WHAT MACHINE LEARNING CAN (AND CAN'T) DO TO HELP SOLVE TODAY'S MOBILE SECURITY PROBLEMS
The security industry frequently throws around the buzz words “Machine learning” and “artificial intelligence”, but how can you separate fact from fiction regarding claims about these technologies? And what role and value do these technologies actually have in solving today’s security problems? Want to know a secret? What most vendors won’t tell you is that it’s not the machine learning algorithms that make the real difference: it’s the data used to train and optimize those algorithms. With a sufficiently large and relevant dataset, machine learning can be a powerful tool in a multi-layer security analysis chain, but it’s not a silver-bullet and it’s only as good as its input data and human designers.
