The Future Impact of AI on Cyber Crime

With machines fighting machines and increasingly sophisticated human attackers, we are now entering a new era of cyber-threats. The battle is no longer at the perimeter but inside of our organizations, and no security team can keep up with its speed. Cyber-attackers are quickly becoming silent and stealthy, and cyber defense has turned into an arms race.

This new wave of cyber-threats has seen skilled attackers that may lie low for weeks or months. By the time they take definitive steps, their actions blend in with the everyday hum of network activity. These attacks call for a change in the way we protect our most critical assets.

Self-learning and self-defending systems are now being deployed to continually assess business environments. Known as ‘immune system’ defense, this approach is used to uncover threats that have already penetrated the network border, and then automatically fight back. Unlike legacy approaches, which rely on rules or signatures, these technologies work autonomously, enable the security team to focus on high-value tasks, and can counter even fast-moving, automated attackers.

Scaling AI in the Enterprise

Fairness in machine learning – including deep learning – is a very complex concept that does not have a single solution. At the heart of the issue is Ethics and challenges in the training datasets – which humans has been trying to figure out since the beginning of civilization. There are several challenges, as Fairness considerations apply to human decision-making too. Most uncertain situations can be solved on a case-by-case basis. This will not work ‘at scale’ for algorithmic decision-making. Discrimination happens even when nobody is evil!, as ML is very good at picking up unintended proxies in the data. This session will examine the latest research and approaches with some concrete know how as a result of our work in the area to support all our ML products at Experian. As an example Insight of this session, one thing is to detect a biased algorithm which with the right methodology and approach can be done in many cases but a very different one is to fix them – which in certain cases is extremely complex.

As Head of the Datalabs, Javier oversees innovation with emphasis on development of new products and services across all business units in UK&I and EMEA. Pioneering application of artificial intelligence in mobile, voice, fraud, credit, marketing, social media, digital advertising and healthcare. He came from WPP, where he spent 7 years: two as Kantar ( WPP) Global CTO, leading the strategy of the global technology function and focusing on the new generation of market research platforms.He also spent 5 years in GroupM (WPP), as the EMEA Chief Information Officer (CIO).

Transparent and accountable AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) models can become so complex that we no longer understand how they interpret the input data and why particular decisions were reached. This leads to unintended biases and undermines the trust of both companies and customers. AI expert Evert Haasdijk explains the importance of transparent AI, and discusses methods to handle black box models.

AI- Accelerating the race to autonomous cars and transportation systems

For many years car-makers, tier1’s, mobility providers, universities and other organizations have been working on developing driver assistance systems and self-driving cars. Conventional computer vision used for ADAS is reaching its threshold because it is impossible to write code for every possible scenario as a vehicle navigates. In order to develop software for various levels of autonomy and ultimately the autonomous car, deep learning and artificial intelligence are required. With deep learning, the vehicle can be trained to have super-human levels of perception, driving safer than anyone on the road. This presentation will show what it takes to develop an end-to-end artificial intelligence platform from collecting and labelling data, to AI training, simulation and validation.

The emerging of rich customer insights from raw data to Intelligent Customer Assistants

The era of Intelligent Digital Assistants is shaping new consumer behaviours, allowing them to get things done quickly and more efficiently. IDAs are today part of the daily routine of consumers and the expectation set by them is now reflected in the interaction that consumers expect to have with companies. As organisations rethink their business models and their interaction with consumers, data is at the core of these interactions. On this talk we will explore how organisations are taking already taking advantage of their data and creating new rich customer experiences.

Afternoon Keynote: How Machine Learning & External Data is Enabling Data-Driven Corporate Decision-Making

The internet has changed the way we make decisions. However, the way executives make decisions has remained surprisingly unchanged. Every day, competitors are leaving behind online breadcrumbs filled with valuable external data – from hiring a new employee to filing a new patent, launching a new product, online ad spend, and social media. Consumers and companies are producing online content at an unprecedented rate, creating a treasure trove of consumer insights and competitive intelligence. Today, thanks to AI and machine learning, we have the ability to monitor external forces in real time. As a result, the role of a business leader looks very different than it did in the past. Drawing on practical examples of transformative, data-led decisions made by leading global brands, Peter Heurling will illustrate the future of corporate decision-making and offer a detailed plan for business leaders to implement this thinking into their company mindset and processes.
