The University of Maryland, Baltimore, and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, will design machine learning models to overcome possible data security risks.

A new agreement between the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB), and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), will aim to leverage UMBC’s expertise in machine learning and cybersecurity to improve data security and protect medical information from cyberattacks.

Through the partnership, UMBC will provide core resources to UMB’s Institute for Clinical and Translational Research’s (ICTR) Informatics Core, adding a new Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence Core. This will enable the design of machine learning tools that can analyze large datasets, determine what additional data could be collected to potentially improve analysis, and uncover possible security risks associated with devices...
