Authenticity, Integrity, and Security in a Digital World

Project Scope:

An ad hoc committee will organize a public workshop to consider how emerging technologies are impacting the ability to assess and ensure authenticity, integrity, and security of information in the digital environment. The workshop will broadly examine the state of research and commercial applications of deep neural networks, distributed ledger technology, and quantum information systems within the context of how these emerging technologies challenge or enable an ability to establish systems of trust. It will also explore the collaboration between government, universities, and companies in the development of these emerging technologies, and the role of partnerships in investigating and protecting authenticity, integrity, and security in a digital world. A brief rapporteur-authored workshop proceedings will be published.
