Hear no Evil see no Evil; How an AI system was developed that could disguise itself as a human and deceive people. How did this work, what could it achieve? In this session David Edwards will give a beginner friendly, technical introduction to how an AI Vishing system was developed, exploring natural language real-time conversation and automated implementation of social engineering attacks, with demonstrations so you can see how it performs.
