2THE OFFENSE/DEFENSE BALANCE IN CYBERSPACEIntroductionTechnology is continuously evolving, cyber-attacks and cyber security also beingadvanced and evolving at the same pace as technology. Cybersecurity threat’s graphs arecontinuously increasing and most of the threats generally become undetectable unless it harms inthe real world. For a general human, it is a very complex matter to analyse all the data saved inthe system1.This report focuses on the role of Artificial Intelligence in balancing the Offenseand Defense in cyberspace. AI is not a very new technology as robots have been around since1950's of which, many practical applications are available in our daily life. This report presentsthe objectives related to the cybersecurity and emphasizes on cyberattacks those are becoming acommon factor for the data and information saved in the system either offline or online. TheInternet has become an integral part of the life living for almost every human being and savingdata or information on the internet makes them vulnerable to cyberattacks. This report presentsan idea of how AI could change the face of the cybersecurity and contribute to the Defensethrough a debate. Watson, GoogleDeepmind, and Showan are some of the examples of AI thoseare contributing to enhancing the cybersecurity. The Offense-Defence Balance (ODB) theory hasbeen discussed in this report with regard to the international stability and how AI could beimplemented and used for the good cause.1Kasprick, Robert, Jordan Hoffman, Jeremy Straub, and Eunjin Kim.

3THE OFFENSE/DEFENSE BALANCE IN CYBERSPACERole of Artificial Intelligence in CyberspaceArtificial IntelligenceJohn McCarthy defined this as, “The science and engineering of making intelligentmachines, especially intelligent computer programs.” It can be described as a way of making thesoftware, computer, and computer-controlled robot much smarter, similar to the humanintelligence. Various researchers are trying to implement such thinking for decades and successis leading to various attempts2. It can be described as the mixture of Philosophy, computerscience, neuron science, biology, psychology, math, and sociology. There are variousapplications of AI in the current world including games, expert systems, speech recognition,natural language processing, intelligent robots, handwriting recognition and much more3.Artificial Intelligence (AI) could act as a boon for such issues and could help inanalysinga verywide range of data in very less time as compared to the data processed by humans.Offense-Defense in cyberspace is another concerning topic related to the virtual computer world that2Miller, Steven E., and Stephen Van Evera, eds.The Star Wars Controversy: An" InternationalSecurity" Reader.
