Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning discussed at the URJC

An area of growing importance in any enterprise, such as cybersecurity, and two areas of immediate future in economic development, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, are meeting this year at the 18th edition of the Summer Courses of Rey Juan Carlos University. Specifically, in the course that the Research Center for Technological Risk Management (CIGTR) organizes each year since 2011.

From 26th to 28th of June, 15 world-renowned experts and researchers will pass through the Teatro Real Carlos III of Aranjuez to share with the enrolled students their knowledge of the subjects covered in this course. Among them, there are renowned figures such as the researcher at the Computer Technology and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Una-May O'Reilly; the member of the Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (IIIA) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), Jesús Cerquíades; or the director of Emerging Security Intelligence Programs at IBM, Vijay Dheap.

The main objective of these papers is the application to cybersecurity with a common purpose, but covering a wide spectrum. The program with all the papers is structured as follows:
