Title: Practical applications of trustworthy AI in security: detection of cyberattacks and fake news

Abstract: AI solutions are widely used in a plethora of applications, including in the security domain. However, in order to be fully adopted and accepted by societies, those solutions need to fulfill the requirements of trustworthy AI. In this talk, practical examples of trustworthy AI solutions in security will be presented and discussed: cybersecurity and fake news detection. The talk will not only emphasize effective results, security and privacy but also the deployed explainability (xAI) mechanisms and software will be shown. The results of selected EU and national projects will be demonstrated (e.g. AI4Cyber, STARLIGHT, APPRAISE and SWAROG).
