Security Stop Press : Google Launches AI Cyber Defence Initiative

In a bid to “tilt the cybersecurity balance from attackers to cyber defenders,” Google has announced the launch of its AI Cyber Defence Initiative. The initiative involves the introduction of:

– Secure AI Framework (SAIF) – a conceptual framework for secure AI systems, to help collaboratively secure AI technology.

– $2 million in research grants and strategic partnerships to help strengthen cybersecurity research initiatives using AI.

– An open sourced, in-house machine-learning-powered file identifier called Magika, which can help network identifiers to quickly identify (and at scale) the true content of files.

Google says it’s “excited about AI’s potential to solve generational security challenges while bringing us close to the safe, secure and trusted digital world we deserve.”
