The rise of the AI is inexorable. Artificial Intelligence has become a part of everyday lives in some form or the other. It has massive potential to drive innovations and considerable improvements in this data-driven world. From predictive analytics, chatbots, to assistant-enabled homes to self-driving cars and cybersecurity, AI is everywhere. It has become viable for almost all sectors.
Data security is now more vital than ever. Today's cybersecurity threats are incredibly smart and sophisticated. Security experts face a daily battle to identify and assess new risks, identify possible mitigation measures and decide what to do about the residual risk. This next generation of cybersecurity threats require agile and intelligent programs that can rapidly adapt to new and unforeseen attacks. AI and machine learning's ability to meet this challenge is recognised by cybersecurity experts, the majority of whom believe it is fundamental to the future of cybersecurity.
Popular visions of artificial intelligence often focus on robots and the dystopian future they will create for humanity, but to understand the true impact of AI, its skeptics and detractors should look at the future of cybersecurity. The reason is simple: If we have any hope of winning the war on cybercrime, we have no choice but to rely on AI to supplement our human skills and experience. With the number and sophistication of cybercriminals continuing to grow, the technology industry has started to address this challenge through the use of AI. As with many new technologies, however, the good that AI can do is threatened by the misconceptions and hyperbole that surround it. For this reason, the technology industry must address these popular perceptions, and that starts with redefining AI as what it truly is: augmented intelligence.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is proving to be one of the most influential and game-changing technology advancements in the business world. As more and more enterprises go digital, companies all over the globe are constantly engineering new ways to implement AI-based functions into practically every platform and software tool at their disposal. It should come as no surprise, then, that AI is affecting cybersecurity – but it's affecting it in both positive and negative ways. Cybercrime is a massively lucrative business, and one the greatest threats to every company in the world. Cybersecurity Ventures' Official 2019 Annual Cybercrime Report predicts cybercrime will cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021 – up from $3 trillion in 2015.
