AI & Cyber security: Trends, Threats and Opportunities


The explosive growth of AI during the past few years has fueled an enormous growth of capabilities that were in the realm of science fiction just 20 years ago. In this talk, I will discuss new trends in AI and Machine Learning and their relationship to a host of cyber security threats that we can expect in the future. At the same time, the talk will also discuss novel opportunities provided in the current ecosystem. Specific aspects of the talk will focus on the prediction of malware threats and cyber-attacks before they happen, methods that companies can use to prioritize threats and security actions based on objective analysis of open source threat information, as well as how the ability to generate fakes (text, images, video) will prove to be a force for both good and evil.
