Machine Learning

Machine learning is an application of AI that enables systems to learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning focuses on developing computer programs that can access data and use it to learn for themselves.

Multimedia Forensics

Multimedia forensics has now become an integral part of the Cyber Forensics. Multimedia forensics involves the set of techniques used for the analysis of multimedia signals like audio, video, images. It aims to It aims to Reveal the history of digital content, Identifying the acquisition device that produced the data, Validating the integrity of the contents, Retrieving information from multimedia signals.

Adversarial machine learning

Is a machine learning that attempts to exploit models by taking advantage of obtainable model information and using it to create malicious attacks.

Deep Learning

Deep learning is a machine learning technique that teaches computers to do what comes naturally to humans: learn by example.


is the practice and study of techniques for secure communication in the presence of adversarial behavior, an indispensable tool for protecting information in computer systems.

Adversarial Attacks

Adversarial attacks are inputs to machine learning models that an attacker has intentionally designed to cause the model to make a mistake
