    An acoustics-based method can utilize the human body as a communication channel to propagate information across different devices. The proposed system can propagate acoustic signals under 20 kHz within or between human bodies and even between the human body and the environment. The web extra at https://youtu.be/6Vo3gm5oJnM illustrates human-body-mediated communication concepts discussed in the art... View full abstract»

    Neurotechnologies in clinical applications can image the brain noninvasively, but they typically require surgical insertion to stimulate it. Although an increasingly popular alternative is to use noninvasive stimulation to enhance nervous system functions, questions about its effectiveness and ethical use remain unanswered.

    The ability of nanonetworks to exploit harvested energy from ambient sources efficiently and economically will determine the extent of their future application. Research has already identified processes, issues, and challenges for these networks, most of which center on the energy-harvesting process, optimal energy consumption, and communication protocols.

    The familiar story of Moore's law is actually inaccurate. This article corrects the story, leading to different projections for the future. Moore's law is a fluid idea whose definition changes over time. It thus doesn't have the ability to "end," as is popularly reported, but merely takes different forms as the semiconductor and computer industries evolve. View full abstract»

    Until the day comes when all vehicles are fully autonomous, self-driving cars must be more than safe and efficient--they must also understand and interact naturally with human drivers. The web extras include videos demonstrating "rude" behavior by Tesla's Autopilot system, www.youtube.com/watch?v=el4OdwtgzNk; a human driver confused by self-driving technology, www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uj-rK8V-rik; ...
