The research paper suggested evaluating the security of artificial intelligence models in the early stages of design and development, which includes more monitoring and security audit procedures to provide safe training and operation time for artificial intelligence systems, in addition to other proposals, through which STC and Huawei committed to share their experiences and information about artificial intelligence. To provide a safe environment for artificial intelligence applications and contribute to building a smart world through this technology. And to address the security challenges of artificial intelligence, with the presence of policy makers and regulators, as well as leaders of the ICT sector in the region, for the conference.
Yasser Al-Suwailem, Vice President of Cyber Security Sector, said: “We believe that ensuring the security of AI platforms is based on the efforts of the ecosystem and the cooperation of many parties to enhance the AI platform and reduce the prevailing attacks that are becoming more and more complex with the passage of days, and this cooperation between STC Group and Huawei It reflects our commitment to forging partnerships in the ICT sector to build an integrated and secure system to respond to emerging security challenges.”
For his part, Ibrahim Al-Shamrani, Chief Cyber Security and Privacy Protection Officer at Huawei Tech Investment Saudi Arabia Ltd. said: “There is no doubt that artificial intelligence will impact our society in unprecedented ways. However, cybersecurity is one of the challenges that may hinder the development of intelligence platforms. From here, we must ensure that we build a security system designed specifically to develop these systems and come up with an effective way to bridge the gaps that cyber attackers can exploit. We are pleased to work together to contribute to promoting a safer digital transformation in the region.”
With the growth of big data and the advancements we are witnessing and continuous innovation in machine learning, artificial intelligence technologies such as image recognition, voice recognition and natural language processing are becoming more prevalent than ever. At the same time, AI by attackers poses a major threat to cybersecurity, but it can also be used to build defensive systems such as detecting malware and attacks on networks, and thus, building AI systems that are immune to external threats is critical.
