Random Numbers: Hard Times Ahead for Hackers

415ebb11038c0dae13f2e0261fe3bcf9_f605.jpg

Whenever we need to communicate in secret, a cryptographic key is needed. For this key to work, it must consist of numbers chosen at random without any structure – just the opposite of using the birthdate of our favourite pet. But, for a human, it is extremely difficult to choose without creating any bias, even by hitting the keyboard chaotically. To solve this problem, researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, have developed a new random numbers generator based on the principles of quantum physics.

Cell Phone Use and Distracted Driving Begins in the Mind

Even simple cell phone conversations can cause distracted driving. Researchers have found listening on the phone while driving creates a lag in the mind to extract itself from one object before fixing attention on another object. Results appear in the journal Psychonomic Bulletin and Review.
