What does the rise of artificial intelligence, the next generation of deep fakes, ubiquitous sensors, quantum computing, and other emerging technology mean for our collective future? How can governments, businesses, societies, and individuals equip themselves to navigate the changing landscape of cybersecurity threats? Most importantly, where are the opportunities for new digital information technologies to enhance human welfare, and how can we be proactive to help realize that potential?
Steven Weber, director of UC Berkeley’s Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity and a professor in the School of Information, and Hany Farid, professor in information science, computer science and electrical engineering, for an timely and provocative exploration of human interaction with computers and technology, and a forecast of cybersecurity in 2024 to illuminate what’s at stake today.
This presentation is part of Discover Cal, a traveling lecture series that brings UC Berkeley’s distinguished faculty to the extended Cal family for compelling lectures in an informal setting.
