Artificial Intelligence: Cisco Exec Says Stupidity Is the Real Threat

Forget Artificial Intelligence. 'Artificial Stupidity' Is the Real Threat  #ai #security

  • David Ulevitch, head of Cisco’s security business, has a problem with the hype around artificial intelligence, the field that encompasses the booming computer science discipline of machine learning.
  • “The real threat in security is not whether we have things that are too smart,” Ulevitch told Fortune in advance of his Wednesday RSA security conference keynote, during which he planned to touch on the topic.
  • For Ulevitch, one of the most compelling features for a cybersecurity product is what he calls “integration out of the box.”
  • That’s not good enough, in Ulevitch’s view.
  • For more on Cisco, watch: This preference for integrated products has been a driving factor behind Cisco’s csco security strategy, helping to explain its vast array of partnerships and frequent acquisitions, per Ulevitch.
