    • ChatGPT has become powerful in practical tasks in many areas such as e-business, economics, medical science, finance, science, engineering, software development, customer services, human resources management, marketing, autonomous vehicle, public relations, entertainment, military, and many more. ChatGPT is one of large language models (LLMs) and most popular now. In this talk, Prof. Jo will introduce how ChatGPT came from the Transformer algorithms and its architecture which is a basis for almost all large language models (LLM). Because LLMs appeared recently but has been rapidly spreading into our daily lives, it has faced many fatal vulnerabilities. Prof. Jo will present several vulnerabilities and security issues of LLMs.

    • Join us in this workshop to explore techniques in mobile security! We'll be focusing on Static Penetration Testing and Digital Forensics for compromised devices.

      The workshop will cover digital forensics techniques on compromised devices using cloud-based tools. It will be led by Matteo Brunati, CEO of Agorà Security.

      You'll explore mobile security with Riccardo Poffo, Mobisec's CTO and Penetration Testing Team Leader. The training will provide you with a clear understanding of static penetration testing methodologies in order to identify vulnerabilities and effectively intervene to secure mobile applications.

  • [SEMINAR] The Russian Cards Problem: Crossing Hands - September 23, 2pm CEST - Room 2AB40

    On *Thursday 23* at *2pm (CEST)*, Prof. Thomas Ågotnes, from Bergen
    University, will deliver a talk on:

    *The Russian Cards Problem: Crossing Hands*

    If interested, you're warmly invited to attend in person in *Room 2AB40*
    - Torre di Archimede.



    The Russian Cards Problem (RCP), originally introduced in the Moscow
    Mathematical Olympiad in 2000, is an example of a problem of an
    unconditionally secure protocol where the sender and receiver are able
    to transmit secret information safely over a completely non-secure
    channel with out any prior exchange of keys or any other information,
    without the secret being learned by a third party with access to the
    channel. Analysis of the RCP turns out to involve subtle implicit
    assumptions about agents knowledge and their reasoning about nested
    higher-order knowledge (knowledge about others knowledge), and modal
    epistemic logic and in particular public announcement logic, have turned
    out to be very useful in this study. In turn the RCP has informed the
    developments of these logics. In this talk I will introduce the RCP and
    epistemic and public announcement logic, and solutions to the RCP. I
    will in particular focus on a new result. It has been a long standing
    open problem whether or not there exist protocols of length strictly
    greater than two. We resently settled this problem, answering the
    question in the affirmative, by presenting a new solution to the
    original RCP that involves more than two steps. It starts with an
    initial announcement with so-called crossing hands, after which it is
    not common knowledge that the protocol can terminate in one more step.


    *Short Bio*

    Thomas Ågotnes is a Professor of Information Science and head of the
    Logic and AI research group at the Department of Information Science and
    Media Studies, University of Bergen, Norway. He is also a visiting
    Professor at the Centre for the study of Logic and Intelligence at
    Southwest University, China. His main research interests include formal
    knowledge representation and reasoning about different types of
    interaction, in particular using modal logic, often combined with other
    mathematical models of interaction for example from game theory, with
    applications in the fields of artificial intelligence and multi-agent
    systems. He has published extensively in these fields. He has been
    awarded the Changjiang (Yangtze river) Scholar award by the Chinese
    government, and best paper awards at conferences such as AAMAS and CLAR.

    Despite increased demand for valuable data, the privacy concerns associated with sensitive datasets present a barrier to data sharing. One may use generative models to generate synthetic data, but unfortunately, the synthetic data in this way may still contain sensitive information. Currently, differential privacy is the golden standard of data privacy. Thus, an alternative approach is to construct differentially private generative models that quantitatively ensure the disconnection between the sensitive data and synthetic data. In this talk, we will go through the idea of differential privacy and briefly describe the recent research progress on the development of differentially private generative models.

    Chia-Mu Yu is currently an associate professor at National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University, Taiwan. He had academic visits at IBM Thomas J. Watson research center, Harvard University, Imperial College London, University of Padova, and the University of Illinois at Chicago. He Received Hwa Tse Roger Liang Junior Chair Professor, MOST Yong Scholar Fellowship, ACM/IICM K. T. Li Young Researcher Award, Observational Research Scholarship from Pan Wen Yuan Foundation, and MOST Project for Excellent Junior Research Investigators, Taiwan. His research interests include differentially private mechanism design, cloud storage security, and IoT security.
