Whitepaper on Artificial Intelligence and Cyber Security

Humans learn mainly through experience and observing patterns of events. Computers with their ability to crunch large numbers and carry out more calculations than a human could do, were promptly co-opted in this learning process. Pattern recognition has been employed in computer algorithms for quite some time now. What has really excited the cyber security community now is the availability of better computing power and, thus, the ability to develop robust mathematical models that can parse large unstructured data sets.
