Malware dates back to the earliest days of connected computing. Our approach to dealing with malware has remained relatively static. The current malware management method relies on being able to determine patterns within unpacked, decrypted files. This provides a single pattern-based signature to defend against a wide range of malware attacks but is insufficient for the future. Artificial intelligence has been used to solve business and social problems using advanced data mining and compute capabilities. During this session a specific implementation of a deep learning system will be explored to give insight into how this type of technology will combat cybercriminals and the malware they create.
