MIT: the future of cybersecurity belongs to hybrid of human brain and machine power

Friday, April 22, 2016 By Read Time: 1 min.

MIT project confirms that neither human nor machine has proven overwhelmingly successful at maintaining cybersecurity on their own.


A recent security project and research published by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) confirms that neither human nor machine has proven overwhelmingly successful at maintaining cybersecurity on their own. This is why the researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) developed a new platform called AI2 that can detect 85% of computer attacks by combining manual and automated approaches.

Human brain is probably one of the most complicated, powerful and smart computing devices ever existed. However, low scalability and high costs make it inappropriate solution for many tasks. On the other side, machines can rapidly solve millions of simple problems, however cannot compete with human in complex problem solving. Therefore, combining their strengths to achieve highest performance is a good idea.

Actually, this is what we understood at High-Tech Bridge long time ago, when we started the development of ImmuniWeb® web security platform. Our unique hybrid technology combines managed machine learning vulnerability detection engine with manual penetration testing in real time:

MIT: the future of cybersecurity belongs to hybrid of human brain and machine power

We strongly believe that the future belongs to hybrid of human and machine. Human brain and machine power will outperform any automated technology or people alone.
