As cyber threats continue to evolve at an unprecedented rate, the demand for innovative defense mechanisms grows stronger. Artificial intelligence (AI) presents a powerful ally in this battle, promising to learn and respond to cyber adversaries. As the cybersecurity domain is inundated with vast amounts of data and the need for real-time decision-making, it is particularly poised to benefit from AI’s capabilities. Machine learning algorithms, specifically deep learning techniques, excel in identifying intricate patterns within vast datasets and predicting potential threats. Natural language processing (NLP) models, like large language models (LLMs), contribute to context-aware analysis and response automation, especially in scenarios involving textual data. Additionally, Reinforcement Learning enables adaptive and evolving defense mechanisms by learning from real-time interactions with cyber threats. The convergence of these AI approaches fosters a dynamic synergy that fortifies cybersecurity with advanced, proactive measures.

This 2023 HONET Symposium on AI-Enabled Cybersecurity (AI4CS) invites experts, researchers, and practitioners from academia and industry to present their latest research, findings, and innovations in leveraging artificial intelligence to enhance cybersecurity.

Join us in this symposium to explore the frontier of AI-enabled cybersecurity, share knowledge, and shape the future of this exciting intersection of technologies.
