Preparing for the Challenge of Rogue Quantum Computing

Four new cryptographic algorithms stand between us .... and them. These four algorithms were recently selected by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for use throughout the United States. They will be standardized in a process that takes up to two years, and then migrated into existing systems for protecting both government and private industry data. The review and evaluation of the algorithms took NIST 6 years to complete.

The (good) Monsters Inside You

Nanorobot latching on to cancer cell
Small robots capable of moving around inside the human body have been developed for some time, and are already in use in multiple capacities.

Is Tech Employment Drying Up?

Tech is a challenging, demanding career. But, it has its compensations. Tech careers are intellectually rewarding, with constant opportunities to learn new skills. Tech jobs can also be deeply satisfying, offering employees a chance to solve real-world problems and make an impact. And, let’s get real–tech employment is known to be one of the most reliable, predictable sources of well-paid and long-term career opportunities. Serious students mapping their futures often begin and end at the STEM professions–why look any further, when the science and technology fields offer so many lucrative possibilities? Perhaps this is why recent news of tech layoffs and hiring slowdowns have thrown such a chill on the industry. Undergrads and grads alike are wondering: did I choose wrong? Is it too late to correct course? What do I do now?

Major Problems for Microchips

Many talents, one code. Make it happen.
