Imagine that the computer you are using can see on its own that it is infected with malware without using it antimalware software. This is something that can happen in the future when the machine learning device becomes part of the operating system.
Machine learning may be the solution of the future but Microsoft chooses not to apply it to its software, not even to Windows 10 1903 build. The reason; Diana Kelly, Cybersecurity CTO Microsoft recently shared the reasoning.
«The AI and the Machine Learning can help us find timely information about future attacks and see things that man can not see. But we need to make sure that we have cognitive diversity "Kelly explained.
Machine Learning can be considered a straight knife. Making it a technology accessible to the general public means hackers can use it. For now, only the computer scientists and high-end engineers really understand the current state of progress of Machine Learning.
«The teams that manufacture these models should not only include data security scientists and computer engineers but also lawyers and privacy experts to follow a holistic approach to modeling ML"Kelly added.
An example of incorporating Machine Learning into a company's daily routine is to pick out the interesting biographies of applicants for a position from a bunch of resumes. Separating CVs to identify the best candidate is a productive process.
Of course, the hackers monitor the progress of the Machine Learning and artificial intelligence. They are people who use technology for their own benefit. Note that the ransomware and the cryptocurrency mining malware are two of their leading creations based on publicly available technology.
A technology used to secure and maintain personal data we become a weapon for hackers and a nightmare for us.
«So far, they have tried some very interesting attacks, like changing only one pixel in an image to not be identified with the victim. ", Kelly concluded.
