How to ensure 5G network security with AI
“The fifth generation of mobile network, or what we commonly call 5G, has the potential to support millions of user devices with fast user mobility and interconnection”, said Azadeh Tabiban, assistant professor at UM Faculty of Science, Department of Computer Science. She continued, “On the other hand, if you want to have all these great, awesome benefits, it means that we may require to adopt some technologies in a way that is different from how we used to in prior mobile networks.”
Tabiban is one of the collaborators in a new research project to make 5G networks more secure using Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions along with researchers from the University of Waterloo, Concordia University and Ericsson Canada. This initiative is part of the Government of Canada’s new Cyber Security Innovation Network with funding support from the National Cybersecurity Consortium (NCC) and Ericsson.
Following the press release from Ericsson Canada, we sat down with her to dive deeper into her experience with this collaboration and her vision for the future.
