Artificial intelligence (AI) involves developing computer systems that can learn and improve themselves, guided by data analysis. AI can be used in cyber security to detect and prevent attacks on networks, automate tasks, and remediate detected threats. Machine learning, a subset of AI, involves training computers to make decisions based on past data.
While AI has been successful in several areas, including music composition and voice recognition, it has not yet fully succeeded in detecting and preventing cyber attacks in real time without human intervention. Data plays a critical role in cyber security, and historical data can be used to detect suspicious activity and prevent future attacks.
