Trailblazing the AI for Cybersecurity Discipline: Overview of the Field and Promising Directions
In this talk, I will be summarizing the state of AI for cybersecurity and its promising future directions. I will also provide examples of recent research at the intersection of AI and cybersecurity. Finally, I will summarize promising mechanisms to help practitioners and academics make significant headway in tackling these grand AI for cybersecurity issues. Selected discussions around these mechanisms will include emerging conferences and journals to archive research, educational opportunities to help cultivate the next generation of “cyber AI” professionals, and federal funding opportunities to help financially support systematic streams of research and education for AI for cybersecurity.
