Making wearable smart devices “smarter” and more secure

nwelding   April 22, 2019

Making wearable smart devices “smarter” and more secure Researchers in the College of Engineering have been pursuing a new authentication process for wearable devices to make them less susceptible to attack. In fact, they have developed a generic implicit wearable device user authentication mechanism that uses combinations of three types of less-informative coarse-grained minute-level biometrics: behavioral (step counts), physiological (heart rate) and hybrid (calorie burn and metabolic equivalent of task), all of which can be easily obtained from most wearables.

Many coastal homes are unprotected from hurricanes and homeowners have no intention of retrofitting, study finds

nwelding   April 10, 2019

Many coastal homes are unprotected from hurricanes and homeowners have no intention of retrofitting, study finds New research from the University of Notre Dame shows that many coastal homes have significant structural vulnerabilities that leave homeowners and their homes largely unprotected from storms. Additionally, the majority of coastal homeowners have little to no intention of reducing these structural vulnerabilities, even though they live in areas frequently affected by damaging hurricanes and flooding.

Allergic to the cure: Researchers create a new and quicker way to detect platin drug allergies for cancer patients

nwelding   March 15, 2019

Allergic to the cure: Researchers create a new and quicker way to detect platin drug allergies for cancer patients Platins, the most widely used chemotherapeutic drugs, are displaying an alarming rise in drug hypersensitivity reactions much more severe than the watery eyes or runny noses associated with hay fever, which is also a Type 1, immediate hypersensitivity reaction. A Notre Dame-led team has developed a safer way of determining hypersensitivity in patients.
