Next-Gen SOC Episode 3: Correlation, Machine Learning, and Threat Hunting

#artificialintelligence

Some attacks may still slip "under the radar" though, which is why tools that leverage machine-learning, like User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), are an important support to your SIEM as they will detect more unusual threats as well as greatly increase the overall fidelity of your security alerts. SIEM and UEBA are further supported by threat hunting tools that enable your hunt teams to track down any other threats that may still be lurking in your system. All three approaches are important to your threat detection and response ecosystem.

PyMARL is WhiRL's framework for deep multi-agent reinforcement learning and includes implementations of the following algorithms: PyMARL is written in PyTorch and uses SMAC as its environment. This will download SC2 into the 3rdparty folder and copy the maps necessary to run over. The config files act as defaults for an algorithm or environment. They are all located in src/config. All results will be stored in the Results folder.


Cosmose AI raises $12 million to track brick-and-mortar purchasing habits

#artificialintelligence

Keeping abreast of shopping trends online is straightforward enough -- whole categories of startups achieve this with predictive modeling. But what about when that shopping takes place in-store? Tracking the behaviors of mall, outlet, and department store shoppers is of critical importance to physical store brands, particularly considering that the percentage of brick-and-mortar sales increased by 2% from $2.99 trillion in 2016 to $3.04 trillion in 2017. To meet this need, Miron Mironiuk founded Cosmose AI, a Shanghai-based analytics software provider that anticipates how people shop offline. Brands like Subway, Samsung, Walmart, Airbnb, Tencent, Burberry, Omnicom, Mercedes-Benz, Anheuser-Busch InBev, LVMH, Kering, L'Oréal, Gucci, Cartier, P&G, Nestle, and Coca-Cola use its tool suite to granularly track offline visitors' purchasing habits and target them with online ads via WeChat, Weibo, Facebook, Google, and over 100 other internet platforms.


The role of the CIO in Enterprise AI

#artificialintelligence

Organizations are starting to see artificial intelligence (AI) as an integral part of their corporate strategy. With mass volumes of data flowing through omni-channel environments, AI is now a reality rather than something of science fiction or something that only applies to the big tech companies. The International Data Corporation (IDC) have said that they expect global spending on AI to reach as much as $77 billion by 2022, a three-fold increase on the reported 2018 investments. A recent Gartner report showed that 49% of Chief Information Officers (CIOs) have already changed business models within their enterprise or are currently doing so to incorporate new technologies such as AI. Vice President of Gartner, Andy Rowsell-Jones, has said that we are moving to a new digital era of information technology.

How Microcontrollers Improve with Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is causing microcontrollers to achieve higher levels of functionality. FREMONT, CA: Memory and computing capabilities are not crucial to run AI algorithms anymore. Today, the smallest of systems, with minimum processing and storage, can support AI and ML programs. Microcontrollers with artificial intelligence have become feasible today. Unlike full-scale computers, microcontrollers are simple and using a programmer, one can execute codes in it.

NVIDIA/OpenSeq2Seq

#artificialintelligence

OpenSeq2Seq main goal is to allow researchers to most effectively explore various sequence-to-sequence models. The efficiency is achieved by fully supporting distributed and mixed-precision training. OpenSeq2Seq is built using TensorFlow and provides all the necessary building blocks for training encoder-decoder models for neural machine translation, automatic speech recognition, speech synthesis, and language modeling. Speech-to-text workflow uses some parts of Mozilla DeepSpeech project. Beam search decoder with language model re-scoring implementation (in decoders) is based on Baidu DeepSpeech.
