When viewed as the future of cyber security, then the answer is yes, according to Accenture Labs.  “Artificial intelligence is the future of cyber security,” In 2016, the Bureau of Labor Statics reported 200,000 cybersecurity jobs available in the US.  Job roles in the cybersecurity today range from

  • Security Administrator
  • Security Specialist
  • Information Assurance Technician
  • Security Analyst
  • Cybersecurity Engineer

How will these roles evolve in the next 4-5 years?  According to Ben Salem, a senior principal at Accenture “There are a million cyber security roles that will go unfilled all over the world by 2021, and we cannot fill those roles without the help or artificial intelligence.”
