Paper published in Harvard Journal of Law & Technology shows how technology blurs line between metadata and private content, eroding protections codified in pre-internet communications.
In a Nature Genetics article, researchers describe genotyping family members (rather than a patient), making it easier to collect DNA samples to carry out large-scale disease studies previously considered impossible.
Fabricated in Columbia’s Computer Vision Lab, the camera—a sheet of adaptive lenses—bends to change the field of view. Thin and deformable, it can wrap around objects and still produce high-quality images.
