In the coming years we will see AI used in more ways and in applications we can scarcely imagine. This is a space IBM has been very active in, particularly through their Watson project. With people using more devices and the expected explosion in end-points with the IoT, they’ve applied their Watson tech to the challenge of endpoint management.
IBM is training Watson on device enrollment, identity management, and regulatory compliance. Watson will correlate other sources including data on active threats like zero day vulnerabilities and malware to help protect devices.
This makes sense. Endpoint management will be critical in the IoT world as will real-time analytics of network traffic to deflect and block malicious behaviour – something AI can aid.
