Capping things off, is Sara Peters interview with Konstantin Berlin, senior research engineer at Invincea Labs. Berlin hones in one of the key cybersecurity promises of machine learning (particularly “deep learning”) for security analysis, with a focus on how to take give organizations more information about unfamiliar code than simply “it’s benign” or “it’s malicious.” His talk is, “An AI Approach To Malware Similarity Analysis: Mapping The Malware Genome with a Deep Neural Network.”
