Employees of the Institute of Artificial Intelligence Problems took part in the First Annual Global Summit on Cyber Security GCS 2017

On June 14-15, 2017, the staff of the Institute of Artificial Intelligence took part in the First Annual Global Cyber Security Summit (GCS), which was held at the Congress and Exhibition Center "Parkovy". GCS was an unprecedented international event and was fully supported by a number of governmental and institutional organizations in Ukraine (the Committee on Informatization and Communications of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, the Office of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, the National Bank of Ukraine).

The plenary session "Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning" attracted special attention of the Institute of Artificial Intelligence Problems staff, where it was noted that a number of security solution providers are already using the benefits of artificial intelligence in the fight against cyber threats and attacks. Last year, for example, researchers at MIT Computer Science and the CSAIL lab developed an artificial intelligence system that uses controlled learning to detect threats and report threats. Once the analyst teaches the system to distinguish between real threats to national security and false alarms over several weeks, it ultimately minimizes the number of false alarms by noting only significant events that the system administrator can then investigate. Various methods based on artificial intelligence are also being studied to increase the level of security in corporate networks. And although there is still a long way to go, because according to N. Gleisher, "There are very few real solutions in cybersecurity in the format of artificial intelligence", but "It can happen on the path of further innovation."

GCS17 was attended by leading experts and representatives of cybersecurity companies from the United States, Europe and Israel. Participants and guests from more than 30 countries also took part in the summit, including representatives of ministries and departments, ambassadors of foreign countries, representatives of international organizations, banking and investment institutions, and defense experts. The summit focused on meeting the needs of the private, scientific, non-profit and public sectors at the same time.
