    The Ugly

    Introducing updated technology - machine learning is not new technology - into the public domain without fully accessing the impact of it.

    Use of such technology before it has been thoroughly proven; namely has it security wise passed "the test of time."

    Bottom line - not ready for "prime time" security protection.

    -EDIT- This also explains the increased use of "rigged" AV Labs tests and discrediting of legacy AV security products by employing well known bypasses to disable their self-protection mechanisms and like theatrics to give the impression that their technology is superior in malware protection when in reality, it is not.
