Defending the Grid for Fun and Non-Profit: Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Resilience Research at LLNL

Feb 13, 2019


The power grid is in the midst of transforming from a model of
centralized generation and one-way power flows to one with distributed
generation. In this talk, I will describe some of the challenges
presented by the coming smart grid, and research projects at LLNL
using collaborative autonomy, a form of machine learning, aimed at
overcoming those challenges. I will also briefly discuss the broader
Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Resilience program at LLNL.
