Apply for the Boise State University REU Program in data-driven security by December 31

Posted by on Nov 10, 2020 in Events |

Data-driven security is an emerging interdisciplinary area that focuses on researching and applying data science and artificial intelligence methods to solve national security problems.

National security protects the country against substantial physical and psychological threats to our government; public safety; environment; or energy, food, and fiscal infrastructures. Terrorism, misinformation, and cyberattacks are common examples which are among the top 26 national security threats America is currently facing. Data-driven security is an emerging interdisciplinary area that focuses on researching and applying data science and artificial intelligence methods to solve national security problems. For instance, it deals with applying social network analysis and game theory for bad actor detection and counter-attack in crime and terrorist networks; using artificial intelligence to reduce the spread of misinformation which is responsible for manipulating opinions and public response; integrating data science and analytics into cybersecurity for meeting the cybersecurity challenges of processing large data sets in order to gain valuable insights and reduce cybersecurity risks.

By combining Computer Science and Mathematics, this proposed REU site in data-driven security will provide a unique research opportunity for undergraduate students, who will learn how to bridge the gap between theory and practice and communicate across disciplines. Successful professionals in data-driven security need to know how a model works to be able to choose the most suitable one to solve a problem.
