Using artificial intelligence in cybersecurity

With today’s ever evolving cyber-attacks and proliferation of devices, machine learning and AI can be used to “keep up with the bad guys,” automating threat detection and respond more efficiently than traditional software-driven approaches.

At the same time, cybersecurity presents some unique challenges: By 2021, there are estimated to be an astounding 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity positions worldwide.  Google: Gmail has used machine learning techniques to filter emails since its launch 18 years ago.

“A lot of work that’s happening in a security operation center today is routine or repetitive, so what if we can automate some of that using machine learning?”Koos Lodewijkx, vice president and chief technology officer of security operations and response at IBM Security.

AI and machine learning (ML) can be used by IT security professionals to enforce good cybersecurity practices and shrink the attack surface instead of constantly chasing after malicious activity.

Herein lies the “AI/cybersecurity conundrum.” As AI matures and moves increasingly into the cybersecurity space, companies will need to guard against the potential downsides of this exciting new technology: In an ideal future world, AI will be an enabling technology that transforms our lives.

In short, it will allow us to form powerful human-machine partnerships that push the boundaries of our knowledge, enrich our lives, and drive cybersecurity in a way that seems greater than the sum of its parts.


That was six years after renown American software engineer Grady Booch estimated that more than one trillion lines of code had already been written, with a further 30 billion lines added each year.

This library can be used to train computers to identify patterns in software, just as advanced web services, such as Google Photos or Google Translate, process millions of samples to learn to identify particular images or phrases.In a project funded by the ERC, Vechev and his team are harnessing Big Code.

“We are building an AI system that can learn from lots of data showing how existing programmers and developers write code and how they fix code.” To do this, the computer also has to estimate how good a particular piece of code might be.

Vechev says his ERC-funded project takes advantage of a confluence of three factors: the growing body of Big Code, the evolution of machine learning algorithms and recent progress in automated reasoning engines – software a computer uses to think its way through a problem.

“Within the timeframe of this project, we think this is achievable for small low-level tasks, such as a search for a graph, sorting a set of numbers in a very efficient way or writing a program that manipulates pictures, modifying or cropping an image and saving the result,” Vechev notes.

“If the system could beat an expert human in a programing competition, that would be success,” he says.From there, managers might be able to give instructions to computers and robots, just as they do to other human beings, rather than meticulously writing precise code.

Is self aware Artificial Intelligence possible?

The more I work with AI and machine learning the more I realise it’s a fantasy to think a machine will some day be sentient.

For an AI to understand what a giraffe is it need to be shown 1000s of giraffe images and even then it’s not intelligent enough to recognise it every time under different lighting, etc.

In contract you could show one image of a giraffe to a child and it would recognise it whether it was a video, image, cartoon, outline or painted blue.

If you multiplied what AI can do today by a million times what you end up with is an AI that can solve infinitely complex problems.

An AI can memorise a dictionary, consciousness is writing a sad book and understanding the emotion behind why it’s sad.

There are many people that believe this, which is why people like Elon are trying to set some limits on how intelligent we allow AI to become: Elon Musk says we need to regulate AI before it becomes a danger to humanity Either way you look at it, it will be an amazing time.

find it funny that people worry about sentience that may never happen, but not so much about how many people will be left without jobs because of AI/robots.
