Listed here is a entertaining a person: our new paper “Assessing the Influence of Machine Learning on Security” just went up. It has [the product of the] brains of at least 2 PhDs. Also, it incorporates AI [well, vendors lie about it, why can’t we? :-)], AI sells.

The abstract states: “Security and danger management complex industry experts are flooded with augmented intelligence certification and machine learning marketing from suppliers. This research explores serious-world examples to evaluate the usefulness of AI and ML approaches in enhancing security posture.”

Some of my preferred quotes are beneath:

  • “Gartner consumers need to concentration on enhanced outcomes and particular use cases when evaluating the suitability of ML-based mostly stability resources. ML methods are most acceptable in conditions wherever regular strategies are intractable, inefficient or only unattainable, and in which suitable info of substantial good quality is adequately readily available.”
  • “SaaS software suppliers and company vendors that can harness data from several clientele are envisioned to pull ahead of their stability ML competitors, given that their algorithms will be properly trained on a varied and increasing set of stability situations.”
  • “Judging an ML software by its algorithms is akin to judging computer software by its programming language.” <- yes, we have pithy quotes! This one I think was made by Anna.
  • “Does “augmented intelligence certification” automatically mean “better product” today in security? Frankly, no.”
  • “Some examples of unintentionally unhelpful descriptions of ML-based security products include: […] Cool-sounding, but niche, language. Some vendors will use very domain-specific terminology when they engage with you. “Ontologies,” “knowledge representations” and “ensemble learning” are all real, powerful and very cool ideas, but they don’t help you decide if the product you are considering will meet your needs.”
