How do urban studies and computer science intersect to protect critical urban infrastructure?

As we continue to invest and rely upon interconnected, smart devices (the Internet of Things), are we providing gateways to disable or attack entire smart cities of the future?

DUSP PhD candidate, Greg Falco, in partnership with the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) is examining how design choices, such as providing a device with minimal memory and processing power while still connecting it to a digital network, make such devices susceptible to cyberattacks.
