Raising further questions about privacy on the internet, researchers from Princeton and Stanford universities have released a study showing that a specific person's online behavior can be identified by linking anonymous web browsing histories with social media profiles.
A delegation of Princeton faculty members — including Dean of Engineering Emily A. Carter and Lynn Loo, director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment — took part in and led discussions on major global issues at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum that concluded Friday, Jan. 20, in Davos, Switzerland.
Researchers developed a technique in which nanoscale perovskite particles self-assemble to produce more efficient, stable and durable perovskite-based LEDs.
Naomi Ehrich Leonard, the Edwin S. Wilsey Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, has been awarded the IEEE's 2017 Hendrik W. Bode Lecture Prize.
Nick Feamster, a professor of computer science, has been named a fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery.
H. Vincent Poor, the Michael Henry Strater University Professor of Electrical Engineering, has been awarded the IEEE's Alexander Graham Bell Medal, the institute announced.
Energy and environmental experts at a recent Princeton University gathering grappled with fundamental questions about how to build a stronger infrastructure and proposed solutions for providing and using energy and water more efficiently.
An organization of academics and industry leaders released a report today that provides guidance on how to build security and privacy protections into the emerging internet of things (IoT). The report emphasizes several recommendations for internet-connected devices, ranging from improved procedures for updating software on those devices to ensuring that those devices can continue to function if internet access is disrupted.
Wood was honored for "the development of continental and global scale representations of land-surface hydrology, and the pioneering use of remote sensing in hydrologic modeling and prediction," the association announced.
Scientists from Princeton, Stanford and Ohio State universities, as well as the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, have identified the specific attributes of abandoned wells that leak significant amounts of methane, which could help state governments prioritize which wells to repair.
A team of scientists and engineers led by Princeton researchers recently reported the successful operation of a new instrument for the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii that will allow astronomers to make direct observations of planets orbiting nearby stars.
Researchers including scientists from Princeton University have developed a system that greatly simplifies the task of managing the software switches used to control traffic across a network. Called Protocol-Independent Switch or PISCES, the new system allows managers to adjust and customize their software switches quickly without sacrificing speed or efficiency.
Recent upgrades in imaging and fabrication facilities for atomic-scale research have made these labs among the best in the world and perhaps unique in their "one-stop-shop" combination of analysis and fabrication.
In a paper presented at the 2016 ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security on Oct. 27, researchers describe a system called PREDATOR that distinguishes between legitimate and malicious purchasers of new websites. The system yields important insights into how those two groups behave differently online even before the malicious users have done anything obviously bad or harmful. These early signs can help security professionals take preemptive measures.
Over 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students and post-doctorate researchers visited the Oct. 14 fair, co-sponsored by the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Office of Career Services. Company representatives with flyers and souvenirs stood ready to answer questions ranging from how their interview process works to what they enjoy most about their job.
