Artificial Intelligence (AI) is deemed to be one of the biggest technological innovations of this decade. However, like with all innovations, we must focus on fundamental applications first before we quite literally reach for the stars. AI has huge potential for wireless networks and for the people that must protect them, as well as those who try and attack them. So how will AI come into play this year and how will it shape the future?
The reality is AI can or will — at least theoretically — at some point exceed humans’ capabilities, which makes it simultaneously exciting and terrifying. As it stands, AI is far from becoming truly ‘artificially intelligent’ and has a long way to go in developing both emotional and logical intelligence beyond data analytics.
Cybercriminals are always quick to exploit the latest in technology and AI is no exception. We are already facing a cybercrime pandemic and this will worsen during 2019 as cybercriminals become more sophisticated and organised. Cybercrime is no longer the domain of lone hackers, it has become a huge business with sophisticated operating models and low barrier to entry.
