Abstract: This paper presents the results of a literature survey on the impact of artificial intelligence on the human aspects of information and cybersecurity. Artificial intelligence and its two subfields, machine learning and deep learning, are briefly described though much emphasis is placed on the impact of their applications to the human aspects of information and cybersecurity. In addition, the paper presents arguments by those in favour of autonomous artificial intelligence designs that do not require human interventions as well as counter-arguments by those opposed to the idea for ethical and other reasons. The current and future security trends of the human-artificial intelligence integration are explored. The findings reveal that artificial intelligence is currently utilised only for augmenting human capacity in information and cybersecurity activities whereas the future trends are unknown. The study proposes the socio-technical systems approach for attaining the optimal security results through the human-artificial intelligence integration.
