Editorial Note: Ajit Jaokar's contribution this week hits home a point that I think it very important. As with any job, it is the value that you bring as a problem solver and someone capable of looking at obstacles as challenges rather than the base skills that you have in a given discipline, that will ultimately determine whether…Continue

In the last post, we discussed an outline of AI powered cyber attacks and their defence strategies. In this post, we will discuss a specific type of attack which is called adversarial attack.
Adversarial attacks are not…Continue
Cyberattacks are on the rise. AI is part of the threat but also part of the solution. Especially, some of the newer AI strategies (such as adversarial attacks) could be a significant new attack vector.
For example, using deepfakes, you could create highly realistic videos, audio or photos and overcome biometric security systems or infiltrate…Continue

Here is a great too for your AI research
I feel like a kid in a candy shop!
If you are like me, and want to stay on top of AI, you spend a lot of time working through research papers
However, there is no tool which can show you great new research in AI in near real time
So, it was great to find this free and open source…Continue
Here is a paper which gives a set of coding puzzles which could be useful for technical interviews in data science.
The paper introduces a new type of programming challenge called programming puzzles, as an objective and comprehensive evaluation of program synthesis, and release an open-source dataset of Python Programming Puzzles…Continue

I read a paper from ETSI last week which talks of protecting Artificial Intelligence models against threats and attacks.
This topic is of interest to me since we cover it in the artificial intelligence for cybersecurity course at the University of Oxford. Protecting AI models from threats is getting increasingly more important but is not yet…Continue

Digital Twins are increasing in usage but are often used in multiple contexts and in a simplified manner. Most references to the Digital Twin actually refer to a Digital shadow i.e. maintaining a digital copy of a physical object that is updated periodically. In a more complete sense, the Digital Twin concept relates to simulation and interaction of…Continue

How can we increase the diversity in AI talent?
This is a subject close to my heart
Despite being quite well known in AI (for our pioneering work and teaching at the #universityofoxford for #AI and #edge) and also being the Chief AI Officer of a venture funded company in Germany, I would not pass many of…Continue

Are you a leader or a laggard or an aspirant in AI?
This is a subject close to my heart because I focus my teaching / research and consulting towards the leader end or AI – where the competitive advantages create exponential gains for companies and people
There is a great article from Mc Kinsey called…Continue
Last week, I taught a cybersecurity course at the University of Oxford case. I created a case study for my class based on an excellent recent paper: Deep Learning-Based Autonomous Driving Systems: A Survey of Attacks and Defences (link below)
This paper is unique because it discussed emerging cyber security…Continue

In the last post, I discussed about augmented reality applications and their implications for AI
In this post, I will discuss virtual realty applications
I am very interested in combining AR/ VR with the Digital twin based on my work at the #universityofoxford
Both these ideas (AR+VR and also the Digital Twin) add a…Continue

Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information. AR can be defined as a system that fulfills three basic features: a combination of real and virtual worlds, real-time interaction, and accurate 3D…Continue

Last week, I saw a nice presentation on Probabilistic Programming from a student in Iran (link below).
I am interested in this subject for my teaching at the #universityofoxford. In this post, I provide a brief introduction to Probabilistic programming. Probabilistic programming is a programming paradigm designed to implement and solve…Continue

At my AI course in the University of Oxford, we are exploring the use of PyTorch for the first time.
One of the best libraries to get started with PyTorch is fast.ai.
There are various ways to learn fast.ai.
For most people, the fast.ai course is their first exposure.
There is now a book…Continue

Last week, Nokia announced 10,000 jobs lost worldwide. Telecoms is a cyclical business with the G cycles (roughly spanning seven years) ex 3G, 4G etc – driving the ups and downs in employment. However, there is more at stake here because the Telecoms industry is fundamentally changing.
