EUROCONTROL Hosts “AI for Cyber and Cyber for AI” on 15 Jun

AI4EU ecosystem partner EUROCONTROL will host a webinar on “AI for Cyber and Cyber for AI” on 15 June 2021. The 90 minutes webinar from 3-4:30 PM CET will tackle the key questions of how is AI improving cybersecurity – and how can we use AI to counter AI-powered cyber-attacks?

The webinar gathers a panel of AI experts from different aviation organisations, including EUROCONTROL, European Defence Agency, Thales, and Airbus, to provide a clearer picture of how aviation’s cyber-resilience can be reinforced using AI, and innovative AI/ML solutions that are already in use to address cyber threats.

According to the aviation industry, Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have a key role to play in mitigating cyber risk in aviation by identifying and responding to cybersecurity threats. However, AI can also be deployed for malicious intent, with hackers using the technology to commit larger-scale and more efficient attacks.

The online event is part of the new FLY AI webinar series, which EUROCONTROL is organising on behalf of the European Aviation High-Level Group on Artificial intelligence (AI) as a first step towards building an AI community of practice for aviation. As it is happening, AI is already transforming the world and has enormous potential to help the aviation industry build back better, more sustainably and more resiliently.

In its first webinar on AI & Aviation titled “Partnering for AI in Aviation” on 24 Feb 2021, AI4EU representative presented its Platform, services, and the growing European AI ecosystem under the AI4EU effort.

The FLY AI webinar series aims to demystify and unleash the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) to transform European aviation and help deliver much-needed sustainability and resilience as the industry builds back from the current pandemic. Each webinar will explore one of the key recommendations developed by the Group to accelerate AI deployment across the aviation sectors.

These webinars are a great opportunity to get a better understanding of the key AI challenges facing aviation, and how they can be addressed; learn more about AI best practices from aviation stakeholders already applying AI; find out what is planned in terms of AI-related European regulations; take part in the discussions and contribute to building an AI community of practice for aviation.

The series is partnering with industrial and intergovernmental organisations and institutions including Airports Council International, Airbus, AeroSpace and Defence Industries Industries Association of Europe, CANSO, EASA, European Commission, European Defence Agency, Heathrow, Honeywell, IATA, IFATCA, IFATSEA, NATO, SESAR JU, Thales.
