The steady rise of intelligence and autonomy over a scale of distributed, connected and smart components is heralding the era of Internet-of-Intelligence. Without adequate safeguards in place, such components can lead to terrible consequences. In this talk, I will discuss three aspects - namely, vulnerability, security and privacy of such edge–computing scenarios. The vulnerability aspect will show how a simple setup can derail sophisticated unmanned aerial vehicles. The security angle will be discussed through a novel countermeasure, which, via extremely fine-grained profiling and machine learning techniques is able to thwart the latest ransomware attacks. Lastly, the privacy perspective will be presented through an innovative compression technique, realised on top of a video/image processing platform.
