Microsoft will use AI to fight Windows malware
« on: June 28, 2017, 07:27:50 AM »
Microsoft is planning to use artificial intelligence to fight Windows malware. Using a wealth of data from its cloud-based services, the company will create a smart antivirus feature that will make Windows Defender Advanced Threat Detection even better at preventing malicious attacks.

It’s part of a number of big security improvements coming in Microsoft’s next major update to Windows 10, the Fall Creators Update. It will allow ATP to instantly identify previously unknown malware on a PC, then quickly quarantine it and create a “signature” of its identity. This will then be used to protect other computers from the same strain of attack.
