Japanese gangster charged with trafficking nuclear materials
U.S. officials have brought charges of nuclear materials trafficking against a Japanese gangster who has been in federal custody since 2022.
In a case filled with international espionage, along with alleged weapons and drug trafficking, Takeshi Ebisawa has been charged with attempting to sell uranium and weapons-grade plutonium. The 60-year-old Japanese national—who is believed to be a leading figure in the Yakuza, the Japanese organized crime syndicate—faces a long list of federal charges that carry sentence of life in prison.

This panel highlights research supporting the design and optimization of information automation systems for nuclear power plants.
Much of the nuclear industry is currently focused on modernization of plant systems, including potential introduction of advanced automation, artificial intelligence, and other emerging technologies. The introduction of novel technologies will change the nature of much of the work currently conducted at nuclear plants. Effectively integrating new technical systems with the user community is key to ensuring their effectiveness once deployed. In this panel session, we highlight progress on a program of research focused on providing the industry with tools and techniques to support effective modernization from a human-systems integration point of view, specifically with regard to information automation.
