SEOUL, Feb. 20 (Korea Bizwire) — ROK Army Capt. Kwon Hyun gave a special lecture for employees at Naver Corp., South Korea’s largest portal website, on the topics of artificial intelligence (AI) bypass and its countermeasures on Monday.
Capt. Kwon, currently studying at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), was selected as ‘Naver’s outstanding researcher’ last year.
“AI’s exposure to modification of data can lead to multiple problems,” Kwon said at the company’s headquarters in Pangyo, Gyeonggi Province.
“For instance, it can make the AI installed in a self-driving car to believe that a turn left sign is actually a right turn sign, or make a voice recognition AI receive orders to send out the wrong product.”
To address such situations, Kwon suggested using a Friend-Safe Evasion Attack system to protect friendly AI while attacking the intruding AI system.
Capt. Kwon, currently a Ph.D. student focusing on AI and security, has written six papers for various international journals, and five for academic conferences worldwide.
“My goal is to develop technology that can protect friendly systems while taking over foes, which will contribute to South Korea’s national defense,” Kwon said.
