Interviews

Infosec futures

Kevin Warwick, Emeritus Professor at Reading and Coventry Universities, gave the closing speech at the annual Infosecurity Europe show yesterday. He covered Artificial Intelligence, Implants, and Future Security Issues, at the London Olympia event, pictured, and looked at implant technology, in terms of new forms of identification, and in bringing humans and technology together, particularly with regard to the security issues this presents.

Kevin Warwick said: “Artificial Intelligence will help to raise cyber security levels but it will also be a tool for hackers to break the security down. As humans and technology get closer and closer, as brains become linked directly to networks so security will become absolutely vital.”
