Jumping on the bandwagon

from here and here

There's a lot of attention being paid to artificial intelligence apps like Stable Diffusion or ChatGPT which seem to have (simulated) understanding of natural language, and for good reason because that's actually a really impressive feat. What cybersecurity technology does is not nearly as impressive - not because it's not technical enough but simply because classifying samples isn't the kind of activity that implies the system has any kind of understanding of those sample.

But that's not going to stop marketing people from hyping up their company's technology. Really, there's very little that can stop marketing people.
