Re: not so sure...
Machine learning will play a part, in sure. Just as machine learning has drastically reduced the amount of spam in my inbox, but it's not perfect-- and the malware black hats seem to be motivated to come up with clever ways to fool algorithms.

Re: not so sure...
True.  AI is not good for situations that require the capability to grap meanings and extrapolate data across a broad spectrum.  It has its shortcomings for now with respect to IoT security.

not so sure...
I'm not so sure that machine learning will be essential for IoT security... It could be the case that simply only allowing authorized processes to run will shut down 99+% of all malware attacks. So then it just becomes a matter of making sure only authorized processes are run -- and verifying that there are identified human beings (or entities) behind every process. 

This might greatly curtail some of the functions that might develop, but is a limited IoT preferrable to a more powerful but less secure IoT?

Re: Machine Learning's #01!
@Ariella That certainly could be considered a potential downside of the future for machine learning! 

As the good things happen, nefarious actors learn how to use these systems for bad.

Re: Machine Learning's #01!
That is a part of it but I was more referring to the fact that in order for machines to learn that have to collect and store a ton of data, and who know how that data could be used to effect security.

Re: Machine Learning's #01!
@afwriter Do you mean that the hackers can use their own machines to pick up on the habits of the systems they want to break into and so find which points are most vulnerable?

Re: Machine Learning's #01!
Absolutely the case, we'll have to wait and see which "side" applies it to greater effect!

Re: Machine Learning's #01!

The one thing that I find highly interesting about machine learning is the things that it will be able to do humans currently cannot. When it comes to sensors and devices machine learning is going to be able to accomplish a lot more then we could ever think was possible.

Re: Machine Learning's #01!
@Jeremy, I would tend to agree with you but, playing Devil's avocate here, doesn't machine learning also open up the potential for security breaches? At the very least there are privacy concers with the amount of data machines collect to learn right?

Machine Learning's #01!
Of the many potential solutions that are likely to play a role in improving IoT security (and cybersecurity in general) in the near future, I'd say machine learning and related technologies are the most important.
