Fujitsu and Ben-Gurion University Embark on Joint Research at New Center in Israel for Precise and Secure AI
BEER-SHEVA, Israel and Tokyo, Nov 16, 2021 – (JCN Newswire) – Fujitsu Limited and BGN Technologies, the innovation transfer business of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), have actually signed a three-year extensive joint research study contract to establish innovations and options to add to the awareness of safe, real-world applications of AI and artificial intelligence innovations. The newly-established “Fujitsu Cybersecurity Center of Excellence in Israel” (Fujitsu CCoE IL) hosts a group of roughly 20 scientists consisting of Prof. Yuval Elovici and Prof. Asaf Shabtai. The laboratory is headed by Prof. Elovici, Department of Information Systems Engineering and Head of BGU’s Cyber Security Research Center situated at the Cyber@BGU laboratories in the innovative innovation park at the university’s school in Israel.
With this effort, Fujitsu and Ben-Gurion University objective to speed up joint research study and advancement into innovations that use options to hazards positioned to AI designs and artificial intelligence, enhancing the reliability and security of AI-based systems and software application that significantly affect our every day lives.
Vivek Mahajan, Chief Technology Officer of Fujitsu Limited commented, “We are thrilled to team up with Ben-Gurion University, which boasts first-rate software application advancement abilities in the security field. I’m positive that the facility of the Fujitsu CCoE IL will yield a range of appealing brand-new security innovations for AI, and I eagerly anticipate a productive collaboration with Ben-Gurion University as we operate in tandem to solve a few of the obstacles facing our progressively digitized society.”
Prof. Yuval Elovici, stated, “We are delighted to boost our partnership with Fujitsu, a world-leading info and interactions innovation business. Together we can make systems that are based upon AI more robust to attacks that concentrate on the AI part.”
” This joint tactical research study cooperation is a testimony to Ben-Gurion University’s management in the cybersecurity area,” included Josh Peleg, CEO, BGN Technologies. “The multi-year cooperation will enhance AI security and assistance produce a more secure world while enhancing the University’s placing as a worldwide gamer in the AI, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity arenas.”
Growing Opportunities, Growing Threats
AI and artificial intelligence innovations play a growing function in society, with appealing applications emerging that will progressively impact our lives, consisting of the enhancement of public security through analysis of human habits in monitoring video information, item quality assurance through the detection of irregularities, item suggestions, along with to enhancement of self-governing driving.
With the development and growth of these innovations, nevertheless, the requirement to enhance AI security represents an immediate top priority. Hostile entities utilize progressively advanced methods to threaten vital facilities and systems by taking and dripping secret information consisted of in AI datasets. Including unique sounds to video information can trigger the AI to misidentify individuals or misdetect actions. Fujitsu CCoE IL will resolve these concerns through research study on AI security to spot such attacks, safeguard versus adversarial access to AI systems, and to make the designs more robust versus attacks.
As part of their brand-new collaboration, Fujitsu and BGU will concentrate on research study that challenges these risks to make AI innovations more secure and more credible. For among the Center’s preliminary research study jobs, scientists from Fujitsu and Ben-Gurion University will use an AI design (Out of Distribution detection design (1 )) that can identify brand-new, unidentified kinds of dangers, such as attacks on drones and scams in network interactions and establish innovations able to properly handle the quickly progressing attack approaches. The Out of Distribution detection design will furthermore be used to discover item breakdowns in cases where unanticipated information appears deliberately or accidently.
Outline of the Joint Research
1. Length of agreement: Three years
2. Functions and obligations:
Development of security innovations for AI-based systems and software application
Examination of circumstances for innovation confirmation
Support for confirmation and assessment
Development of security innovations for AI-based systems and software application
