  • Artificial Intelligence replacing us ?

    Hello everyone what are your thoughts on some people out there claiming that artificial intelligence will take over and replace ethical hackers in the near future. What is the reality of this actually happening i know there are some programs out there that scan sites 24/7 for bugs and other issues. But replacing us as a whole how realistic is that happening or is it far fetched due to inflated egos of machine learning scientist. In my work in data science we are still a long way from AI taking over but again what your thoughts on this should we as ethical hackers be worried ?

    My take on it is that the viewpoint that AI will replace the need for ethical hackers completely is exaggerated and unrealistic. While there definitely are lots of jobs that will be displaced by AI over the coming years, many jobs will end up being enhanced by AI, not necessarily replaced.

    It’s kind of like when automated scanning tools were first coming out. A lot of people selling those tools were promising that they would replace the need for manual intervention. That’s never been the case and I don’t think it ever will be. They do help find certain things that humans would take far longer to find, and they help fix low-hanging fruit. But you still need people to go in and do their thing.

    So yes, I do think AI will greatly enhance certain areas of our field, but I don’t think it will replace the need for human ethical hackers — definitely not in the near future.
