    Event Details

    How AI is Changing Cybersecurity
    “AI is the new electricity!” proclaims Mr Andrew Ng, co-founder of Google Brain. Just as we need to know how to harness electricity safely, we also need to know how to deploy AI securely to power our businesses. In some scenarios, the security of AI systems is a matter of life and death. Hence, it is imperative that AI systems developed are robust and resilient against malice, mischance and misuse. On the flipside, cyber-adversaries can also exploit AI and we need to understand how to counter them.
    This talk will provide food-for-thought in the areas of security of AI systems, AI-powered attacks and use of AI in cybersecurity.
