Due to the complexities and related risks provided by the ubiquitous deployment of AI there is an ever increasing need to provide users with security and privacy, while living online and surrounded by connected devices. During the talk we will debate the current and future role of AI, namely machine learning and game theory, AI-enabled cybersecurity problems and how AI can help to increase user privacy and safety from AI algorithms both online and in the physical world.

The discussion after the presentation will be chaired by Professor Michael Luck.

Artificial Intelligence is the new phenomenon of the 21st century and has evolved out of the realm of science fiction and at best, a few technologically advanced minds and IT professionals, to everyday topics of discussion and one of the key drivers of the future progress of humankind. The objective of the  AI Science Café series, which will consist of five presentations by high profile, world acclaimed experts, is to introduce, present and publicly discuss various topics that impact our professional as well as our personal lives. As AI topics clearly generate more questions than answers, the series will strive to unveil trends and expectations from the inevitable social and technological changes which the future will bring.

Science Café is a series of popular science presentations and talks by the best Czech scientists and innovators of today presented by the Czech Centre London. Inspired by the phenomenon of Cafe Scientifique which was first established in the UK in 1998 and spread across the world as a place where anyone could come to discuss the latest ideas in science and technology over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, Science Café is an informal forum for the discussion of current work and interesting scientific issues.
