What is the true potential impact of artificial intelligence on cybersecurity?

Will artificial intelligence become clever enough to upend computer security? AI is already surprising the world of art by producing masterpieces in any style on demand. It’s capable of writing poetry while digging up arcane facts in a vast repository.
