Computer Security and Everyday Objects
Speaker: Yoshi Kohno, Ph.D., Dept. of Computer Science & Engineering, University of Washington

Computers are now integrating into everyday objects, from medical devices to children's toys. This integration of technology brings many benefits. Without the appropriate checks and balances, however, these emerging technologies also have the potential to compromise our digital and physical security and privacy. At the April Eastside Science Café, join UW’s Yoshi Kohno to explore case studies in the design and analysis of computer systems for three types of everyday objects: wireless medical devices, robots and automobiles.

Eastside Science Café is held on the second Monday of each month. Did you miss a café and want to hear the discussion? Most Science Cafés are recorded by KCTS 9 and are available for online viewing. Eastside Science Cafés take place at Wilde Rover in Kirkland and are presented in partnership with Pacific Science Center and KCTS 9.
