Cybersecurity - A Game Theory Approach: Issues, modelling and computer science applications

Prof. Dr. Sardar M. N. Islam (Naz)
ISILC, & Decision Sciences and Modelling Program, Victoria University, Australia

Abstract: Cybersecurity is a multiagent system where intelligent agents interact, formulate strategies, fight, cooperate, coordinate, design systems, and plan actions to achieve their goals of cybersecurity or hacking and malicious damages. Game theory analyses and formulates strategies and designs rules or mechanisms for this cybersecurity multiagent system on the basis of artificial intelligence. For specifying, characterising and modelling and designing this intelligent multiagent system, mathematical game theory models of different forms can be developed, such as static, dynamic, evolutionary, differential and stochastic game theory models. Different algorithms such as Nash equilibrium, joint optimisation, evolutionary algorithms, neural networks, genetic algorithms, and other machine learning algorithms can be applied to different game theory models for analysing, solving, and computing these cybersecurity models. Findings from these models are used to formulate strategies, cooperate, coordinate, design systems, and plan actions by different intelligent agents and authorities in cybersecurity. Game theory application in cybersecurity is an important area in computer science for doing highly useful academic and practical cybersecurity activities and for academics and practitioners to build their careers. Therefore, it is necessary to prioritise this area of game theory in cybersecurity in computer science for research and development.

Intelligence Extenics: Five Layer-Intelligence of the Machine Brain

Dr. Wenfeng Wang
School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Shanghai Institute of Technology, China

Abstract: In the past decades, machine intelligence has been rapidly developed. The current machine intelligence level can be summarized as “five layer intelligence” - environments sensing, active learning, cognitive computing, intelligent decision making and automatic execution. The final goal is a real intelligence (termed as the machine brain) which would support machines to work as well as the human. Five layer intelligence is not the real intelligence, but it presents a frame of intelligence extenics and it is already on the way to the machine brain.

Gray Box: Deep Reinforcement Learning-enabled Approach for Large-Scale Dynamic System Simulation

Dr. Yang Yang, IEEE Fellow
ShanghaiTech University, China

Abstract(CN): The massive data generated by large-scale dynamic systems makes its optimization facing a big challenge. Traditional White Box-based methods directly model the internal operating mechanism of the system, so massive amounts of measured data need to be handled, which is costly and time-consuming. The poor interpretability of the Black Box-based methods makes it difficult to adapt to the dynamic environments. In this talk, we propose a novel Gray Box-based approach namely Deep Reinforcement Learning-enabled Constraint Set Inversion Algorithm (DRESIA), which establishes a quantitative model of the nonlinear interoperability effects of system internal states which simplifies the White Box's complex mechanism of reconstruction and prediction and retains the interpretability of the model, therefore improves the prediction efficiency of feasible region while also improving the generalization ability.

Robots and Deep Bayesian Learning: Robots capable of self-healing and adapting

Dr. Andre Rosendo
ShanghaiTech University, China

Abstract(EN):Abstract: Although current artificial intelligence (AI) explores learning techniques to create thinking machines through simulations, I argue that the interaction with the real-world is essential for the convergence in true intelligence. With this in mind, I present the Deep Bayesian Learning framework applied to robots, either by a robot capable of creating other robots and improving their performance over time, or, more recently, by our latest experiments incrementally cutting one of the legs of a robot and using Bayesian Optimization to adapt the gait of that robot. I will talk about robots capable of combining Deep Learning and Bayesian Learning to simultaneously alter their morphology and control. The future of robotics remains uncertain, but the capacity of adapting their design and altering their morphology to fulfil tasks more effectively can be a driving force for future Robotics.

Speeding Up IPv4 Connections via IPv6 Infrastructure

Prof. Dr. Xin Wang
School of Computer Science, Fudan University, Shanghai, China

Abstract: In the transition process from IPv4 to IPv6, the lack of customer demand remains a major problem for Internet Service Providers. With the increasing traffic in IPv4 networks, the ISPs' operational cost is growing while the user experience will be degraded. We propose a solution for these problems by transferring IPv4 traffic through the IPv6 core network. By providing better services for IPv4 end users, such as stabler connections, lower latency and better QoS, our solution can serve as an incentive for ISPs to gradually upgrade to pure IPv6 networks. In this demo, we showcase that better service quality for IPv4 end-to-end connections can be acquired by transferring traffic from heavy-loaded IPv4 core network to light-loaded IPv6 core network, using stateless IPv4/IPv6 translation techniques.
