League of AI Announces new Cognitive AI Cyber Security Lab
The League of AI is a collective of Human and Machine experts working together to collaborate, cooperate and reach consensus enabling swarming activities to solve tough problems.
The League of AI has built a best of breed framework for native cloud computing which they can apply to AI and Cognitive Engines for solving specific domain problems. The League of AI has hired Nir Daliot as their head of the research center as Chief Security Technology Officer (CSTO). A security veteran and experience from the Israeli Defense Force, Nir brings a level of leadership that will not only protect and find weaknesses in enterprise organizations but recommend strategies to enable protection across their threat landscape. Along with the opening of the LofAI Research Center is a launch of a number of cyber security services from Pen Testing, Security Assessment and Incident Response.
Unlike prescriptive programming efforts of old that only produced software that did what it is told, Cognitive software is more intuitive and can handle mundane reasoning tasks better than humans. At the core of the software are AI-Bots who specialize in solving part of the problem and coordinate to exchange information and leverage Machine Learning to expose patterns of bad behavior.
“The virtual lab has brought together the most amazing minds and technologies in the industry into a think tank around AI” said Thomas Caldwell, founder and CTO for League of AI. ” We look to collect the brightest AI and ML minds to solve tough business industry problems and augment today’s cyber professionals. We also have an active network of consultants that are providing value to our clients.”
Cognitive Computing was first introduced and supported by IBM where they found that Cognitive initiatives produced a surprisingly set of positive business results across their clients. IBM Watson was an early leader in this technology. As AI evolved into a buzz word, the Cognitive software concept has expanded across companies like Arista and their “Cognitive Campus”. Then on the dark side of computing we have seen the Miria Botnet evolve from hacking well know passwords in IoT devices to an even darker and powerful cloud of evil. League of AI is on a mission to create a set of building blocks to help companies and vendors build a Cognitive Computing strategy to do amazing things. The opening of the LofAI Research Lab is the first step in delivering high value AI through the lenses of Machines partnering with Humans (we call this Machine-Human swarming).
Thomas Caldwell will be speaking on Cognitive Security and Robotics and how physical security will be converging with Cyber Security at RSA 2019 this year in the session MBS-T07 “Evolution of AI-Bot Swarming Intelligence with Robots”
