Real-Time Captcha Technique Improves Biometric Authentication

A new login authentication approach could improve the security of current biometric techniques that rely on video or images of users’ faces. Known as Real-Time Captcha, the technique uses a unique challenge that’s easy for humans — but difficult for attackers who may be using machine learning and image generation software to spoof legitimate users.

Lab-on-a-chip for tracking single bacterial cells

Researchers at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel, together with researchers from the Max Planck Institute in Dresden, have set up a novel lab-on-a-chip with accompanying automatic analysis software. As they report in Nature Communications, this integrated setup can be used to study gene regulation in single bacterial cells in response to dynamically controlled environmental changes.

East Meets West: Using technology to help epilepsy patients

Epilepsy, a seizure disorder, affects more than 2 million people in the United States, making it the fourth most common neurological condition in the nation, according to the Epilepsy Foundation.

Still, the general public doesn’t know much about the chronic condition. College of Medicine faculty member Dilip Pandey said lack of information isn’t to blame. “There are volumes of information,” said Pandey, associate professor of neurology and rehabilitation.

App-based citizen science experiment could help researchers predict future pandemics

A new app gives UK residents the chance to get involved in an ambitious, ground-breaking science experiment that could save lives. Scientists from the University of Cambridge and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine are attempting to collect a gold standard data set that can be used to predict how the next pandemic flu would spread through this country – and what can be done to stop it. They need your help.

Illinois researchers develop spectroscopic “science camera” system for smartphone-enabled mobile health

The latest versions of most smartphones contain at least two and sometimes three built-in cameras. Researchers at the University of Illinois would like to sell mobile device manufactures on the idea of adding yet another image sensor as a built-in capability for health diagnostic, environmental monitoring, and general-purpose color sensing applications.
