About the Workshop

“Revolutionizing Autonomous Systems with Generative AI, and Large Language Models for Zero Trust Architecture: Enhancing Security, Resilience, and Safety of Systems Managing Edge Autonomous Devices” (GENZERO).

The Secure Systems Research Center (SSRC), an affiliate of the Technology Innovation Institute (TII) in Abu Dhabi, serves as the host for GENZERO.

This prestigious event brings together the world's leading experts, researchers, and practitioners to explore cutting-edge technologies and their potential to enhance the performance and trustworthiness of unmanned vehicles and robotic platforms.

About TII and SSRC

The Technology Innovation Institute is a pioneering research center dedicated to pushing the boundaries of knowledge and innovation in various domains, including secure systems. Our Secure System Research Center focuses on creating end-to-end (E2E) secure, resilient, and safe autonomous and autonomic systems. We are committed to fostering global collaborations and driving groundbreaking research to address critical challenges in this field.


Workshop Highlights

GENZERO workshop provides a platform for thought-provoking discussions and knowledge exchange on a wide range of topics, including:

Generative AI and Machine Learning techniques for predictive maintenance, anomaly detection, and self-healing in autonomous systems and on edge robots (UxVs)

Large language models for natural language understanding, context-aware for secure decision-making for command and control of autonomous systems

Swarm intelligence and collective decision-making for security, resilience and safety in multi-robot systems using generative AI

Secure edge computing, distributed architectures, and resource optimization for deploying generative AI models on resource-constrained robots.

Real-world applications and case studies (e.g., autonomous transportation, delivery systems) of generative AI and LLM with zero trust architecture, in various domains.

Zero Trust Platform (SoC), System and Communication architecture to support Generative AI, LLM, from Cloud to Edge continuum.



The workshop's agenda is structured over two days. On November 12th, there will be keynotes and panel discussions. On November 13th, there will be interactive sessions with poster presentations and live demos.
