Artificial Intelligence technology has opened up new markets and new opportunities for progress in many critical areas such as health, education, energy, and the environment. Artificial intelligence technologies are developing apace, with many potential benefits for economies, societies, communities, and individuals. Realizing their potential requires achieving these benefits as widely as possible, as swiftly as possible, and with as smooth a transition as possible. Across sectors, AI technologies offer the promise of boosting productivity and creating new products and services. AI has important applications in cybersecurity and is expected to play an increasing role for both defensive and offensive cyber measures. Currently, designing and operating secure systems requires significant time and attention from experts. Automating this expert work partially or entirely may increase security across a much broader range of systems and applications at a dramatically lower cost, and could increase the agility of the cyber-defenses. Using artificial intelligence may help maintain the rapid response required to detect and react to the landscape of evolving threats.
