Indrakshi Ray, professor in the Department of Computer Science, hosted CSU’s first annual Cyber Camp. Her goal: making cybersecurity accessible and fun.
CSU computer scientists and mathematicians are seeking to bring mathematics-based clarity to how artificial neural networks function, and how they can be better protected against security threats.
Like many students who double major, Henry Ives chose one program out of passion – music – and the other out of practicality – computer science. With time, however, those lines blurred.
