“Federal researchers are looking to leverage quantum computing, artificial intelligence and dedicated networks to help shield electric grid networks from remote cyber attackers as well as physical exploits involving unauthorized access to infrastructure.”
“Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab are looking into a machine-learning tool that would help power companies detect and solve cyberattacks on their power distribution networks. The tool would use Google’s DeepMind AI to figure out where to install cyber-hardened operational gear.” Read the full article here.
