In 2019, Avast launched the annual CyberSec&AI conference to help bring the AI and cybersecurity community together. With the 2020 edition just announced, here’s a quick recap of last year’s event award-winning event.

Last October in Prague a new conference was founded for tech professionals and academics working at the intersection of AI and cybersecurity. It was designed as a place for them to exchange ideas, start dialogues, present research, and share best practice. 

Organized by Avast and the Czech Technical University (CTU), CyberSec & AI Prague brought together over 300 attendees from 19 different countries to answer the question: “How can AI help us live free, safe, and secure lives?”. It was such a success it was named ‘Event of the Year at the AI Awards.

See who and what captured the attention of the cybersecurity and AI community at last year’s conference.

Speakers included leading academics and professionals from institutions around the world such as Stanford University, University of Berkeley, University of Michigan, New York University (USA), University of Cagliari (Italy), EPFL (Switzerland), and the University of Toronto and Vector Institute (Canada).

Going virtual in 2020

Building on the success of 2019, and responding to the current challenges around international travel, CyberSec&AI Connected (October 8th, 2020) is a virtual event linking attendees to the global AI, machine learning, and cybersecurity communities, wherever they themselves may be located. 

It will explore the themes of AI for privacy and security, revealing the challenges and opportunities facing all of those working and researching at the intersection of AI and cybersecurity. A packed agenda of presentations, panel sessions, technical workshops and interactive networking has been drawn up to best facilitate the exchange of ideas and information. If conditions allow, there will also be physical meetups in Prague, London, and San Francisco.
