CyberFest brings together prominent experts from industry, academia, and government to lead thought-provoking discussions on the latest trends and challenges in cybersecurity. Top sponsors Google, Crowdstrike, and Wiz, in addition to Stanford sponsors, are helping to make CyberFest 2023 possible. This year, our eye is on AI.

AI thinks, therefore AI am

There’s no denying it. Artificial intelligence (AI) technology has arrived and is rapidly changing how we interact with the world, bringing with it both benefits and challenges. 

In the realm of cybersecurity and privacy, AI is emerging as a powerful tool. Yes, we can harness the power of AI to enhance our capabilities to provide groundbreaking security solutions. To counter that, AI in the wrong hands has the potential to enable unprecedented cyberthreats. At CyberFest, we’ll delve into some of these “heroic” and “villainous” complexities.

You can also count on insightful and inspiring discussions about generative AI tools, frameworks, machine learning, responsible AI, and more. 

Don’t wait — register today!
