Complementing an already impressive speaker lineup for the main conference, CyberSec&AI Connected organizers have announced the schedule and topics for the event’s workshop sessions.
“We are really excited to have put together such a strong set of workshop presentations,” says Petr Somol, AI Research Director at Avast. “The quality of presenters — and the spectrum of institutions and organizations they represent — offer delegates a real chance to deep dive into the very latest research and thinking within AI, cybersecurity, and privacy.”
All workshop presentations will be followed by a live Q&A and in-depth discussion.
“Modern challenges from both cybersecurity and AI require solutions from industrial and academic researchers to meet and cross-pollinate,” says Fabrizio Biondi, AI Research Manager at Avast. “We are proud of having gathered such a distinguished group of experts to foster discussion leading to real improvements for the peace of mind of users everywhere.”
