    As I always said here Ai is just marketing trick to appeal noobs. Ai alone can't do much compared to other and even older solutions.

    I believe this is a quite painful exploit, I had high hopes for AI. But this might seriously damage the way people see AI and machine learning. Or perhaps Cylance simply didn't design it properly.

    I believe this article is not about exploiting AI, but they bypassed Cylance behavior monitoring part.
