IBM’s Mary O’Brien on the AI-Driven Future of Cybersecurity (Silicon Republic)


Mary O’Brien, vp of development, IBM Security: “I think AI is going to make a huge impact in the war on cybercrime because there is a huge shortage of skilled security professionals in the world right now,” O’Brien said. “It is reckoned that there will be in the region of 1.2m unfilled cybersecurity roles by 2020. With the use of machine as the assistant to the human cybersecurity analyst, it will make it possible to keep up with the rate and pace of cybercrime.”
