With an average malicious application deleted in just 0.3 seconds, the technique has been found to totally prevent up to 92 percent of files on a computer from being corrupted.
Computers, laptops, and other smart gadgets in our homes could be protected by artificial intelligence that can quickly identify and eliminate malware.
In less than a second, researchers developed a new method for automatically detecting and eliminating cyberattacks on our laptops, computers, and smart devices.
Using artificial intelligence in an entirely new way, the technology has been discovered to effectively prevent up to 92 percent of data on a computer from being corrupted, with malware being wiped out in as little as 0.3 seconds on average.
On December 6th, the team published their findings in Security and Communications Networks, claiming that this is the first demonstration of a method that can both detect and kill malicious software in real-time, potentially transforming approaches to modern cybersecurity and avoiding incidents like the recent WannaCry cyberattack on the NHS in 2017.
