Podcast: Science fiction and security
The University of Washington is thinking outside of the box when it comes to educating computer science students about information security. In this edition of the SC Magazine podcast, associate professor Yoshi Kohno explains how instructors are using "science fiction" to force students to think critically about the discipline. Considering how quickly technology evolves, how often threats change and how wide a scope the security field encompasses, pupils must use out-of-the-box thinking if they are to succeed upon graduation.
