Public Lecture: Cyber Systems Arms Races

November 1, 2018 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Una-May O'Reilly
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

In cyber space attackers are constantly adapting to ever improving network defenses. On the flip-side, anti-virus detectors must be retrained as attackers enhance their malware using adversarial examples that attack the vulnerabilities of Machine Learning-based models. This results in an arms race as defender sna attackers on both sides take turns crafting new responses to each other's actions.

In this talk, Una-May O'Reilly will give insight into this fascinating topic and discuss the work her team at MIT undertakes to develop new techniques for computationally modeling cyber security arms races — resulting in robust defensive solutions and an improved understanding of adversarial dynamics.
