CyberSecAI has been the best virtual conference experience I’ve had. Throughout the day, the speakers did an excellent job of presenting a diverse range of interesting and applicable topics of AI/ML use in the security space in a clear, intuitive manner. As always a highlight of in-person events, I enjoyed connecting and discussing my talk and other talks with my peers.

“Even during a pandemic, the CyberSec&AI 2020 event was able to shorten the global distance between cybersecurity and machine learning experts one more time!

It was so delightful and inspiring to discuss with other people in these fields, and I felt honored to be part of such an important event. Looking forward to the 2021 edition!
