Episode 56: Cybersecurity Risks and Rewards of LLMs

In episode 56 of Cybersecurity Where You Are, co-host Sean Atkinson is joined by Dr. Paulo Shakarian, Associate Professor at the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering (CIDSE) at Arizona State University. Together, they discuss the cybersecurity implications of large language models (LLMs) like ChatGPT-3. They first look back on how deep learning has enabled machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) to reach new levels of accuracy. Next, they discuss how ChatGPT-3 and other new AI models, which are designed to mimic human language, may have inaccuracies. This possibility opens up new vulnerabilities, such as the ability to scale information operations, along with new challenges from a cybersecurity perspective. They conclude by sharing their thoughts about the future of the AI and LLM space.
