Hear This: Undergrad-Developed App Provides Training for Cochlear Implant Users

August 12, 2014

Cochlear implants—small, surgically implanted electronic devices that enable someone who is deaf or severely hard of hearing to hear—are used by more the 325,000 people worldwide. While the devices don’t restore normal hearing, they provide a useful representation of sounds, making it possible to understand speech. Many people, however, face challenges learning to use cochlear […]

Hack-Proof: Hopkins at the Forefront of Push to Make Computers Secure

August 8, 2014

Johns Hopkins and four other schools have won a $5 million grant from the National Science Foundation to establish the Center for Encrypted Functionalities, through which researchers will devise encryption methods to mask from outside observers the inner workings of computer programs. The technique is called obfuscation. The five-year project that starts immediately is a […]
