New research led by Northeastern professor Guevara Noubir reveals that some Android apps may automatically transmit sensitive information, such as the routes you travel, through the phone’s built-in sensors. A malicious developer, he says, “can infer where you live, where you’ve been, where you are going.”
In DARPA’s first ever Spectrum Challenge, computer science professor Guevara Noubir’s team dominated the competition in its attempt to transmit data from one point to another given the limited frequency spectrum available.
Student-researchers have created a roving robot named WiLU that may be able to locate and rescue victims of natural disasters.
