In the AI race, did security get left in the dust?
Across nearly every field, expectations of the tremendous value that will be delivered by AI are building. Every day, new products and projects are announced by private and public orgs alike—fuelling the race to incorporate AI into their digitalisation plans, or fear being left in the dust. In this talk we will look at the impact of this feverish rush to AI development and adoption on two increasingly important values that are often overlooked—security and privacy. We will cover recent, real examples of both purposeful and accidental misuse of AI technologies as well as published attacks against known weakness in some of the most hyped applications of AI such as self-driving cars and smart CCTV. Attendees will walk away with a greater awareness of the current state of security in AI and clear recommendations for managing the risk associated with its adoption.
