Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to make headlines as the technology is further developed. Not only is AI impacting people’s everyday lives at home through virtual assistants and online shopping recommendations, it is also a tool that can benefit the workplace. One of the main advantages is using machine learning technology to gather data. This type […]
Security company Suprema recently discovered that its biometric security system is unencrypted and open to the public. This means millions of users’ personal information are easy targets for cyber attacks. Security researchers working with a virtual private networks service company, vpnmentor, analyzed Suprema’s system. They were shocked at the amount of open data that they […]

The results of the fourth annual Pulse of Engineering Survey, conducted by IEEE GobalSpec, are available, providing insightful perspectives from the minds of engineers around the world on a variety of topics, from work environment to performance measurement, professional challenges and competition, and more. Of the 2,236 survey respondents, taken from a pool of both […]
Engineering is just one of many professions that requires participation in continuing education programs in order to maintain a license. However, even if your particular line of work doesn’t require a professional certificate or license, voluntarily completing a continuing education program goes a long way toward demonstrating your commitment to improving your expertise in your […]
Since the end of World War II, English has become the established language of scholarly communication. It’s recognized as the international language of science and engineering. Academic reward structures in many countries place great emphasis on publication in international journals that are mostly English-language. As technology advances globally, engineers must be able to communicate across […]
The IEEE eLearning Library is an excellent resource for continuing professional education, offering hundreds of hours of courses designed to keep engineers up-to-date on emerging technologies and trends. eLearning has proved to be 25-60% more effective than traditional face-to-face learning. Not only is eLearning more effective, but it also saves more than half the […]
