Interesting discussion
Agree - actually BOTH inputs, human and AI are important.   I would trust, going forward, AI for the grunt work of malware analysis and then let a human evaluate threat disposition.  Remember the old movie WARGAMES where the argument was made to let WOPR run the national nuclear defense network - take the human out of the equation, and look how that turned out.  AI cannot replace human involvement - it can supplement it to a good degree and probable that is the larger degree.  FASTER too.

Re: This is a little off-subject, but .....
As the daughter of two dentists, i would agree to that.  But my father always told me that some help in running scenarios for diagnostic could help, though in the end he would make the call.  I believe AI can help IT security professional sort through the noise and provide alerts in the rigth direction, human intervention is still needed to review and make the ultimate decision.

This is how AI will help us and we need to see it for what it is, a helping technology, and stop fighting it by fear that it will replace humans one day.  I do not believe it will.

This is a little off-subject, but .....
A few years ago I was discussing the involvement of computers with medical practice - with a dentist to be precise - and as much as computers (by ext, AI) could and did benefit his business, he also said this.  That when a surgeon is cutting and feeling his way around a patient on the table, computers cannot FEEL what his or her fingers FEEL and process that data to the brain.  Something to be said for that.

Re: False Positives
True, but it is life in cybersecurity.  Any threat prevention software out there have false positive, AI ( and i do not mean Watson) and machine learning technologies have more capabilities to actually learn from false positive and factored them in their algorithm.

False Positives
AI must also be capable of detecting an infinite variety of false-positive hits, software that seems malicious, could be but is not after careful review.  WATSON is not the solution to everything in the western world.

This is where artificial intelligence will help
AI will help IT professionals work smarter, faster with the help of machine learning technologies.  If we cannot train a reasonable pool of new IT security professionals to meet the industry needs, AI will start supplementing for that and cybersecurity vendors are embracing the technology at a fast and furious pace.
