The Future of Autonomy in Cybersecurity
By August Cole, Linton Wells II, Chris Meissner
Much has been written on autonomy and autonomous systems’ impact on warfare, however it increasingly seems like its most decisive uses will be in the cyber domain. Avascent on the Record analyzes the future of autonomy in the cyber domain and the related challenges for government and industry. Lin and Chris further consider this topic in a piece recently published at Defense One.
