An ‘AI’ for an ‘AI’ – Is AI a double-edged sword for Cyber Security? | HCL Technologies

Overview

AI software has the ability to "learn" from the consequences of past events in order to help predict and identify cybersecurity threats. According to a report by Webroot, AI is used by approximately 87% of US cybersecurity professionals. However, AI may prove to be a double-edged sword as 91% of security professionals are concerned that hackers will use AI to launch even more sophisticated cyber-attacks.

AI is all the rage in cybersecurity now, but can it really replace a human expert in every case? The quality of every AI-based solution can only be as good as the data used for training and how can we validate that? And who will be responsible for decisions taken by an AI? Will an ‘AI’ for an ‘AI’ turn the whole world blind?

The Event aims to answer these questions & set the threshold for a new era in Cyber Security.
