The Future of Cryptocurrencies
More than 10 years since the first bitcoin transaction in January 2009, and almost two years since a speculative spike pushed the price per bitcoin to almost $20,000, cryptocurrencies are moving beyond cypherpunks and anti-government culture into the world of governments and traditional institutions. The transition is impossible to ignore. While some governments, central banks and financial companies see cryptocurrencies as a threat, others want to harness the advantages they offer. And some governments see cryptocurrencies as a way to save their own struggling economies. To understand whether nonsovereign currencies can serve as a default currency and what threat they pose to governments or how beneficial they might become, it's useful to examine some of the most interesting geopolitical and corporate use cases available.

And these days, finding a way into information systems seems easier than ever amid the growing number of "smart" devices connected to our homes and businesses. Voice-controlled and hands-free microphones and speakers -- Amazon's Echo and Alexa, Google's Home Assistant, Apple's Siri and Microsoft's Cortana, to name a few -- welcome technology into our lives and trumpet the dawn of a new era: the age of artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things.

The Manhunt Is Over, but the Investigation Has Just Begun
An explosion in New Jersey on Sept. 17 marked the start of a busy two days for grassroots jihadists in the United States -- and for the law enforcement officers responding to the attacks. In the span of 48 hours, both emergency situations were dealt with and the primary suspects were either taken into custody or dead. But the work is far from over for U.S. law enforcement. The old homicide unit motto goes, "Our day begins when your day ends," and the saying is no less true for the officials tasked with handling the long and difficult investigations ahead.
