  • Security Gets Smart with AI by G.W. Ray Davidson and Barbara Filkins - March 23, 2019 

    This SANS survey, directed at cybersecurity professionals who use or are interested in AI, examines perceptions about AI's basic capabilities for security and what technologies--including deep learning, various recognition techniques, machine learning and others--are considered part of AI for security. The survey also examines whether, how and when security experts will begin implementing AI for security and how they intend to use it.
