Has the World’s First Unhackable Chip Arrived?

Ozgur Sinanoglu is a Research Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NYU Tandon School of Engineering.
Ozgur Sinanoglu is obsessed with computer chips — a passion born at age 10 when his father brought home a Commodore 64. Now 42 and the associate dean of engineering at New York University Abu Dhabi, Sinanoglu claims that he and his colleagues have designed an unhackable chip. … Hired as a visiting assistant professor under the guidance of Ramesh Karri, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering, Sinanoglu got hooked on the challenge of staying ahead of bad actors with malicious intent. “It’s a whole different game,” he says, one that requires constantly outpacing hackers’ creativity and intelligence. “It’s actually a more fun game,” he’s quick to add with a grin.
