“We are at an inflection point right now. Every company is rethinking how they are going to use AI. And every vendor is talking about it. And you can’t really blame them, because if you really think about the sophistication of security attacks, it no longer can be handled at human scale. You have to do it at machine scale, or it doesn’t work. Now, the question to ask is, what are the things that need to come together to make AI really a step-function improvement on the insights it can deliver, in security specifically? And there are three things, when you start thinking about AI, that need to come together. One of them is the model. The second is the data. And third is the experience … Now for all of us that have been part of witnessing this massive shift that’s happened with ChatGPT, the reason that they did so well was not just because they had a great model, and because they had great data and great insights. The reason they did well is because they nailed the experience.”
