How Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Computers Could Help Fight Cybercrimes

#artificialintelligence

However, new technologies such as artificial intelligence and quantum computing can reportedly help prevent cyberattacks. IBM is also developing its own AI security platform called Watson. If machine learning and AI would easily ramp up data sorting process, quantum computing could simultaneously work on every data permutation. However, just like any other machines, AI technology in security systems is also vulnerable from being tricked.


Byline: Artificial Intelligence: Cybersecurity Friend or Foe?

#artificialintelligence

IBNS provides pervasive visibility across the entire distributed network, and enables integrated security solutions to automatically adapt to changing network configurations and shifting business needs with a synchronized response to threats. The next generation of situation-aware malware will use AI to behave like a human attacker: performing reconnaissance, identifying targets, choosing methods of attack, and intelligently evading detection. In many ways, malware will begin to behave like a human attacker: performing reconnaissance, identifying targets, choosing methods of attack, and intelligently evading detection. Overcoming these challenges will require highly integrated and intelligent security technologies that can see across platforms, correlate threat intelligence and automatically synchronize a coordinated response.


Artificial Intelligence - The Future of Cybersecurity

#artificialintelligence

AI technology can be used to protect confidential data and critical infrastructure from attackers with its ability to detect, prevent, and patch vulnerabilities. The Internet of Thing (IoT) technologies like tablets, cell phones, Bluetooth devices, or smart phone devices, are integrating as a part of our everyday lives. As technology advances, the threats organizations face are becoming more sophisticated and harder to detect, as hackers are finding new and smarter ways to disguise their trails. It is important for organizations to perform risk assessments, determining the real risks they face and the impact of those risks.


Is Cybersecurity A Second Coming For AI?

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is all over the technology headlines lately. What problem could machine learning and artificial intelligence solve for cybersecurity? With machine learning, that mountain of data could be whittled down in a fraction of the time, helping organizations quickly identify and then mitigate a security incident. Between the mountain of security data that IT teams must manage and the lack of visibility I described above, now might be AI's time to shine.


The Cyberpunk Body Hacking Grinders in Cyberwar

#artificialintelligence

My latest book is a thriller and it is science fiction, but it is also known as what is called a genre smasher, and so I felt it was time to address the cyberpunk body hacking grinders in Cyberwar. Fifty percent of the population consider the cyborg way of life a right and have permanently altered some part of their body; many of these body hackers have cybernetic eyes that replace one of their own functioning eyes with an infrared and thermal imaging device. The other half of the world populous remain steadfast in what they deem their birthright: the right to have no mechanized or electronic device, forced into their bodies. "The Cyberpunk Body Hacking Grinders in Cyberwar" was written by R.J. Huneke.


UN North Korea investigator's computer hacked in cyber attack

The Independent

A panel of United Nations experts investigating violations of international sanctions on North Korea has been hit by a "sustained" cyber attack. The giant human-like robot bears a striking resemblance to the military robots starring in the movie'Avatar' and is claimed as a world first by its creators from a South Korean robotic company Waseda University's saxophonist robot WAS-5, developed by professor Atsuo Takanishi and Kaptain Rock playing one string light saber guitar perform jam session A man looks at an exhibit entitled'Mimus' a giant industrial robot which has been reprogrammed to interact with humans during a photocall at the new Design Museum in South Kensington, London Electrification Guru Dr. Wolfgang Ziebart talks about the electric Jaguar I-PACE concept SUV before it was unveiled before the Los Angeles Auto Show in Los Angeles, California, U.S The Jaguar I-PACE Concept car is the start of a new era for Jaguar.

Why do we need 'accidental heroes' to deal with global cyber-attacks? Evgeny Morozov

The Guardian

"Just as the fourth Geneva convention recognised that the protection of civilians required the active involvement of the Red Cross, protection against nation-state cyber-attacks requires the active assistance of technology companies," he wrote on the company's blog in February. In essence, the concentration of the most valuable resource of the new century – artificial intelligence – in Silicon Valley makes US tech firms impossible to disrupt, allowing them to create new opportunities for rent-extraction. In the case of cybersecurity and the "digital Geneva conventions", Microsoft's game plan is clear: once nation states formally recognise the company as the digital equivalent of the Red Cross, it should also lead to lucrative private contracts to offer cybersecurity protection – all of that, obviously, at a hefty fee. Thus, in addition to regularly extracting rent from the users of its software, Microsoft can now also extract additional rent from those very users for protecting the very software that they are renting in the first place – no one really buys or owns anything in the digital world, it all belongs to platform operators.


Father-son duo creates cybersecurity tool

#artificialintelligence

A collaboration between an 11-year-old East Northport boy and his IBM inventor father has given voice to cybersecurity tools using that company's Watson artificial intelligence system. Spisak was seeking to apply artificial intelligence tools to the problem of cybersecurity. The average security operations center at a major corporation or other large organization is confronted with 200,000 security events per day that need investigation or response, according to IBM Research. IBM is betting that its cognitive intelligence initiatives -- such as applying Watson to cybersecurity -- will help revive stagnant revenue growth.


7 Facts on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Cybersecurity

#artificialintelligence

The first algorithm was written in the 1970s and by the 1990s the use of algorithms to make predictions was applied to data mining, adaptive software, Internet applications and language learning. In the area of cybersecurity, this technology helps analysts to scan thousands of malicious files each day, in order to correctly and quickly answer the usual question: "is the file healthy or malicious?" However, its value is reflected in its applicability to many areas such as malicious URL detection, identification of advanced persistent threats (APT), detection of network event anomalies, and spam filtering between other. This means that security solutions can respond more quickly to new unknown cyber threats than automated cyber-attack detection systems, used today.
