These days, everyone on the internet already knows if you're a dog. Thanks to a newly developed tracking technique, they may soon know even more. Pennsylvania-based computer science professor Yinzhi Cao just unveiled a method that IEEE Spectrum reports makes "fingerprinting" across multiple web browsers possible — with a striking degree of accuracy.

There's thunder and lightning flashing outside as I write this, which adds a nice bit of punctuation to the mad science that I'm writing about. I would have never believed it could be so easy, but apparently the onboard computer in the Porsche 911 is capable of running the 1993 classic, DOOM. Show More Summary
(University of Rochester) University of Rochester computer scientists were able to shed light on how Trump won the presidential election by using data science to track the millions of Twitter followers who liked or 'unliked' the candidates throughout the campaign.
It's essential to stay up to date on the newest developments in programming languages and tools, and the $34 Computer Science Programming Languages 2017 Bootcamp is designed to help you do that. With ten complete modules on some of the...Show More Summary
In his 1974 interview with ABC News, science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke painted a picture of how computers would change our way of life by the year 2001. One of his many extraordinarily accurate predictions: “Any businessman, any executive, could live almost anywhere on Earth and still do his business through a device like...
