AI4CYBER – Artificial Intelligence for next generation CYBERsecurity
Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence for Cybersecurity Reinforcement and System Resilience.
AI4CYBER works to establish an Ecosystem of next generation AI-based services for supporting critical system developers and operators to efficiently manage system robustness, resilience, and appropriate response in the face of advanced and AI-powered cyberattacks.
The project will develop a collection of innovative resilience and autonomous response services that leverage AI models and Big Data, aimed to be encapsulated in cybersecurity tools to ensure a continuum of system protection.
Artificial intelligence (AI) has a dual role to play in cybersecurity – as offensive vs. defensive technology. AI can be used as a weapon by malicious actors and attackers, while it can be a powerful mechanism to detect threats and protect systems against attacks. AI4CYBER works in the development of defensive AI.
Specifically, AI4CYBER will develop a new breed of AI-driven services to detect and respond to advanced and AI-powered attacks, as well as services for code testing with smarter flaw identification and code-fixing automation.
AI4CYBER solution validation focuses on three key sectors: energy, banking and hospital services.
