Objectives
THE GOAL OF THE COURSE IS TO PROVIDE THE STUDENT WITH ability to design and implement security applications based on the use of artificial intelligence techniques, attack techniques based on adversarial machine learning and related countermeasures.


KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
Biometric recognition: algorithms for the recognition of real and fake (silicone) fingerprints, recognition and verification of the authenticity of signatures, algorithms for identifying the speaker. Adversarial Machine Learning: attack techniques and defense techniques for AI recognition systems (voice, face, fingerprint, signature). Multimodal biometric techniques: biometric recognition by voice, face, fingerprint, signature. Cybersecurity applications: intrusion detection in computer networks, automatic malware detection. Intelligent video surveillance systems: detection of intrusions and anomalous behavior.

APPYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
ABILITY TO Design and implement software solutions based on artificial intelligence in the areas of cybersecurity, biometric analysis, intelligent video surveillance. Design and implement simple attack simulations to verify the degree of vulnerability of a system
Prerequisites
IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THE GOALS OF THE COURSE, THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE C AND PYTHON PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE IS REQUIRED.

Teaching Methods
THE COURSE CONTAINS THEORETICAL LECTURES, IN-CLASS EXERCITATIONS AND PRACTICAL LABORATORY exercitations. DURING THE IN-CLASS EXERCITATIONS THE STUDENTS ARE DIVIDED INTO TEAMS AND ARE ASSIGNED SOME PROJECT-WORKS TO BE DEVELOPED ALONG THE DURATION OF THE COURSE. THE PROJECTS INCLUDE ALL THE CONTENTS OF THE COURSE AND IS ESSENTIAL BOTH FOR THE ACQUISITION OF THE RELATIVE ABILITIES AND COMPETENCES, AND FOR DEVELOPING AND REINFORCING THE ABILITY TO WORK IN A TEAM. IN THE LABORATORY EXERCITATIONS THE STUDENTS IMPLEMENT THE ASSIGNED PROJECTS USING ROS.

IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE TO THE FINAL ASSESSMENT AND TO GAIN THE CREDITS
CORRESPONDING TO THE COURSE, THE STUDENT MUST HAVE ATTENDED AT LEAST 70% OF THE HOURS OF ASSISTED TEACHING ACTIVITIES.
Verification of learning
THE EXAM AIMS AT EVALUATING, AS A WHOLE: THE KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE CONCEPTS PRESENTED IN THE COURSE, THE ABILITY TO APPLY THAT KNOWLEDGE TO SOLVE PROGRAMMING PROBLEMS REQUIRING THE USE OF TECHNIQUES FOR AUTONOMOUS ROBOT NAVIGATION; INDEPENDENCE OF JUDGMENT, COMMUNICATION SKILLS AND THE ABILITY TO LEARN.

THE EXAM INCLUDES TWO STEPS: THE FIRST ONE CONSISTS IN AN ORAL EXAMINATIONS AND IN THE DISCUSSION OF MID TERM PROJECTS REALIZED DURING THE COURSES. THE SECOND STEP CONSISTS IN THE REALIZATION OF A FINAL TERM PROJECT: THE STUDENTS, PARTITIONED INTO TEAMS, ARE REQUIRED TO REALIZE A SYSTEM, FINALIZED TO A COMPETITION AMONG THE TEAMS, DESIGNING AND METHODOLOGICAL CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE STUDENTS, TOGETHER WITH THE SCORE ACHIEVED DURING THE COMPETITION, ARE CONSIDERED FOR THE EVALUATION.
THE AIM IS TO ASSESS THE ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE AND ABILITY TO UNDERSTANDING, THE ABILITY TO LEARN, THE ABILITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE, THE INDEPENDENCE OF JUDGMENT, THE ABILITY TO WORK IN A TEAM.

IN THE FINAL EVALUATION, EXPRESSED IN THIRTIETHS, THE EVALUATION OF THE INTERVIEW AND OF THE MID TERM PROJECTS WORK WILL ACCOUNT FOR 40% WHILE THE FINAL TERM PROJECT WILL ACCOUNT FOR 60%. THE CUM LAUDE MAY BE GIVEN TO STUDENTS WHO DEMONSTRATE THAT THEY CAN APPLY THE KNOWLEDGE AUTONOMOUSLY EVEN IN CONTEXTS OTHER THAN THOSE PROPOSED IN THE COURSE.
