You are about to become obsolete. You think you are special, unique, and that whatever it is that you are doing is impossible to replace. You are wrong. As we speak, millions of algorithms created by computer scientists are frantically running on servers all over the world, with one sole purpose: do whatever humans can do, but better.
As more and more parts of our lives are stored and managed through online accounts, it is critical to understand how to keep those accounts secure. Ian R Buck sits down with Elena Machkasova, computer science professor, to talk about what attackers are after, how they try to gain access, and what we can do to protect ourselves.
Our first book review ever!! Ian is joined by Mary Austad to review Hank Green's debut novel An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, which is an exploration of fame and the social internet wrapped in a sci-fi mystery.
