As America’s strategic competitors advance their technological advantage, the U.S. must take action to avoid losing its edge, said the undersecretary of defense for research and engineering. 

On Capitol Hill Thursday, Heidi Shyu told lawmakers at the House Armed Services Committee what the Defense Department must do to maintain its technological advantage. The first step, she said, is building a strong foundation for research and development within the department. The second, she said, is changing how DOD does business. 

“Every strong structure needs to stand on a solid foundation to ensure this country retains our edge and fuels the future

The US Justice Department seized on Tuesday $3.6 billion in bitcoin that it says is linked to the 2016 hack of the Hong Kong cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex, which was one of the world’s biggest crypto companies. Authorities also arrested two people in Manhattan, charging them with conspiracy to launder cryptocurrency stolen during the hack. The bitcoin total taken in the hack is currently valued at $4.5 billion.

Officials seized over 94,000 bitcoin from Ilya Lichtenstein, 34, and


LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 27, 2021) — Given advancements in technology, society is calling upon engineers to solve the world’s most complex problems.

That call is being answered thanks to a unique partnership between the College of Engineering at the University of Kentucky UK and the Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC). Students can now earn an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) and a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Engineering Technology.  

The new Department of Engineering Technology — made possible in large part to a $2.25 million gift from Toyota — offers two four-year undergraduate degrees in lean systems engineering technology


Quantum technology seeks to harness the distinct properties of atoms, photons and electrons to build more powerful computers and other tools for processing information. A quantum Internet relies on photons exhibiting a quantum state known as entanglement, which allows them to share information over long distances without having a physical connection.

David Awschalom, a professor at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering and senior scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, called the Internet project a pillar of the nation’s quantum-research program.

“It’s the birth of a new technology. It’s becoming a global competition. Every major country on earth

Energy Department unveils plans for a quantum internet

The Department of Energy unveiled a blueprint for a nationwide quantum internet that builds on the research and resources at the national labs in molecular engineering, quantum information science, high-performance computing and advanced networking.

“From Long-distance Entanglement to Building a Nationwide Quantum Internet: Report of the DOE Quantum Internet Blueprint Workshop,” came out of a February 2020 workshop to develop the strategy for a national quantum internet, describing the essential research required, the engineering and design barriers, near-term goals. The report identifies the scientific applications,
