ECCRI Virtual Research Workshops – Spring session calendar out now

18 Mar 2024

ECCRI Virtual Research Workshops are back with the Spring session (March – June 2024) calendar! This year will feature senior and upcoming scholars presenting new research on the relationship between cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and other emerging technologies.

While the economic and social impacts of AI have dominated headlines over the last year, the implications of AI for cybersecurity (both offence and defence) have received less attention.

On the other hand, cybersecurity is one aspect of AI safety and security more broadly, and the course of cybersecurity policy offers important lessons for nascent AI governance conversations. Beyond AI, there are other emerging technologies – such as quantum computing, next-generation semiconductors, and biotechnologies – that also have the potential to significantly change the cybersecurity landscape. Our four workshops will shine a light on these rapidly evolving challenges, be sure to tune in!
