capacitive coupling

Electronics
The intentional or fortuitous transfer of energy within an electrical network by capacitance between circuit nodes.

Surgery
A potential endoscopic electrosurgical hazard, which occurs when electrical current is transferred from one conductor —e.g., an active electrode surrounded by insulation—into adjacent conductive materials—e.g., a trocar or tissue. The risk of tissue damage can be reduced by using low-power, low-voltage settings with intermittent rather than prolonged bursts, and by not operating near metal or conductive objects in the operative field.

Would-be attackers can either exploit cell-to-cell program interference, which exploits parasitic capacitance coupling to introduce errors in adjacent cells, or by using a technique known as read disturb, which repeatedly reads the same set of cells.
Beyond resistivity improvement, graphene interconnects would offer higher electron mobility, better thermal conductivity, higher mechanical strength and reduced capacitance coupling between adjacent wires.
This gives the design engineer a material equal in strength to that of a metal without having to provide a secondary sheath for capacitance coupling issues.
