The panel – Kevin Dwyer, VP of Engineering at Black Cape; Maj. Ian Garrett, U.S. Army Reserve and CEO/co-founder of Phalanx; and Dr. Ravi Starzl, Adjunct Professor at Carnegie Mellon University, hosted by 1st Lt. Adrian Naaktegeboren, U.S. Army Cyber Protection Brigade – explored topics including the current state of these tools, their current and potential uses supporting cybersecurity applications and U.S. government cyberspace operations, limitations and security flaws of these systems including prompt injection, and the potential consequences of this technology for the world's larger information environment.
