Ensure Responsible Development and Deployment of AI and ML Systems

  • Learn the fundamentals of AI & ML before diving into how they affect and change security, ethics, and privacy
  • Expert insights from trainers who use AI in the field and who understand the complexities of AI and ML security
  • Focused attention on future-proof skills so you can stay ahead in the rapidly evolving AI and ML landscape

This highly interactive 2-day training is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the fundamentals of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), while emphasizing the importance of security, ethics, and privacy. You will start by learning essential AI and ML concepts, popular algorithms, and generative AI techniques. The course will then explore AI & ML security basics before diving into system and infrastructure security, privacy and ethical considerations, and legal and regulatory compliance. Security and AI experts Omar Santos and Dr. Petar Radanliev will emphasize best practices for securing AI and ML systems throughout while using real-world examples.

Come ready to explore common threats, vulnerabilities, and attack vectors, as well as mitigation strategies along with the ethical considerations and privacy aspects of AI and ML. This course is built to teach you how to ensure responsible development and deployment of AI and ML systems and will provide real-life examples that we use on a daily-basis with ChatGPT, GitHub Co-pilot, DALL-E, Midjourney, DreamStudio (Stable Diffusion), and others.

By the end of the class, students will have a solid foundation in AI and ML principles and be better prepared to develop secure and ethical systems while being mindful of privacy concerns. The course will be highly interactive, featuring real-world examples and discussions to ensure a comprehensive understanding of AI, ML, security, ethics, and privacy.
