Using Machine Learning to Guess PINs from Video
2021-10-19 13:07

By using three tries, which is typically the maximum allowed number of attempts before the card is withheld, the researchers reconstructed the correct sequence for 5-digit PINs 30% of the time, and reached 41% for 4-digit PINs. This works even if the person is covering the pad with their hands.

Machine learning is a great tool for cybersecurity, but be cautious, expert says
2021-09-08 18:43

Christopher Ford: Supervised and unsupervised learning are techniques that help to facilitate different use cases within the sphere of machine learning. In the machine learning world, labeled data is data that you, as a human, go through and describe to your machine learning system.

Android 12 adds AI and machine learning with Private Compute Core but keeps your data secure
2021-08-31 14:33

Figure A. Outside of the features Private Compute Core will bring to your device, one of the more important things it does is store data separate from all apps and services, while making that data available to the operating system when required. With Private Compute Core at work, that data is processed within its own sandbox, away from everything else, and then the captions are presented for your viewing.

Researchers Propose Machine Learning-based Bluetooth Authentication Scheme
2021-08-31 06:00

A group of academics has proposed a machine learning approach that uses authentic interactions between devices in Bluetooth networks as a foundation to handle device-to-device authentication reliably. Called "Verification of Interaction Authenticity", the recurring authentication scheme aims to solve the problem of passive, continuous authentication and automatic deauthentication once two devices are paired with one another, which remain authenticated until an explicit deauthentication action is taken, or the authenticated session expires.

The Future of Machine Learning and Cybersecurity
2021-06-21 11:31

Actually, pretty much all code does things not thought up by man, because man didn't really think through what man coded. The problem with any EMCM is it almost always falls into one of the "Arthur C Clarke's" eponymous cognative failing bear traps by those observing such a process.

Akamai adds automation and machine learning to protect user accounts, APIs and applications
2021-06-16 15:00

Content delivery platform provider Akamai announced Wednesday platform security enhancements intended to increase cybersecurity protections for web applications, APIs and user accounts. Akamai said its machine learning algorithms leverage insights from a dataset of over 1.3 billion daily client interactions to automate threat detections, time-consuming tasks and security logic to help cybersecurity analysts make better decisions faster.

Machine learning-powered cybersecurity depends on good data and experience
2021-04-15 05:00

This is a common issue that is driving the high demand for machine learning-based analytics, as it helps security teams sift through massive amounts of data to prioritize risks and vulnerabilities and make more informed decisions. If your data is bad, then your machine learning tools will be insufficient, making your security infrastructure vulnerable to attack and putting your organization at risk for a wide-spread security breach.

Scientists develop quantum machine learning methods for reasoning
2021-04-12 03:30

Scientists at Cambridge Quantum Computing have developed methods and demonstrated that quantum machines can learn to infer hidden information from very general probabilistic reasoning models. The proofs of principle suggest quantum machines using highly expressive inference models could enable new applications in diverse fields.
