Main theme: AI for privacy and security
CyberSec&AI Connected will explore the themes of AI for privacy and security, revealing the challenges and opportunities facing all those working and researching at the intersection of AI, machine learning and cybersecurity.
AI and privacy
In an increasingly digital world, the matter of data privacy has never been so central to how we govern, how we work, and how we interact as a society and as individuals. How does AI help and hinder responsible data privacy usage and what technical and ethical challenges does it pose?
AI and security
With continuing advances in adversarial AI technology, the severity of cyberattacks and cybercrime can only be expected to increase. How can AI be employed to counter new trends, block previously unknown attack methods, and provide people, businesses, and governments with safe cyber environments?
Our technical workshops provide a platform for cybersecurity practitioners and researchers to deep dive into the latest research, technology, and case studies around AI and machine learning in cybersecurity and privacy.
