Panda to gibbon is the least of your worries: why securing AI is not what you think

There's a lot of talk about AI at the moment. A LOT.

Machine Learning
Application Security

Sarah has been leading Microsoft's internal efforts to create AI security best practices and - in this talk - will share aspects of the journey to do this, a history of AI attacks and what the best practices are to keep an AI implementation secure (spoiler: there's no secret sauce) and how you should be thinking about this in your organisation, no matter what cloud or AI platform you're using.

Sarah Young

Once described on Reddit as “technically challenged”, Sarah is a Senior Cloud Security Advocate working at Microsoft. She has lived all over the place but currently calls Melbourne home.

Sarah has been working in cyber security since before it was cool, has previously spoken at many security conferences including Black Hat and has co-authored a few Microsoft Press technical books. She is an active supporter of security communities across the globe and a co-host of the Microsoft Azure Security Podcast.

Sarah spends most of her spare time gaming, eating hipster brunches and high teas and spending a disproportionate amount of her income on her dogs.
