Recently ATMs have started being emptied after hackers accessed the bank’s general business networks. This week we look at how the internet is connecting our world in new ways.

Joseph Sifakis, winner of ACM A.M. Turing Award in 2007 and an Emeritus Senior CNRS Researcher at the Verimag lab in Grenoble explains the security risks of the Internet of Things. We also speak to
Ashish Rauniyar, a PhD student at the University of Oslo in Norway about what better security mechanisms would look like.

Vinton Cerf, winner of ACM A.M. Turing Award in 2004, and the vice President and chief Internet evangelist for Google talks about what planetary internet system would look like.

In UnScience we look at whether dogs can actually smell our fears.

The Science Inside is presented by Elna Sch├╝tz and DJ Keyez. Our production team is Gabriel Chemhuru with technical production by Kutlwano Serame. Original concept by Paul McNally.
