More detailed information

ChatGPT is the buzzword of the past year. Suddenly everyone mentions and everything uses ChatGPT (or so they say). But there is much more to say about AI (Artificial Intelligence). What are the advantages of AI? Are there any disadvantages? Artificial intelligence is maybe offering hackers new sophisticated ways to intrude your systems. However It also allows cybersecurity software to detect suspicious behaviour much sooner. Has cybersecurity entered into a new league with AI?

Even more questions will pop up and answered:

  • Will AI fail in ways we do not understand?

  • Will AI models set their own goals?

  • Will AI be able to build better AI models, that people no longer control?

  • What will be more evil: malicious AI or people using AI in an criminal way?

  • What is the greatest threat for AI?

  • And what about your job?

4 decades of security, IT and AI experience bundled in a pragmatic and passionate view about the real dangers and advantages of AI.
