Professor Nick Jennings CB FREng Vice Provost (Research) Head of Research Strategy at Imperial College London, Chair of Artificial Intelligence and previous Government advisor 

Cyber security is central to ensuring society can function effectively and make the most of digital technologies. However, keeping computer systems safe and secure is a major challenge, as evidenced by the almost daily stories of information breaches and cyber-attacks. Moreover, the situation will become ever more challenging as ever more devices on our bodies, in our home, at our work and embedded in our national infrastructure are networked.

Professor Jennings is an internationally-recognised authority in the areas of artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, cybersecurity and agent-based computing. His research covers both the science and the engineering of intelligent systems. He has undertaken fundamental research on automated bargaining, mechanism design, trust and reputation, coalition formation, human-agent collectives and crowd sourcing.

He has also pioneered the application of multi-agent technology; developing real-world systems in domains such as business process management, smart energy systems, sensor networks, disaster response, telecommunications, citizen science and defence.

Come and hear from Prof Jennings, the previous UK Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor for National Security and head of one of the UK’s Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Research.
