Today’s digital world is continuously evolving, with new applications, programs and smart devices that allow people to make payments or purchases with the touch of a button. Inevitably, this growth leads to an exponential increase in cyberattacks, computer-based vulnerabilities and other threats.

Organizations rely heavily on cybersecurity teams to guard and secure their digital infrastructure. Most recently, there has been a technological shift to artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. These systems and algorithms are being regarded as possible solutions to current cybersecurity challenges.

To better prepare the future cyber workforce, a multidisciplinary team of three researchers from the College of Engineering & Computing is studying the effectiveness of integrating AI techniques into existing cybersecurity curricula through a $300,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) Early Concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) award.
