Cyber Security: from signatures to Deep Learning and AI

Nikolaos Vasiloglou

In the past years, machine learning has advanced significantly making it possible for machines to outperform humans in several cognitive tasks, such as recognizing images, playing computer games even creating art. Those results are attributed to the breakthroughs in Deep Learning that resurrected the dreams for AI. Cyber Security is heavily affected by the AI revolution. In this talk we will see how the Cyber Security industry can take advantage of newly developed algorithms to become more effective. We will also investigate how AI can create new types of threats and what tools the industry needs to develop to secure its assets.
