NAIC-ISAO Task Force

NAIC Research Working Group



The NAIC Research Working Group brings together AI and Cybersecurity researchers to safeguard the United States and its allies and to jointly advance AI and Cybersecurity technology. We connect experts, gather information, share knowledge, and build solutions to create a safer, smarter world.
The working group initiates outreach to prospective NAIC-ISAO members to engage them in research activities and promotes research outcomes to the benefit of all member societies.




The Research Working Group seeks to build a team of leading academics and researchers (including post-grad candidates) from top universities and research-oriented institutions, specializing in the fields of AI and Cybersecurity.

The group will use both short term and long term goals to identify and define projects to focus efforts on.  For each goal, the group should develop specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART) objectives, along with clear action plans, timelines, and success indicators.   Regular reviews and adjustments should be made to ensure the continuous relevance and effectiveness of the group’s activities and contributions.
