21st Century Crime: How Malicious Artificial Intelligence Will Impact Homeland Security

 

In this NPS-CHDS Viewpoints, NPS-CHDS master’s graduate Kevin Peters discusses his Master’s thesis, 21st Century Crime: How Malicious Artificial Intelligence Will Impact Homeland Security.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a field of research with the potential to radically change society’s use of information technology, particularly how personal information will be interconnected and how private lives will be accessible to cybercriminals. Criminals, motivated by profit, are likely to adapt future AI software systems to their operations, further complicating present-day cybercrime investigations. This thesis examines how transnational criminal organizations and cybercriminals may leverage developing AI technology to conduct more sophisticated criminal activities and what steps the homeland security enterprise should take to prepare.
