ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE & CYBER SECURITY
Cybersecurity is one of the most pressing problems experienced in almost all industries. The focus of this group is on the combination of the two disciplines, Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence. This area offers exciting prospects for automation, understanding and prediction in an environment where computing power, data collection and data storage increase rapidly.
