Our Mission

Since cyber-attacks have been intentionally generated to evade detection, the existing countermeasures cannot keep pace with the evolution and sophistication of attacks. Therefore, we aim to detect and discover such previously unknown attacks automatically at an early stage by leveraging techniques such as Natural Language Processing and Deep Learning. Besides, we also focus on creating a threat model that how an attacker abuses the latest artificial intelligence technology and then establishes several effective and efficient countermeasures for it. For example, we applied a natural language generation method based on deep learning to produce large-scale fake user reviews that are closer to human language. Also, we developed a highly accurate fake review detection model that cannot be handled by the existing methods.
