AI Is the Future of Cybersecurity, for Better and for Worse

In the near future, as artificial intelligence (AI) systems become more capable, we will begin to see more automated and increasingly sophisticated social engineering attacks. The rise of AI-enabled cyberattacks is expected to cause an explosion of network penetrations, personal data thefts, and an epidemic-level spread of intelligent computer viruses. Ironically, our best hope to defend against AI-enabled hacking is by using AI. But this is very likely to lead to an AI arms race, the consequences of which may be very troubling in the long term, especially as big government actors join the cyber wars.

Big Data analytics in Europe – the reports of its death are greatly exaggerated

Some say that new EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is not fit for modern age of Big Data, artificial intelligence (“AI”) and machine learning. They assume that GDPR rules will kill Big Data in Europe.

While it is correct that GDPR will “level up” requirements, it won’t kill Big Data, AI or machine learning or make it illegal. GDPR will require business to about what they’re doing with data but will not prohibit from processing it.

Beyond concerns about AI, consumers see usefulness — particularly in cybersecurity, privacy

Almost two-thirds of American consumers welcome advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning, and cybersecurity is among the areas where assistance from AI has the most appeal, according to a new survey.

Sixty-three percent of consumers agree AI will “help solve complex problems that plague modern societies,” according to the survey, published Tuesday by the accounting and consulting firm PwC. When respondents were asked about different kinds of issues that AI might help with, 68 percent highlighted cybersecurity and privacy, while 66 percent chose its importance in helping to solve cancer and other diseases and 71 percent agreed AI could provide educational help to disadvantaged schoolchildren.
