Is artificial intelligence a threat? Experts weigh the risks
July 02, 2015
As several tech luminaries express worries about the future of AI, researchers met at a D.C. think tank to discuss whether advances could pose a threat.
David Stegon was a staff reporter for FedScoop and StateScoop from 2011-2014.
McAfee Co-President Michael DeCesare said he expects there to be 15 billion devices attached to the global network by 2015, creating ever-increasing risks for organizations that relay heavily on keeping information safe and secure, especially those in government.
DeCesare opened the 2012 McAfee Public Sector Summit, presented by FedScoop, on Wednesday at the Pentagon City Ritz-Carlton. DeCesare said the company will not sit still as the threat landscape changes.
"We are partners in this fight," DeCesare said. "We understand the challenges you are going through and will be right here with you."
