Queen's University Belfast cyber security expert, Professor Máire O'Neill, has been appointed to the UK's Artificial Intelligence (AI) Council.
Speaking about her appointment Professor O'Neill said: "I am delighted to have been invited to join the AI council by Tabitha Goldstaub, the AI Council Chair, and Dame Wendy Hall, due to my background in cyber security.
"AI has an ever-increasing role to play in cyber security in terms of fraud prevention, threat and vulnerability analysis, and video analytics. At CSIT we have been working in these areas for some time – CSIT is celebrating 10 years of impact this year – and the application of AI in cyber security is a key focus of our future research strategy.
"I am looking forward to my role on the council and working alongside such a diverse group of representatives from industry, academia and the public sector, covering both the technology and ethical considerations of AI."
