3:50 PM Machine Learning and AI: Saving Security or Job Stealing Digital Overlords?

Headlines suggest that the future of the IT department (including information security) looks to be increasingly reliant upon machines doing the work, courtesy of the adoption and explosion of automation technologies, artificial intelligence and machine learning. How capable can machines ultimately become in securing businesses from an increasing array of threats? What role does this leave for humans?
