Artificial intelligence (AI) and IT security are two of the most pressing issues confronting our digital society right now.
This coming Wednesday, March 29th, 2023, the DAAD Nairobi will hold its first dinner talk in 2023 on the very timely and exciting topic of "Security and Artificial Intelligence."
This talk will give an overview of both, starting with an explanation of the basic questions that IT security seeks to answer. From there, we'll use ChatGPT as an example to look at recent advances in artificial intelligence and what they mean for IT security.
Interested? Please confirm your attendance by March 27, 2023, by signing up at https://bit.ly/42buUK6. We'll then send you an invitation. There are only a few spots left!
This time around, there will be an option of attending the talk online, right here on Facebook, so you could directly register for the online version!
See you next week! #security#artificialintelligence#ChatGPT#ITsecurity
