Security software vendor McAfee has warned that 2018 is likely to see hackers employ machine learning, deep learning and artificial intelligence to support their cyber-attacks and find vulnerabilities faster than defenders can patch them. To win this “arms race”, McAfee says that organizations must effectively augment machine judgment and the speed of orchestrated responses with human strategic intellect in order to anticipate patterns of how attacks might play out.
