    Interactive proofs — mathematical games that underlie much modern cryptography — work even if players try to use quantum information to cheat.Interactive proofs, which MIT researchers helped pioneer, have emerged as one of the major research topics in theoretical computer science. In the classic interactive proof, a questioner with limited computational power tries to extract reliable information from a computationally powerful but unreliable respondent. Interactive proofs are the basis of cryptographic systems now in wide use, but for computer scientists, they’re just as important for the insight they provide into the complexity of computational problems. Twenty years ago, researchers showed...

    Soon, buying that must-have purse or set of kitchen knives on television shopping channel HSN could mean reaching for your TV remote control instead of the telephone. St. Petersburg based HSN today plans to announce a project with cable TV giant Cablevision that lets viewers buy HSN products directly through their TVs using interactive screens on their television sets. HSN is the first major television shopping channel to launch such a system, informally called "shop by remote," though cable TV executives expect more shopping channels will follow as digital cable networks make interactive cable TV features more commonplace.

    ..."Get me rewrite" will in effect be a menu option, a way for unhappy readers to go online and offer their own versions of articles they do not like. Their hope is to convert the paper, through its Web site, www.news-record.com, into a virtual town square, where citizens have a say in the news and where every reader is a reporter. This feature, part of a planned overhaul of The News & Record's Web site that is to begin next week, is a potent symbol of a transformation taking place across the country, where top-down, voice-of-God journalism is being...

    Southwest Florida residents who used to air their grievances against local government on the radio airwaves have moved their forum to the Internet. Local talk radio used to be the forum of choice, but former listeners and some civic activists say Web sites provide a more democratic forum to express their frustrations and exchange ideas. Two Web sites launched this summer with the intent to provide local residents that forum with even greater anonymity than radio. SpeakOutSWFLA.com launched three weeks ago. (The Web address was incorrect in a story in Saturday’s paper.) FloridaSOUNDOFF.com launched in June. The online forums have...
