Impact of AI on Internet security and network intelligence

Feb 21 2018

The future of AI depends on security and trust. The future AI technology could also help to address security challenges. The ISOC report on “Paths to Our Digital Future” released in 2017 highlighted this issue. As networks and traffic streams become increasingly complex, AI can help network managers to understand traffic patterns and create heuristics that identify security threats. At a basic enterprise level, AI can perform tasks normally carried out by an IT helpdesk, such as troubleshooting employee computer problems. In this way the IT professionals will get more time to implement security best practices and better secure their systems and networks.

As the AI needs large amount of computational resources and data, because of that, it is possible that the computing and storage resource need to be redistributed to meet the requirements of the technology which could also impact on the Internet architecture.
