Machine learning, IoT security and privacy, and security education are just a few of a variety of hot topics that will be discussed this week at the 15th annual CyLab Corporate Partners Conference, held on campus October 3-5.
"These partnerships allow us to overcome the classic problem of researchers finding breakthroughs but rarely reaching deployment," says professor Doug Sicker, interim director of CyLab. "We believe it's important that researchers have opportunities to consider the industry view."
Over the course of an exclusive multi-day program, CyLab's corporate partners convene at Carnegie Mellon's Pittsburgh campus to meet with and learn from CyLab faculty, staff, and students about the latest research breakthroughs and on-going projects.
"One very exciting addition this year is a session introducing initiatives, centers and collaborations on IoT, Cyber Autonomy, Blockchain, Manufacturing security and privacy research," says Michael Lisanti, CyLab's Director of Partnerships. "Industry partners engage with our distinguished faculty through these initiatives, creating a larger set of researchers solving a bigger problem than any one company could do alone."
