ARTISAN 2023 Summer School

The ARTISAN PhD Summer School (Role and effects of ARTificial  Intelligence in Secure ApplicatioNs) tackles the issues related to  Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) with regards to security and safety applications.

The last years have witnessed an increasing adoption of AI and especially ML techniques in many automated systems covering almost all the main domains of our lives. AI-based components are performing complex tasks such as pattern recognition, image recognition, and even control, and are more and more being used in security-critical and safety-critical systems, with evident examples
in domains like the automotive, industrial automation, and energy systems, among others.

The objective of ARTISAN is to illustrate what are the foundations, applications, benefits, misuse and related effects of the application of AI and ML in security-critical systems and infrastructures. ARTISAN aims to explain how AI/ML is a double-edge sword which can either enhance security or expose novel security threats.

In ARTISAN, AI and ML are addressed as i) means to improve the security of target systems and applications; ii) means to attack applications; iii) an enabling technology that is beneficial to build innovative systems and applications, but that can expose itself to novel vulnerabilities.

The school is mostly intended for PhD Students in Computer Science and Engineering, and it includes foundations, techniques, industrial applications, and ethical and legal considerations.
