Fisher discusses cybersecurity on Science Friday

Professor and Chair Kathleen Fisher recently appeared on the radio show Science Friday to discuss cybersecurity and artificially intelligent systems.

"Our cars and other Internet of Things devices are actually pretty hackable at the moment," Fisher cautioned. "Once a hacker has broken in[to a car], they can change the software that controls how the car brakes or accelerates or steers. Basically, cars are networked computers on wheels and are quite vulnerable to remote attack."
