It’s the ultimate nightmare scenario: Highly intelligent robots shake off the yoke of their human masters and rebel — often violently and with the aim of eradicating or enslaving humanity. But artificial intelligence (AI) solutions have been in development for years and the worry of a “Frankenstein’s Monster” scenario is virtually nonexistent.
The lack of murderous intent, however, doesn’t remove the risk of IT security issues born from emerging AI technologies. In fact, both intelligent machines and their software come with significant risk to line-of-business (LOB) aims. In other words, it’s time to meet Frankenstien’s children.
