#Metro ON/AILine

In AquaCity Poprad, conference participants will learn how artificial intelligence will change the world of telco business, as well as life in buildings and cities. This year's conference will be completely different, full of new perspectives on the world around us. Traditionally, there will also be the latest technological achievements in the telco and smart-city sphere, but this time you will experience a slightly different format of the event. Leaders in the field of artificial intelligence will speak in panel discussions and blocks, where we will show real experiences of its deployment in the telecommunications industry or the smart-city sector. In the technology block you will get detailed information about how such AI works.

In order to strengthen the participants' motivation to work on their goals, we invited prominent people from the field of science.

The evening "Artificial Party" is an ideal opportunity to deepen business relations between partners, important clients and local governments. The evening will be in the traditional spirit of informal networking, full of relaxation and fun.


Support of education and motivation of young people

One of the main goals of the conference is also the support of education, motivation of young people and their active involvement in social challenges, as well as access to the ethical development of their talent and creativity. As a result, more than 200 young students will get the opportunity to participate in the conference for free and thus meet exceptional young people who have taken their destiny into their own hands. At the same time, we will financially support young talents from socially disadvantaged families, the implementation of student projects from the innovation center (f)ITcubator in Poprad, the preservation of beech forests as well as the development of ecotourism in the TOKAJ wine region.

10:10 am  Welcome speech by a special guest
10:20 am  Use of AI for early detection of anomalies in the behavior of network entities in the ISP and DC environment

Peter Vilhan; VNET a.s., Kinit

In 2019, we observed another change in the characteristics of cyber attacks. VNET a.s. as a DC and ISP service provider, it is in a unique position to detect attacks and take steps to mitigate them early. Flow was simple, in case of a saturated port or an attack reported by the client, DDoS protection was activated, provided by an external scrubbing center. With the growing number of clients, the complexity and frequency of attacks, it was necessary to minimize the time required to detect an attack in 24/7 mode. We would like to share with you our experience in the use of AI for the detection of anomalies in the behavior of network nodes, based on data obtained from the NetFlow and IPFIX protocols.

10:40 am  How should the ISP (and not only him) pass the exam for the future deployment of AI in his company and network?

Libor Bešenyi; Xolution s.r.o.

Deploying artificial intelligence makes sense for companies, at a certain technological maturity. This process has its own rules. Skipping individual steps can be unnecessarily expensive and unproductive. Frustration from the poor results of deploying edge technologies is mostly related to an inappropriately chosen strategy.

11:00 am  Hacking (with) ChatGPT

Martin Lohnert; Soitron a.s.

During this presentation, we will try to find an answer to the question of whether ChatGPT can be abused to break the security of one of the industrial systems. Since the creators prevent it in every possible way, we would first have to "break" ChatGPT's protection. Is it theoretically possible? And if so, how? And how to defend against similar threats?

11:20 am  GeoAce - Georeferenced Augmented Reality for GIS & Mapping, with an iPhone and an Emlid Reach RX RTK receiver

Ivan Tochev; Skytech

11:30 am  Panel discussion - Which ISP will dominate in 10 years?

Marek Engler; Slovanet, a.s.; Róbert Ťavoda; APKT; Peter Vilhan; VNET a.s.; Libor Bešenyi ; Xolution s.r.o.

Security of telecommunications networks, protection of your clients from cyber attacks with perfect personalized care, efficient automatic orchestration of company tasks or evaluation of client behavioral analysis for tailor-made services and higher sales. How to reconcile it all and transform yourself into a real operator of the future?

1:50 pm   Questions for the students
2:00 pm  The future of buildings and city districts that have "Phillip" in full armor!

Ján Michlík, Phillip a.s.

Modern buildings often forget the most important ones, the people who live in them. Why is digital identity, cyber security, ESG certification or overall SmartScore important? And will people ever get used to get help in better housing from artificial intelligence?
