I have done some research regarding the application of Machine Learning to cyber-security. After these recent attacks, I think that AI-based Cyber Defense can prevent them. I have also read about research regarding the same in MIT, and that AI can detect more than 80% of malware. Is AI actually so promising in this department?

  • $\begingroup$ Your question is too broad and does not show you really have put some effort in trying to understand the situation/problem and possible solutions for it. Saying that you read an article (or any other form of transmitting info) is not enough, IMHO. These are the main reasons of my downvote. Suggestion: at least cite what you have read! $\endgroup$ – nbro May 16 '17 at 14:14

There are projects out there attempting to apply Machine Learning / AI to cyber-security in different ways. One that I'm familiar with is Apache Metron. Another related project is Apache Spot. I think if you read over the docs for these two projects respectively, they will probably give you some good insights on this subject.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you @mindcrime. I'll read the docs and come back with more specific questions. $\endgroup$ – kvk venugopal May 18 '17 at 1:56
