Roman Dremlyuga, a young researcher at Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU), will take part in a global research project on cybersecurity. Google and the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) are launching an international study and preparation of a monograph on the democratization of artificial intelligence and confidence in technologies. Authors from 13 leading universities of the Asia-Pacific region will present the results of their work at one of the next APEC forums.

“Our research will be devoted to the impact of the latest technologies on society, law, politics, and economy—the entire humanitarian sphere of public and private life,” explained Roman Dremlyuga, the Deputy Director for Development, FEFU School of Law. “There are now cybersystems available that can identify the most diverse human preferences, capable of 'reading' us over the Internet by more than 90 percent. It threatens to interfere with privacy and to violate human rights, and also entails many consequences that need to be understood and predicted.”

Google and APRU plan to publish a monograph on cybersecurity by 2019. The young FEFU scholar plans to become the author of three sections: on the legal and ethical issues of the recognition of the individual and personal information in social networks using artificial intelligence, on the criminal use of artificial intelligence, as well as on the prevention of crime using artificial intelligence systems.

“The issue of cybersecurity in the legal aspect is the most relevant at the present time. Technologies are developing very quickly, and for one to speak about them, she/he must think in terms of the future. Collaboration of leading universities can provide a valuable result,” said the researcher.

The study will also be attended by representatives of the Singapore National University, Japanese University of Technology and other participating universities in the APRU. The authors' first working meeting will be held at Keio University (Japan) on December 1.

Roman Dremlyuga is a graduate of Far Eastern National University in Applied Mathematics (2003). He defended his PhD thesis on Internet crime law in 2007. Currently he has more than 40 research publications, including nine ones in Scopus and Web of Science editions.
