Infosecurity Europe, Europe’s number one information security event, announced its initial line-up of keynote speakers with renowned Mathematician and Broadcaster, Dr. Hannah Fry set to deliver the opening keynote at this year’s event on Tuesday 2 June (10.20-11.05am). Hannah will kick off the keynotes with a discussion on ‘The Use of Mathematical Models to Better Predict Human Behaviour’.
A prominent female speaker, Hannah is an Associate Professor in the Mathematics of Cities at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at University College London and a regular presenter of science and maths programs on BBC TV and radio. Hannah takes unusual examples of how data and models are used in everything from locating serial killers, the analysis of fertility in cows, and predicting malarial water sources.
During her presentation, Hannah will share her perspective on how data created in a digital world can be comprehended through algorithms and models to analyze complex behavior.
Her keynote speech will look at how mathematics can be applied to identify patterns and analyze human behaviors. She considers the maths of every day; how numbers and formula can explain behaviors, spotting patterns in the modern-day data deluge to find the meaning in them. Hannah will examine how data is collected, used, how reliable it is and what its limitations are.
Hannah will also address how artificial intelligence is finding new ways to use data and how it is being applied to outperform humans in delivering unbiased decision-making, and how data offers the possibility to reduce uncertainty as she does in her book Hello World: How to be Human in the Age of the Machine.
The Keynote Stage addresses how to strengthen your organization’s security posture and learn lessons from CISOs at the sharp-end and industry thought-leaders on how to tackle the latest infosec challenges. It’s the vibrant hub of the Infosecurity Europe conference program and addresses the challenges of building strong cybersecurity strategies and tactics to protect an organization’s critical information assets as the world around us transforms.
