1st International Workshop on A.I. in Security

An IJCAI Workshop , Melbourne, Australia, August 2017

Call for Papers

Artificial intelligence has an important role to play in improving the resilience of society to both digital and physical threats, and in safeguarding the privacy of individuals, as the world becomes increasingly interconnected. Relevant AI techniques include: knowledge representation; probabilistic reasoning; machine learning; anomaly detection; image recognition; speech recognition; social network analysis; and many others. For example, anomaly detection and temporal data mining can enable the automated detection of physical and/or digital threats; while advances in AI for autonomous vehicles can allow robotic vehicles to be used to secure remote locations that are hazardous to humans, and for search and rescue. AI for physical security is also being successfully used in homeland security applications.

To date the physical and digital security communities have limited opportunities to share their research findings and to engage with the wider AI community. This workshop will to bring together academic researchers and industry practitioners in a single location, to present and discuss their new research. It will also provide an opportunity for attendees to highlight current challenges in AI for digital and physical security, propose multi-disciplinary solutions, and showcase the application of AI in this domain.

This workshop seeks novel research, case studies and survey papers in topics that include, but are not limited to, the following:

Security Analytics Machine Learning; Security Threat Detection and Visualization; Future Threat Inference; Situational Awareness Monitoring; Automated Message Monitoring; Security Decision Support; Network Event Detection
