The role of artificial intelligence in protecting personal data

CAPTION: A criminology professor at the University of Montreal outlines how artificial intelligence is used by cybersecurity products in efforts to protect your personal data.

But he warns that keeping data safe is still challenging. (Dec. 7, 2017) 1.

SOUNDBITE: David Decary-Hetu, University of Montreal PLACELINE: Montreal CREDIT: The Canadian Press STORYLINE: Technological advances in artificial intelligence are fuelling a new race between hackers and those toiling to protect cybersecurity networks.

Cybersecurity is always a race between offence and defence but new tools are giving companies that employ them a leg up on those trying to steal their data.

Whereas past responses to cybercrimes often looked for known hacking methods long after they occurred, AI techniques using machine learning scan huge volumes of data to detect patterns of abnormal behaviour that are imperceptible to humans.

Experts expect machines will become so sophisticated that they'll develop answers to questions that humans won't clearly understand.

David Decary- Hetu, assistant professor of criminology at the University of Montreal, says defenders have an edge right now in using artificial intelligence. ``But who knows what's going to happen in a few years from now,'' he said in an interview. ``The main issue is that if you're defending a system you have to be good 100 per cent of the time, but when you're attacking the system you only have to be successful once to get in.''
