AI in Information Security

The incredibly low tolerance for errors and a natural difficulty in collecting data has kept AI away from the hardest security problems. Furthermore, the AI community has not seriously dealt with the problem of reliability and malleability in adversarial contexts till recently. Yet, these guarantees are crucial to the use of AI in security. In this talk, we will discuss the state of AI in security and look at some methods that data and statistics can be used to both hack and secure systems.

The SPC AI Speaker Series

The South Park Commons AI tech talk series is being held on Tuesdays/Thursdays at 6 PM through September. This technical speaker series charts the breadth and impact of AI, seeking to answer three questions: (1) What fields and disciplines will be the most critically impacted in the next 5-10 years, (2) What are the specific technical advances that will drive this transformation, and (3) What ethical challenges and risk factors must be addressed.
