AI has become an essential tool for cybersecurity: in monitoring traffic flows, for instance, or electronic communications during anti-terrorism surveillance. Some applications, however, raise ethical issues, such as the profiling of “problems groups,” whose definitions vary between nations and according to the whims of their leaders.

AI can also fail, leading to negative outcomes. Cybersecurity that aims to protect our critical infrastructure and attack that of our enemies often claim to use AI, but the applications may turn out to be neither intelligent nor useful for intelligence-gathering, and may even turn against their users. Can we trust artificial intelligence for our security? Who is accountable for the failure of cybersecurity systems?

The experts will discuss our reliance on AI-based cybersecurity applications, and on the ethical, moral and legal implications.
