It seemed that just a few years ago, artificial intelligence was still considered very much the realm of science fiction. Now AI, machine learning, and so-called neural networks seem to be everywhere. Companies are using these technologies not only to automate processes, such as business intelligence, but also to solve an array of problems. Security is one area in which neural networks are being applied. In the age of massive data breaches, this technology might hold the key to getting malicious attacks under control. In order to gain perspective on the future of security, InformationWeek Senior Editor Sara Peters spoke with Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Labs about how the worlds of AI and security are colliding in new ways.

It was so interesting I would have liked to be there for his presentation. Are the Interop presentations available somewhere? -Susan
