IT security pros are gearing up in earnest for the newest threat to corporate security: viruses, malware and similar cybersecurity attacks turbocharged with artificial intelligence (AI). The reason: Just as AI is remaking every other part of the digital world with applications that can think for themselves and grow smarter over time, the wonder technology is also being hijacked by hackers to imbue already dangerous cyber threats with machine intelligence and creativity.
While artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly being applied on a massive scale to alter the very nature of how the world works, it turns out AI is also very good at making everyday drudgery disappear.

While the wonders of artificial intelligence (AI) are often hyped beyond recognition, AI-powered recruitment software is actually offering real advantages to businesses. Scores of firms are currently using AI-driven recruitment software to automatically crawl the web for the kind of job candidates they want, auto-interview them via text chat or video on the spot, and then auto-schedule the most promising candidates for follow-up interviews by the person who does the hiring. Other programs automatically rifle through résumés submitted at your website for candidates with the exact qualifications you want. And still others design neuroscience games your job candidates can play, which glean the people who best exhibit the traits, skills and characteristics you’re looking for.
Hackers are now arming themselves with artificial intelligence (AI) to relentlessly probe the defenses of business computers so that they can strike those networks at just the right time and just the right place, according to IT security pros.
