Have real-world cyber security applications of AI been able to live up to the hype surrounding AI in the 21st century? Are we headed for another AI winter?
We invite two PhDs to discuss the current applications, successes, challenges, and weaknesses of AI in cyber security—from research to real-world application.
In our live seminar on Wednesday, December 15 at 11:00 AM (UTC +8), Dr. CK Chen and Dr. Abigail Koay will dive into the limitations of AI in cyber security.
Dr Abigail Koay is currently a Research Fellow in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at The University of Queensland. She was previously a Research Fellow at the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Waikato. Her research focuses on solving cybersecurity issues, particularly in early attack detection using machine / deep learning. She holds a PhD in Engineering (Network Security) from Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Prior to joining academia, she worked as a Network Engineer for several multinational corporations and has led various systems, networks, and security projects.
Dr. Chung-Kuan Chen is currently a Senior Researcher, the head of the Research Team at CyCraft Technology, and is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Soochow University in Taipei. His research focuses on both cyber attacks and cyber defense, where he leverages machine learning to assist in malware analysis and threat hunting as well as build automated attack and defense systems. He holds a PhD in Computer Science and Engineering from National Chiao-Tung University, Taiwan, and has been published in several academic journals and conference papers. He has spoken at various tech conferences, including BlackHat, HITCON, CHITB, RootCon, CodeBlue, FIRST, and VXCON and is also Chairman of the HITCON Review Committee, Director of the Association of Hackers in Taiwan, and is an active member of CHROOT.
