Order vs. Mad Science: Analyzing Black Hat Swarm Intelligence

White hat defense systems continue to improve on supervised learning sets using machine and deep learning neural networks to defend against an exploding attack surface. Zombies that require commands from botnet herders are becoming intelligent, capable of their own decisions as we saw with Hajime in 2017. Swarm intelligence can be used to enhance these networks. What can we do to defend?

Learning Objectives:
1: Learn about the current state of black hat automation/AI practices.
2: Understand the next stage of black hat swarm intelligence hive networks
3: Gain insight into practical defense approaches using white hat automation and AI.
