The data war is in full swing. Foreign agents are hacking major corporations, major corporations are collecting massive amounts of consumer data, and the NSA is listening to all of them.

With malevolent hackers in one corner and oppressive regimes in another, data security is as important to the global economy and human rights as free speech and the rule of law.

Join us as we profile a new generation of programmers helping consumers and companies alike protect their financial information, their identities, and their freedom. Because it turns out we need people to keep us safe from the people who are keeping us safe.

Severe spinal cord injuries resulting in total paralysis are usually considered permanent, with no hope of recovery. And yet, in a handful of patients spanning multiple levels of severity, movement is being regained.
By B. David Zarley

Severe spinal cord injuries (SCIs) -- often called complete injuries by clinicians -- are ones where no readable signal from the brain reaches the spinal cord beneath the trauma, resulting in total paralysis. The possibility that a patient with this type of severe injury might regain movement was once considered so remote that rehab has traditionally seemed a waste of time. And yet, in a handful of patients spanning multiple…

How 3D-Printing Is Revolutionizing Heart Surgery
When a young boy was facing a complicated and dangerous heart operation, his doctors created an exact model of his heart to plan the surgery. And it probably saved his life.
Watch Now

Joseph had one of the most complicated heart conditions his doctors had ever seen. He faced a long and dangerous operation or a heart transplant. Without either, he wouldn't survive. Opting for surgery, Dr. Petros Anagnostopoulos at the American Family Children's Hospital prepped like few have ever done. He and his team 3D-printed a copy of Joseph's heart that they could explore and understand. It was another step forward in…
