AI to the Rescue: Protecting Devices from PC to Mobile to IoT


Security is the only domain where AI is faced with a truly adversarial opponent – the human being ! It is hugely challenging and exciting for AI researchers to pit their brains against blackhats, whose entire profit depends on evading the algorithms. I will discuss the evolution of Machine Learning for protecting devices, in the following three contexts: (1) Malware detection in the cloud, (2) Behavioral analysis on mobiles, (3) IoT security in the network.
