A roboticists' approach to cybersecurity.
Alias Robotics' mission is to contribute building a robot ecosystem where these machines operate securely and without presenting vulnerabilities that could be exploited by third parties.
Robotics is called to be the next industrial revolution however, similarly to what happened with the computer industry over the last few decades, security is being underestimated. Here are a few examples:
- Robotic surgery has been linked to 144 deaths
- A robot security guard knocked down a toddler
- Robot 'goes rogue and kills woman on Michigan car parts production line'
Security, privacy and safety in robotic systems should clearly be recognized as one of the major issues. From assistive and entertainment robots used in our homes (consumer robots), to those used on assembly lines (industrial robots), all the way to those used in medical facilities (professional/service robots).
Cybersecurity for robots is an inter-disciplinary effort, involving roboticists, as well as computer security experts. Our team comprises talented roboticsts, machine learning and security researchers with passion for cyberphysical systems. We focus on cybersecurity for robots using our expertise in building robotics systems while applying new techniques and approaches that make use of the latest artificial intelligence tools.
