basic computer science and counting in binary to deliver a splash page so fundamentally rad it should probably grace the cover of a mid-’80s metal album. Suffice to say, it’s rather brilliant. Read more...
An international team of computer science researchers has identified serious security vulnerabilities in the iOS - the operating system used in Apple's iPhone and iPad devices. The vulnerabilities make a variety of attacks possible. read more
Computer science researchers have introduced a new radio technology that allows small mobile devices to take advantage of battery power in larger devices nearby for communication.
As Oracle desperately tries to reanimate its wretched, failed attempt to destroy everything Sun Microsystems stood for and end computer science as we know it, there's never been a better time to rock one of these "You Wouldn't Reimplement an API" tees, which were an underground hit during the earlier trial.

AMHERST, Mass. - In a paper presented today at the Association for Computing Machinery's special interest group on data communication (SIGCOMM) conference in Florianópolis, Brazil, a team of computer science researchers at the University...Show More Summary
The latest development from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) is a breakthrough we can all get excited about. A new wireless technology promises to more than triple Wi-Fi data speeds, and also double its reach. Show More Summary
Sometimes, my society concerns me a bit. I mean, I love Kevin Hart, Will Ferrell, the Internet, smartphones, computers, Apple products, and Tesla as much as the next guy, but let’s be frank: the US is known quite a bit for stupid things Americans say and do. Show More Summary
Two security researchers from the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation showed that practical collision attacks are now possible against 64-bit ciphers and recommended that everyone starts supporting the AES 128-bit cipher.

It’s in the country’s best interests to stay at (or at least near) the forefront of advanced computing techniques, and the National Science Foundation has just put $110 million down to make sure that happens. Read More
GUEST: Since I was a young girl studying computer science and engineering in India, I’ve always been interested in exploring how science and technology can help solve real-world problems. In my IBM Research career that spans 20 years and counting, I’ve indulged my passion for problem-solving by building technologies that help businesses and organizations of all […]
I remember three things about my first computer science class in college. First, improbably, the professor was named Ramm, as in "random access memory." Second, the class was about processors, and I only had a vague idea what a processor was. Show More Summary
Researchers at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab have designed and built a distributed MIMO system that significantly improves WiFi performance in crowded areas where cellphones and other WiFi devices compete for bandwidth.
BrainGate technology is no longer the stuff of science fiction. The science of interfacing human brains and other biological neurons with computers has been developing for well over a decade and now, the progress is amazing. While the human mind is an amazing organ, that surpasses any computer ever made, many fantasize about improving on... Show More Summary
Only 18 percent of computer science graduates are women. Melinda Gates highlights four students who are defying the odds.
I've been learning about software design patterns the last few days, thanks to my Portland friends. Turns out they use this concept to teach computer science these days. And as I understand it, it's a good one. So I wrote a pattern about patterns, to see if I got it. Show More Summary
When I was but a wee nerd and the Internet a tiny collection of DoD 3060s attached to a few university computer science departments via a pair of fine, twisted copper wires, my compadres and I were taught there were four fundamental forces in physics. Show More Summary
On the second floor of Goldman Sachs' headquarters in downtown New York, a group of 40 girls are diligently working on their final technology projects. Many of them have never been introduced to computer science before, but after weeks...Show More Summary
