AI - Artificial Intelligence

AI is technology that appears to emulate human behavior in that it can continually learn and draw its own conclusions (even based on novel or abstract concepts), engage in natural dialog with people, and / or replace people in the execution of more complex (non-routine) tasks.

Artificial intelligence (AI) may allow computer systems to automatically learn and improve their capabilities based on experience without being explicitly programmed. Potential applications for AI in the field of data analytics are immense, and this relates also to the field of analyzing data for cyber security. With AI, what might take days for a human to understand, takes minutes. Moreover, the algorithms will also learn and predict based on experience and results, actually lessening the time to detection. AI may have a profound impact for both malicious and defensive cyber security applications.
