The 1st International Conference on Autonomous Intelligent Cyber-defence Agents (AICA 2021) will be held on March 15-16 2021
Faced with future hugely complex networks, systems and infrastructures on one hand, and with the anticipated huge growth of safety-critical autonomous systems on the other hand, human operators will not be in a position to monitor the cybersecurity of these assets and will not be able anymore to respond to cyber-attacks at the speed, scale and level of complexity needed. For instance, on the battleground, when Intelligent Things fight Intelligent Things in the future, Autonomous Intelligent Malware (AIM) will seek to disable our defence platforms, networks and command and control systems.
Our complex networks and systems and/or autonomous military systems and infrastructures will not work without embedding trustworthy autonomous cyber-defence technology that will fight autonomous intelligent malware and other forms of cyber-attacks at speed and scale. Autonomous intelligent cyber-defence Agents – AICA agents – will be a key enabler of our future military networks, devices and combat doctrines. And the AICA technology will be dual also as it will defend also civil networks and systems (IoT, SDN, 5G, Autonomous vehicles, …). AICA 2021 will be the first AICA conference. It will present the state of the art in Autonomous Cyber Defence. It will allow to discuss issues, gaps and challenges. Its conclusions will feed future research and contribute to creating a wider AICA research & technology community.
