KUWAIT CITY, Feb 14: Under the patronage of the acting Director of Kuwait University Dr Mishari Al-Harbi, and in the presence of the acting Secretary General of the university Dr Fayez Al-Dhafiri, and several faculty members and students, the Educational Technology Division in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching Methods at the College of Education organized an awareness lecture entitled, “Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence”, reports Al-Anba daily. During the lecture, acting Secretary General of the university Dr Fayez Al-Dhafiri said: “We are in a rapidly changing society, so we seek not just globalization today. The culture, interests, and interaction of young people through electronic games and the available means of communication have become common. The world has become dynamic and we must not ignore this as educators, scholars, researchers, and Science students, especially those in the College of Education.”

Al-Dhafiri stressed the importance of preparing the global teacher, just as it is preparing the global student who has common values and concepts that depend on mutual respect for differences. He pointed out that artificial intelligence and cybersecurity have become a burden on some and not a common understanding among the parties, as everyone who disagreed with the other was cyber-attacked or used social media negatively; hence, the need to hold a symposium on the proper use of cybersecurity and artificial intelligence. “If we seek positive change, we must take the initiative to bring about this change through awareness of the concepts of cybersecurity and artificial intelligence. We have to focus on the digital transformation model relying on four basic pillars: awareness, acceptance, readiness, and alignment,” he explained.

On the other hand, Dr Walid Al-Anazi stated that cybersecurity and artificial intelligence will shape the future of scientific research and education in general, especially in the College of Education, which must be invested in pedagogically. He added: “There are many fears surrounding cybersecurity and artificial intelligence like any new development. Does it threaten the presence of teachers in schools and universities, as well as the administrative work in State institutions? Can a student resort to such technological practices as a negative investment that leads to unfairness in terms of competition between him and his classmates? All these questions must be discussed.”
