Appointment
Adjunct Lecturer in Public Policy

IGA-237M

Each year, this class addresses a new and emerging issue in cybersecurity policy.  This semester, the topic will be AI security.  Rapid advances in embedded systems, ubiquitous sensors, automatic algorithms, machine learning, autonomous systems, and artificial intelligence will affect security, safety, and privacy on all levels. As the current debates around national cyber-operations, Internet of Things regulation, machine learning, cell phone privacy, and bitcoin illustrate, current laws and policies are largely ill-equipped to handle our technological future. With the help of guest speakers, this seminar will explore selected aspects of these topics broadly: security issues that will arise in the future, and what regulatory, legislative, judicial, and market solutions can address them.
