TITLE OF ABSTRACT – Applying DOD Security Principles to Generative AI

DESCRIPTION - “Don't believe everything you read on the internet" is a common saying, and yet in low stakes situations we've come to trust a quick web search or even an interaction with ChatGPT. It knows so much about the world! Using generative AI for mission critical knowledge retrieval has an all new set of challenges. In this talk you'll learn concepts and considerations for AI in the terminology DOD Information security. We'll cover: 

  • What is a Large Language Model? 
  • How private is a private LLM?
  • Security concerns of Training vs. Prompting
