With recent advances in next-generation language models such as OpenAI's GPT-3, AI generated text has reached a level of sophistication that matches or even exceeds human generated output. The proliferation of Artificial Intelligence as a Service (AIaaS) products places these capabilities in the hands of a global market, bypassing the need to independently train models or rely on open-source pre-trained models. By greatly reducing the barriers to entry, AIaaS gives consumers access to state-of-the-art AI capabilities at a fraction of the cost through user-friendly APIs.

Do‌ ‌you‌ ‌want‌ ‌to‌ ‌know‌ ‌how‌ ‌to‌ ‌build‌ ‌a‌ ‌top-ranked‌ ‌competitive‌ ‌security‌ ‌team?‌ ‌I‌ ‌don’t‌ ‌mean‌ ‌some‌‌
sort‌ ‌of‌ ‌certification‌ ‌--‌ ‌I‌ ‌mean‌ ‌a‌ ‌team‌ ‌of‌ ‌master‌ ‌hackers‌ ‌who‌ ‌can‌ ‌bend‌ ‌systems‌ ‌to‌ ‌their‌ ‌will‌ ‌to‌‌
achieve‌ ‌any‌ ‌objective.‌ ‌

It’s‌ ‌all‌ ‌about‌ ‌the‌ ‌system.‌ ‌In‌ ‌sports,‌ ‌we‌ ‌understand‌ ‌systems‌ ‌that‌ ‌coaches‌ ‌can‌ ‌use‌ ‌to‌ ‌build‌ ‌a‌‌
system‌ ‌for‌ ‌identifying‌ ‌talent,‌ ‌recruiting‌ ‌them,‌ ‌training‌ ‌them‌ ‌up,‌ ‌and‌ ‌competing‌ ‌in‌ ‌big‌ ‌games.‌‌
