Help! I'm accidentally stealing people's identities and I don't know how to stop
I’ve been sent a contract for a house in Virginia I haven’t bought and been mistaken for a Paraguayan engineer. Is it too much to ask for my email back? For the past five years, I’ve been engaged in a very strange relationship, with an unknown number of people all around the world, which opens up (...)

Engineers hand 'cognitive' control to underwater robots
For the last decade, scientists have deployed increasingly capable underwater robots to map and monitor pockets of the ocean to track the health of fisheries, and survey marine habitats and species. In general, such robots are effective at carrying out low-level tasks, specifically assigned to (...)

Airflow model to reduce time on the tarmac
A mechanical engineering professor describes in a new article a new mathematical tool he developed to calculate the flow of turbulent air produced by a plane's wing tips when an airplane takes off. He says that "time spent twiddling your thumbs on the tarmac" could be significantly reduced, as (...)
