PatternEx Hosting Artificial Intelligence Workshop for CISOs at Black Hat

Doctors Veeramachaneni and Arnaldo to Lead Educational Session for Security Leaders Clarifying the Role of AI in Cyber Attack Detection

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 19, 2016) - PatternEx, the pioneer in Artificial Intelligence for information security, today announced it will be hosting a workshop during the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas. The workshop will be led by two AI security experts with years in the field, and will demystify Artificial Intelligence before exploring its application in cyber defense.

Dr. Kalyan Veeramachaneni is currently a research scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), and has been conducting research in the field for years. He will be joined by Dr. Ignacio Arnaldo, the Chief Data Scientist at PatternEx and former researcher at MIT CSAIL. Together they will facilitate an interactive, vendor agnostic discussion which will provide a foundation for understanding emerging artificial intelligence solutions in InfoSec.

"During the time that we have been talking with security leaders from around the world we have found a strong interest in the potential of AI in InfoSec, but there is too much jargon and marketing speak out there," comments Travis Reed, CMO for PatternEx. "This workshop will start at a high level and then take a deep dive; explaining what AI is and isn't, how it works in the context of security, how it fits into existing security postures, and the ROI that can be expected. It's a workshop that CISOs have been asking for."

The session will be held from 11am to 1pm on August 3rd at the Luxor Towers. Attendance is limited. Please click here to request an invitation.  

For those who would prefer one-on-one sessions with Dr. Veeramachaneni and Dr. Arnaldo, they are planning meetings August 2nd in the Mandalay Bay at the Voyager Boardroom, Level 3 in the South Convention Hall from 9am to 5pm. They will also be available from Monday through Thursday at the Luxor. Please click here to request a 1:1 session
