1 min read

Google has announced the AI Cyber Defense Initiative, a new program aimed at transforming cybersecurity through the use of artificial intelligence (AI). The initiative offers investments, skills training, and tools for businesses, academic institutions, and researchers. Google is providing $2 million in funding for AI research initiatives, with a focus on resilient large language models, code verification, and AI for cyber offense and defense. In addition, Google has selected 17 startups to participate in a three-month program aimed at strengthening the transatlantic cybersecurity ecosystem. The company is also expanding its Cybersecurity Seminars Program to include AI-focused modules that will be available to the entirety of Europe. Google’s AI technology, Magika, which powers Gmail, Drive, and safe browsing, will be open-sourced for integration into other tools. The AI Cyber Defense Initiative aims to give defenders an edge in cybersecurity by removing complexity, adapting to new attacks, and reacting to threats seamlessly and at scale. Google has been investing in its global data centers for AI, with over $5 billion invested since 2019 to provide secure computing for generative AI systems. Overall, Google’s initiative seeks to address the “Defender’s Dilemma” by leveraging the power of AI to mitigate risks and seize opportunities in cybersecurity.
