Edward Felten, a Princeton University computer scientist who is a leading expert on computer security, has been named U.S. Deputy Chief Technology Officer in the White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP).
Big Data continues to transform the way we live and work, altering the relationships between government, citizens, businesses and consumers. But does it come at a cost?
Professor Alain Kornhauser has been working with New Jersey legislators to make the state more welcoming to automated vehicle technology. Proponents want to change regulations to ease its introduction and support companies that are developing the technology.
Computer scientists have developed a method to cut dramatically the time needed to find patterns in large collections of information such as social networks.
Seemingly minor bits of information collected by the National Security Agency, such as the phone numbers that citizens dial, can reveal far more personal information than is commonly believed, Professor Edward Felten told a Senate committee Wednesday.
A team of Princeton Engineering students is developing an easy-to-use database that will put information about buildings and fire conditions at fire chiefs' fingertips.
In a key step toward creating a working quantum computer, Princeton researchers have developed a method that may allow the quick and reliable transfer of quantum information throughout a computing device.
A team of Princeton University researchers has released a plan to provide a simple solution to many of the problems associated with the tangle of patches that has characterized the growth of the Internet.
The American Society of Civil Engineers has awarded its 2012 Alfred M. Freudenthal Medal to Erik Vanmarcke, professor of civil and environmental engineering.
A team of Princeton University engineers has a solution that could radically cut power use for large data centers called server farms, which are major consumers of electricity.
An international team of researchers including scientists at Princeton University have achieved a 100-fold increase in the ability to maintain control the spins of electrons in a solid material, a key step in the development of ultrafast quantum computers.
Princeton engineering students are participating in a research project to produce fiber-optic-based computational devices that work similarly to neurons, but are a billion times faster.
A Princeton researcher and his international collaborators have used lasers to peek into the complex relationship between a single electron and its environment, a breakthrough that could aid the development of quantum computers
Ed Felten, director of the Center for Information Technology Policy, discusses possibilities for interdisciplinary study for undergraduates who would like to combine different areas of interest such as sociology, politics, and computer science.
Through Scholars in the Nation's Service engineering students use their technical know-how to help craft public policy and serve the government.
