Dakota digital discussions

A series of webinars that will respond to the ongoing impacts that digitization, artificial intelligence, and autonomous systems are having on our society.

April 20, Noon to 1:00 p.m CT

Welcome to the Dakota Digital Discussions (DDD) monthly webinar series. The webinars  focus on the implications of the rapid digital transformation of our society.

Hyrum Anderson, PhD, and Ram S.S. Kumar—distinguished adversarial machine learning researchers—will discuss the most significant risk to currently deployed artificial intelligence systems: cybersecurity threats, which can undermine AI systems in industry, government and the military. Hyrum Anderson, PhD, and Ram Shankar Siva Kumar, wrote an article in the current issue of Dakota Digital Review (titled, “AI Security: The National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence and Adversarial Machine Learning”), which is an excerpt from the first chapter of Not With A Bug, But With A Sticker: Attacks on Machine Learning Systems and What To Do About Them, which will be published by John Wiley & Sons on May 2.

Moderator: Jeremy Straub, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at NDSU and a Faculty Fellow at NDSU’s Challey Institute. His research spans a continuum from autonomous technology development to technology commercialization to asking questions of technology use ethics, and national and international policy. Prof. Straub has published more than 60 articles in academic journals and more than 100 peer-reviewed conference papers. He serves on multiple editorial boards and conference committees. Prof. Straub is also the lead inventor on two U.S. patents and a member of multiple technical societies.
