Ari Juels, computer science professor at the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute at Cornell Tech, was quoted in two worldwide publications recently:

The Guardian (U.K) on October 25 on artificial intelligence-powered body scanners: “One of the hazards of algorithmic, as opposed to human, detection is that an attacker who can reverse-engineer a machine can almost certainly find a way to make dangerous objects appear benign. Countermeasures may be possible, but the research community does not yet have a good sense of how to construct them.” on October 25 on blockchain bandits: “Ethereum has showed just how resilient crypto-currencies can be in the way that it has unwound the damage done by the attacker.” Also, "There are huge advantages to the closed systems not only because they are more resilient to attack and not vulnerable to processor-power based attacks.”
