A researcher advised lawmakers to "keep calm and avoid overhyping China's AI capabilities" since the authoritarian regime struggles to drive widespread adoption of new technology. He urged Congress to embrace an "open system of innovation" around AI even it that results in some IP leaking to China.
The rise of artificial intelligence makes it easier for adversaries to harm the U.S. and introduces new risks around malicious insiders with loyalties to China, experts say during a Senate hearing. Generative AI can help less technically sophisticated threat actors carry out complex cyberattacks.
Spain is set to launch Europe's first-ever artificial intelligence regulatory agency as the trading bloc finalizes legislation meant to mitigate risks and ban AI applications considered too risky. Madrid said its goal is to foster AI that is "inclusive, sustainable, and centered on citizens."
Hackers wielding generative artificial intelligence tools have yet to pose a serious cybersecurity risk, say researchers at Google's threat intelligence group Mandiant, as they sound the alarm instead about a rise in information operations featuring AI-generated fake images and video.
Generative AI has revolutionized the way people interact with chatbots. Ruby Zefo, chief privacy officer and ACG for privacy and cybersecurity at Uber Technologies, cited ChatGPT as an example of the need to conduct an "environmental scan" of both external and internal risks associated with it.
The cat-and-mouse game between cybercriminals and security solutions providers just escalated to the next level. With AI and machine learning being the new staple for enterprise applications, both cybercriminals and security researchers are exploring ways to leverage these technologies.
Technologists were quick to point out that popular AI-based chatbot, ChatGPT, could lower the bar for attackers in phishing campaigns and even write malware code, but Cato Networks' Etay Maor advises taking these predictions "with a grain of salt" and explores the pros and cons of ChatGPT.
