Artificial Intelligence – or AI – has become a buzzword since it emerged in the 1950s. However, all AI systems are not created equal. In our white paper, “Self-Supervised Learning – AI For Complex Network Security,” Dr. Peter Stephenson explains the different “waves” of artificial intelligence. He uses the DARPA definitions for each of these waves. In this paper we continue that discussion by adding our own context to the problem of what constitutes useful AI as it relates to cyber security.

Of necessity we must move beyond simple definitions to the underlying contexts that surround them. In this paper we will look at those contexts, apply them to the field of cyber security in general and network monitoring and intelligent interpretation – particularly the ability of a monitoring system to produce actionable intelligence – in particular, and demonstrate our findings when analyzing MixMode.
