Digital Deception and Solder Patents
When someone is trying to lie to you in face-to-face exchange, you may be able to tell by their shifting eyes. But what if that deception comes in text communication or in an email? We listen back to Ben’s conversation with Joey George, an Iowa State University professor of Management Information Systems. He’s studied computer mediated deceptive communication and will tell us how we’re learning to lie digitally. Then, a look at the Ames Laboratory and patents developed there- including a 40-million dollar lead-free solder patent. In 2011, the patent become the top royalty income generator at Iowa State. Ben talks with Ames Lab Senior Metallurgist Iver Anderson who led the lead-free solder project.
