Title: Where AI meets Safety and Security
Meeting ID: 674 3268 2790
Bio: Simin Nadjm-Tehrani is a Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science at Linköping University. She leads the Real-time Systems Laboratory and has research interests that span the areas of dependability, security, and resource efficiency. She is a WASP faculty member within the national Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems, and Software Program, a strategic national program for the advancement of research and education in these areas.
Abstract: AI is proclaimed to transform the digital society as we know it today at a rapid pace. With the advances in sensor technologies, computational platforms, and distributed and parallel algorithms, data-driven approaches are considered a cornerstone for efficiency in the next generation of systems. We will see future manufacturing, communication networks, and supply chains in many different sectors capitalize on the advancements in AI. The road map, is, however, still missing a few bits of the puzzle. Will the systems of the future be more trustworthy compared to the ones that we use today? Will the use of AI be a double-edged sword so that it can both be exploited by adversaries to make system goals unattainable, and defend systems by predicting malfunctions, overloads, and attacks? Will the use of the resources needed for this brave new world be compatible with our sustainability goals? In this talk, Simin Nadjm-Tehrani will describe some works in her research group that try to understand the underlying concepts for answering these important questions.
