"Think about the system as a virtual analyst," says Kaylan Veermachaneni, co-creator of MIT's latest artificial intelligence. He's a research scientist at the university's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence lab that, along with Ignacio Arnaldo, built an AI that acts as a lookout for the age of cyber warfare. AI2 (Short for Artificial Intelligence Squared) is a system designed to spot a hacking attack better than humans and existing software. They claim that the program can detect 85 percent of malicious attacks, although that figure is set to rise the more it learns. We can already imagine Sony's IT gurus beating a path to Massachusetts with a suitcase stuffed full of unmarked bills.
