Five myths about machine learning in cybersecurity | Advanced Mobile Spy Software
Machine learning has long permeated all areas of human activity. It not only plays a key role in the recognition of speech, gestures, handwriting and images – without machine learning it would be difficult to imagine modern medicine, banking, bioinformatics and any type of quality control. Even the weather forecast cannot be made without machines capable of learning and generalization. I would like to warn about, or dispel, some of the misconceptions associated with the use of ML in the field of cybersecurity. Myth №1: Machine learning in information security is a novelty For some reason, discussion of artificial intelligence in cybersecurity has become all the rage of late. If you haven't been following this theme over the longer term, you may well think it's something new. A bit of background: one of the first machine learning algorithms, the artificial neural network, was invented in the 1950s. Interestingly, at that time it was thought the algorithm would
