Colloquium – Proffessor Delaram Kahrobaei, University of York

Title: Interactions between Group Theory, Cyber Security, Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computation


In this talk, I explore how group theory plays a crucial role in data science and artificial intelligence as well as cyber security and quantum computation; at the same time, computer science and machine learning could help group theorists tackle some of their open problems. A second theme of the talk will be to formulate graph theoretic problems associated with computational complexity as group theoretic questions pertaining to graph groups. Lastly, we will look at the question of whether certain group-based cryptographic schemes are quantum-safe.
