Help us spreading the news
The best talks are those with an interested diverse audience! Therefore, please use the following media to spread the news in your networks:
Generative AI has emerged as a disruptive technology with the potential to create content indistinguishable from that produced by humans. While this presents numerous opportunities for innovation and creativity, it also poses significant cybersecurity and ethical risks, particularly the spread of misinformation. This talk will explore the challenges associated with generative AI, including its role in the creation and spread of deepfakes, its potential to exacerbate the fake news phenomenon, and its implications for privacy and security. We will also discuss strategies to mitigate these risks, such as the development of detection algorithms, the establishment of ethical guidelines for AI development, and the importance of digital literacy and critical thinking skills for the public.

The Cyber CNI Lecture Series is a free monthly event that typically takes place on the last Wednesday of the month from 2pm to 3h30pm CET.
The standard event consists of a 45-minute expert presentation followed by a 45-minute discussion. The special fireside talks emphasize more the discussion and only have a short impulse presentation at the beginning.
The Cyber CNI Speaker series aims to raise awareness and understanding of cyber security issues among all audiences. It aims to enable an ongoing dialogue between experts from industry and academia and the general public (citizens, families, small and large businesses, public organizations, etc.). All of us are concerned.
The events are broadcast live on Youtube (https://talk.cybercni.fr/) and LinkedIn, allowing worldwide remote participation – including a tool to participate in the discussion.
How the digital transformation is changing our lives
The COVID-19 pandemic has shown all of us the benefits of information technology. It allows us to work at a distance, to live at a distance, and most importantly, to keep in touch at a distance – with younger and older people, those closest to us, and even make new contacts.
Our society relies more and more on information and operational technologies. Examples include water, energy, heat and cooling supply, communications, healthcare, production and processing of goods, transportation, national security, banking, research and education, and food production.
What all these areas have in common is that they make intensive use of networked distributed computer systems. These systems can be attacked in many ways. This is no longer just a problem for computer “pros” because computer systems are essential to all of us. The effects of “cyber-attacks” range from power outages to the collapse of the health care or banking sectors.
