Artificial intelligence could help predict cyber attacks

Cyber attacks have been in the news a lot lately. From cases of ransomware holding hospital records hostage to the hack that crippled Sony t0 the security breach that left VTech toys vulnerable, a lot of damage can be done if companies don’t adequately protect their data. But oftentimes, signs that a system has been compromised are not clear until it’s too late. Human analysts may miss the evidence, while automated detection systems tend to generate a lot of false alarms. What’s the solution? Cue the rise of artificial intelligence, or at least AI that can work in tandem with human analysts to spot digital clues that could be signs of trouble. A research team from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and machine-learning startup PatternEx have developed…
