MIT Says A.I. Not Smart Enough Yet at Cybersecurity, Still Needs Humans

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has good news if you’re in the security industry: A.I. robots might not take your job. Researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) released a paper last week that describes an enhanced cybersecurity system called “A.I.²”. Its an analyst-in-the-loop system” that uses A.I. to comb through massive amounts of data and human analysts to provide feedback. A.I. combines the two types of cybersecurity systems currently in use: Analyst-driven (humans trying to identify and respond to attacks), and unsupervised machine learning-driven (A.I. using patterns to predict and detect attacks). Both systems have their downsides. Humans tend to miss a lot of cyber attacks because of overwhelming data, and A.I. tends to put out a lot of false alarms because patterns aren’t always predictive.…
