The considerable number of articles cover Machine Learning for cybersecurity and the ability to protect us from cyber attacks. Still, it’s important to scrutinize how actually Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Deep Learning (DL) can help in cybersecurity right now and what this hype is all about.
First of all, I have to disappoint you. Unfortunately, Machine Learning will never be a silver bullet for cybersecurity compared to image recognition or natural language processing, two areas where Machine Learning is thriving. There will always be a man trying to find weaknesses in systems or ML algorithms and to bypass security mechanisms. What’s worse, now hackers are able to use Machine Learning to carry out all their nefarious endeavors.
