Workshop
SARA: Secure and Resilient Autonomy
Pradip Bose · Nandhini Chandramoorthy · Augusto Vega · Karthik Swaminathan

Wed Mar 4th 09:00 AM -- 05:30 PM @ Level 1 Room 3
Event URL: http://sara-workshop.org »

This workshop will bring classical system architecture and design experts and AI/ML algorithmic experts together in one forum. The goal is to brainstorm about challenges in designing secure and resilient AI-centric systems in general, but with a special focus on autonomous systems (such as self-driving cars and industrial robots) - where safety and security are of paramount value.

The knowledge and expertise of classical mainframe and server architects who are experts in designing ultra-reliable and secure systems will be blended with domain experts in AI - particularly those with an established expertise in developing reliable and secure AI algorithms.
