It seems that Machine Learning is the new hotness in Information Security. A huge number of security startups in their names that claim that their product will defend or detect more effectively than any other product "because math" and how they use "big data and stuff."

Indeed, math is powerful and large-scale machine learning is an important cornerstone of much of the information systems that we use today. However, not all algorithms and techniques are born equal. Machine Learning is a most powerful toolbox, but not every tool can be applied to every problem and that's where the pitfalls lie.

This presentation will describe the different techniques available for data analysis and machine learning for Information Security, and discuss their strengths and caveats. The Ghost of Marketing Past will also show how similar the unfulfilled promises of deterministic and exploratory analysis were, and how to avoid making the same mistakes again.

So, if you need to tell your "3rd generation anomaly detection" and your "hyper-dimensional user behavior analysis" apart, tune in because this is the talk for you!
