This, of course, is a very simplified explanation and has been fueled by science fiction books and movies. Other terms often used are machine intelligence or machine learning, which are used interchangeably. The reality is that AI is a very complex method of using a combination software and hardware to allow a type of automation or decision-making. This technology has been in development since the 1960s and has gone through many iterations. Examples of early AI have become so commonplace that we really don’t even think about it anymore. For example, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) was an early form of AI that today we think of as a common technology. We don’t even classify it as AI. Another is Speech-to-Text technology. Clearly, we have come a long way since the early years, considering we now have natural language voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa and Google’s Home Assistant that can understand your requests and even help you make decisions. In this article I will explain how AI is affecting the security field by giving advanced tools to both
the professionals who are trying to protect corporate assets and the hackers looking to profit from a breach. Both sides are trying to leverage this technology for their benefit and protection, and with advances in how AI works, it will revolutionize the way we think about security in the future.
