Motek is one of the world’s leading expos for automation solutions in the manufacturing and plant engineering sector. For its 40th anniversary edition, visitors can expect a rich and enlightening program of conference sessions, exhibits, and networking opportunities. As the only leading trade fair committed to covering the entire process chain in industrial automation, the four days of the Motek Expo offer many interesting insights into a highly innovative and, not least, security-conscious sector.
Wibu-Systems will be represented at Motek 2022 by Dr. Carmen Kempka, Director Corporate Technology. As a member of the Security and Automation Forum and to support a prosperous future of cybersecurity and encryption technology, our expert will be looking at an increasingly urgent issue for modern machine engineers, electronics developers, and manufacturing specialists in general: “Protecting the Machine Learning Lifecycle for Responsible Use and Certifiability”. Especially in safety-critical infrastructures and technologies from large public utilities to the makers of miniaturized medical devices, the rise of AI-based systems demands a rethinking towards more holistic principles of security-by-design. The goal is to protect all phases of the AI lifecycle from the training and model development process to the live operation of AI systems in industrial environments. Dr. Kempka is looking forward to discussing what this means in practice and how existing security technologies like CodeMeter can contribute to overcoming these challenges.
