About the conference

CyberSec&AI was launched by Avast and Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU) in 2019 to provide a forum to bring together the AI, machine learning, and cybersecurity communities. Building on it’s successful and award-winning physical debut, CyberSec&AI Connected now operates as a virtual conference, allowing a truly global audience to come together and engage with their peers from around the world.

Last edition of CyberSec&AI enabled researchers, academics, and tec hprofessionals come together in one digital domain. Across more than eight hoursof in-depth presentations, expert-led workshops, roundtables, live discussions, and direct networking, they focused on the theme of AI for privacy andsecurity. Our own researchers were represented among the speekers as weel. To point out at least  one of the amazing talks, here is a summary of Viliam Lisý’s presentation on how lessons learned from AI versus human poker games can help beat the cybercriminals. Save the date and get excited for November 2021!
