It goes without saying that Artificial Intelligence (AI) or machine intelligence, is at the forefront of technological discourse and its impact on DevOps and particularly in IT automation cannot be understated. Even though AI has come of age and crossed the threshold of symbolic meaning to achieve practical implementations, in most cases the term reflects nothing more than an abstract notion. For many in the IT industry and cybersecurity domain, embracing AI without clearly understanding what it can and cannot offer is akin to flying blind in the ever-expanding computing skies. AI will have a particularly important role to play in cybersecurity and next-gen data center, however that merits a closer look at its present state first.
