Today’s guest is Zulfikar Ramzam, PhD. CTO RSA Security. He talks about innovation concepts, handling large data sets, and he takes a fresh look at artificial intelligence.
If anyone who has been a guest on “Federal Tech Talk” can make a comment about innovation it would be Dr. Ramzam. In addition to his having a Ph.D. From MIT, he also has 51 patents. He elucidates upon his four rules of innovation. His four questions are: Is the concept innovative? Does is distinctly solve a problem? How does it fit as part of an end-to-end system? Finally, what are the key assumptions are needed for success?
It is always fascinating to see how technology people always pursue the latest shiny thing Over the past twelve years we have seen many. . We have all been deluged with the cloud, big data, and blockchain.
The phrase of the day seems to be artificial intelligence (AI). Dr. Ramzan observes that AI is designed for legitimate data sets. If you assume that the data is valid, you may be able to make valid conclusions, however, if you have artificial intelligence or just guess it will not hold up.
This has important ramifications for cybersecurity. He refers to an article “Why AI is important for cybersecurity.”
