Artificial Intelligence and Cloud Computing

November 26, 2019

The buzz surrounding artificial intelligence (AI) is hard to ignore. Huge data sets and large amounts of compute are the perfect match for deep learning, astonishing us with algorithms that have beaten grandmasters at games of chess and Go. Today, with access to no more than a web browser, the benefits enabled by breakthroughs in image and speech recognition not to mention machine translation and more are just a few clicks away. There’s the growth of the cloud to consider too. We’re depositing more and more of our data on virtual drives that make it easier to share, back-up and transfer information providing us with new opportunities both in the office and at home. But what do machine learning and cloud computing mean for scientific research? How can these tools help researchers to manage and navigate the vast datasets generated by increasingly sophisticated detectors and experiments? At big science facilities, data streams that used to be megabits per second are now hundreds of times faster, sometimes even more, as detector upgrades come online and new instruments are installed. That’s a lot of data to analyse and verify.

The FireEye Approach to Effective Cloud Security

whitePaper | May 30, 2018

In many ways, the public cloud is more secure than a traditional data center. Asset management, inventory, audit logging, two-factor access controls, connectivity redundancy, and firewalls are built into the cloud provider platform. Servers are easier to patch. And since implementations that are just a few years old are considered too old, there aren’t any forgotten boxes sitting in a dark corner with a note reading: “DO NOT TURN OFF.”
