RAI 2021

2021 IEEE CSR Workshop on Resilient Artificial Intelligence (RAI)

Advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology have opened up new markets and opportunities for progress in critical areas such as systems and network resiliency, health, education, energy, economic inclusion, social welfare. AI is expected to play an increasing role in defensive and offensive measures to provide a rapid response to react to the landscape of evolving threats.

Traditionally, cyber-physical systems (CPS) security has focused on the detection of attacks in CPS and has been investigated from the perspective of preventing intruders from gaining access to the system using cryptography and other access control techniques. However, in a world of increasing adversaries, it is becoming more difficult to totally prevent CPS from adversarial attacks, hence the need to focus on making CPS resilient.

Resilient CPS is designed to withstand disruptions and remain functional despite the operation of adversaries. One of the dominant methodologies explored for building resilient CPS is dependent on machine learning (ML) algorithms. However, rising from recent research in adversarial ML, requires that ML algorithms for securing CPS must themselves be resilient.

Resilient Artificial Intelligence workshop aims to collect the most recent research trends, advances, and promising future research directions from the international research community in order to take a comprehensive stock on Artificial Intelligence-driven security and resilience approaches, of the interactions among resilient CPS using ML, DL, and resilient AI-based approaches applied in CPS, the recent advances on securing AI for CPS and countermeasures, as well as research trends in this active area, also including the exploration of Adversarial Resilience Learning, as one of the most challenging issue recently investigated by several cyber-security communities.
