Super-smart AI could make antivirus updates a thing of the past

We all know that antivirus programs, while certainly essential, have their limitations, but an Israeli security startup is working on algorithms which could give security suites even tighter defences in the future. This all revolves around virus definitions, the updates that security companies regularly deliver to their products – some being more regular than others, but there’s always something of a delay in malware hitting the wild, and antivirus software receiving the appropriate updates to detect it. As MIT Technology Review reports, Tel Aviv-based Deep Instinct (yes, it sounds more like a film than a security firm) is busy working on proprietary deep learning algorithms – AI neural networks which continually learn like the human brain, and can recognise fresh malware as it emerges with no need for definition updates…
