ChatGPT may be making headlines, but many security experts are still skeptical of artificial intelligence. The RSA Conference 2023 Information Security Media Group editors discuss this year’s hot topics, from looming risks in the metaverse to the latest approaches to cloud development.
Winn Schwartau, chief visionary officer at The Security Awareness Company, told ISMG’s Mathew Schwartz that virtual reality headsets and tools can worsen the way humans perceive reality.
Schwartau, who coined the term “electronic Pearl Harbor” in the early 1990s, isn’t worried about Facebook’s virtual reality headset metaverse, but he’s worried about what happens after that. “His point is that we’re using technology that’s getting better and better to the point where it makes reality feel like it’s not real. What happens when people get in there and start messing with it? We What risks do you face?” asked Schwartz, his editor at DataBreachToday and Europe executive.
