techUK joint AI and Cyber Working Group Created

A joint AI and Cyber Programme working group is being created to produce a thought leadership report that will look to demystify the current AI and cyber landscape...

As part of techUK’s AI Week a roundtable was held to discuss the cyber security opportunities, questions and possible challenges being raised by the development and adoption of AI technologies. At the event members highlighted the importance of demystifying and addressing current security concerns raised around AI, the potential of AI to bolster cyber security capabilities and the role AI could play in attracting more people to join the cyber security industry.

The event also discussed the role techUK should play in helping to drive discussion on these important areas. It was agreed that techUK has a key role to provide clarity on the current debate around the security of AI by deconstructing the current landscape and addressing current misconceptions around the security of AI technologies. It was also felt that techUK should look to promote how AI and cyber are complementary and that AI technologies can assist, not replace human decision making in cyber security.

Based on this feedback and call to action by techUK members a joint AI and Cyber Programme working group is being created to produce a thought leadership report that will look to demystify the current AI and cyber landscape, build trust in the security of emerging AI technologies and demonstrate the opportunities AI offers the cyber security industry including ways in which AI can be used as a tool to address the cyber security skills gap.

We are now looking for members to join this working group that will begin its work on 10 September. If you would like to be involved in developing techUK’s Cyber and AI report please click here to register.
