A joint event between the University of Surrey’s Centre for Cyber Security and the SASIG, the UK’s premier cybersecurity network.
The use of artificial intelligence, specifically machine learning techniques, is becoming pervasive in modern life. This provides both opportunity and challenge when considering the security of digital systems.
New AI techniques are increasingly being used to assist cybersecurity professionals by spotting attack patterns, network anomalies or staff behaviours that might be cause for concern. Unfortunately, AI can also be used by attackers, and there is growing evidence that they are doing so.
The AI systems are new attack surfaces in themselves, with new techniques being developed to deliberately subvert them.
This session will explore all of these themes and highlight the steps we need to start taking in order to secure our digital futures.
A Q&A panel session will follow the presentations, and informal networking will be available after the event, with food and drink provided.
The event is free to attend for friends of Surrey and SASIG members. Further event details, including directions to the venue, will be sent out to registered attendees nearer the time.
