    Tech Republic - 12/05/2016

    With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), we are living in an increasingly networked and automated world, said Engin Kirda, professor of computer science at Northeastern University.

    “It is important to get students interested and excited about computer science because this is a field that will most certainly directly impact their lives in the future,” Kirda said. “They will be using automatized, computer systems for a wide range of activities. Understanding how these systems work conceptually would enable them to use these systems more effectively, and also protect themselves against attacks and other computer-related problems.”
