AI is fundamentally transforming every element of cyber defense -- detecting threats that had previously gone unnoticed, streamlining investigations, and even autonomously responding to stop attacks within seconds. But as companies around the world adopt AI for cyber defense, attackers and cyber-criminals also look to AI to advance their attacks.

Bob Tapscott, Strategy Consultant and CIO, The Tapscott Group

We stand on the precipice of what Davos in 2016 coined as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, a pending disruption that will soon transform how we live, work, and play. This tsunami of dramatic change will be more profound in its scope and faster in pace than anything like it in history. Unlike other Industrial Revolutions, it will, during the next short decade, have a far greater impact, than any of the previous three industrial revolutions each of which more slowly made its mark over centuries.

Driven by Artificial Intelligence, the Blockchain, Robotics, and the Internet of Things, your response to this change, as a corporation, or as an individual need to be insightful and predictive. For companies, it also needs to be well architected, integrated and comprehensive.
