Cisco’s General Counsel talks AI, innovation and cybersecurity

Cisco General Counsel Mark Chandler sits down with Thomson Reuters Asif Alam to discuss artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, partnerships and the continual transformation in tech.

Artificial intelligence

“The use of analytics across large data sets and the ability of machines to learn as they work through that data to come up with better ways to predict what’s going to happen and a better way to generate documents, or other tools that allow us to solve problems – that will just increase day by day.”


“If you don’t like change and you don’t find it really exciting to always have to be on your feet and figure out how to stay ahead of things, this isn’t the right place for you. I happen to love it.”


“We are the world’s biggest Internet security company; although, since it’s not our only business, we’re often not recognized that way.”


“I think successful partnerships for us are ones where there is risk sharing, where both sides recognize they’re moving into an unknown territory and you have to live with some unknowns.”
