Part of Discover Cal, organized by Berkeley University Development and Alumni Relations.
What does the rise of artificial intelligence, the next generation of deep fakes, ubiquitous sensors, quantum computing, and other emerging technology mean for our collective future? How can governments, businesses, societies, and individuals equip themselves to navigate the changing landscape of cybersecurity threats? Most importantly, where are the opportunities for new digital information technologies to enhance human welfare, and how can we be proactive to help realize that potential?
Join Steven Weber, director of UC Berkeley’s Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity and a professor in the School of Information, and Amit Elazari, director of global cybersecurity at Intel and lecturer at Berkeley’s School of Information, for a timely and provocative exploration of human interaction with computers and technology, and a forecast of cybersecurity in 2024 to illuminate what’s at stake today.
