Industry experts in the technology sector makes their prediction for 2024 in the AI sector along with warnings on the present condition of cybersecurity.
- Cybersecurity Concerns Directly Linked To Increased Development In AI
The AI wave will continue in 2024 and years to come as major tech companies are developing and launching more and more AI products. Debates on the AI technology impact on humans and the advantages and disadvantages of AI have been going on since the beginning of this decade but now the ethics of AI is also being discussed.
The co-founder of Antavo, which a loyalty-based cloud platform Zsuzsa Kecsmar says that “ opportunities will open up for those who can harness and amplify AI’s potential.” He adds, “Data usage and privacy compliance are just two examples of the cross section between AI and security and businesses will need to ensure that they are using the power of AI responsibly so as to not fall foul of breaches.”
According to Suha Can, who is the Chief Information Security Officer of Grammarly generative AI tools such as Bard or ChatGPT can do more harm that good when its mismanaged.
- Companies Would Put Forward AI Policies In Workplace To Regularize Its Use
Everyone is using AI tools and software to check if Artificial Intelligence can make their work better and easier. While everyone is trying AI, on the other hand, companies are also using AI to see how it helps in their business advancement. Soon the businesses heads would realize this AI use and that there needs to be an AI policies in the workplace that can regulate AI use.
Matt Rosenberg, Head and Chief Revenue Officer of Grammarly, says, “Nearly 8 in 10 C-suite leaders say their companies are using AI, but most workers don’t know how they’re doing so. Meanwhile, employees are outpacing their employers by bringing their own AI tools to work; 80% of those using gen AI at work say their companies haven’t yet adopted it. All of this will come to a head, forcing companies to reconcile approaches and tools. Those who built a coordinated strategy from the start will have a major leg up—while those who failed to align their employees are headed for a costly mess they’ll spend months unraveling.”

Yes, AI will help make work faster or make detecting illness easier but as there are more advancements in AI, there will be increased use of AI in the world. With AI’s popularity, security risks increase exponentially and more cybersecurity breaches will be seen.
Raymond Tembo from Comrax which is a digital transformation agency has argued that AI will help solve security concerns that will result from AI usage.
He says, “In 2024, we’ll witness a paradigm shift in how AI interfaces with cybersecurity. Traditional approaches focus on defense, but the surprising trend will be a proactive use of AI as a predictive ally. Cybersecurity will evolve from a reactive stance to anticipatory, leveraging AI’s ability to foresee potential threats and vulnerabilities. This counter-intuitive shift will redefine our digital defense strategies, emphasizing prevention over recovery.”
