Author(s): Adam Cardinal-Stakenas*
Companies: National Security Agency
Keywords: Artificial Intelligence; Machine Learning; Data Science ; Cybersecurity; Defense

Recent developments in artificial intelligence have captured the popular imagination and the attention of governments and businesses across the world. From digital assistants, to smart homes, to self-driving cars, AI appears to be on the verge of taking over many parts of our daily lives. Meanwhile, as the world becomes more networked, industry, governments, and individuals are facing a growing array of cybersecurity threats. In this talk, we will discuss the intersection of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and cybersecurity. In particular, we will look at how some popular machine learning methods will and will not change how we do cybersecurity, we will separate what in the AI and ML space is realistic from what is science fiction, and we will attempt to identify the true potential of ML to positively impact cybersecurity.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
