This will be a guided discussion about the effect of Expert Systems / AI on software development and information security careers using automated XSS remediation as a scenario.
Since the dot com bubble of the early 2000's off-shoring has increasingly been used to decrease costs for well-defined problems. In 2016, I built a offshore static analysis team of humans. The same year, I also built an expert system that automatically fixes security vulnerabilities -making my human trainees obsolete.
To help understand how much might be affected, I'm going to explain:
1) Why it is often very expensive to build a static analysis team.
2) How very complicated it is to build a cost-effective static analysis security team and integrate it effectively into a business.
3) What an expert system is, what it takes to write one, and what it's capable of.
Then we're going to discuss:
The implications of it being cheaper to write an expert system than to train offshore humans for highly skilled professions such as a cost-effective static analysis team.
True to the spirit of the Fauzy Hour, the presentation will be low polish and high content.
The Fauzy Hour is an off the cuff talk / discussion / demo led by a person with knowledge of the subject matter.
Each week there will be a new topic, and the total of sum of human knowledge is the limit.
Everyone is encouraged to come teach what they know and learn what they don't.
Comments, questions, and interjections are an important part of The Hour so don't be shy.
Previous Hours have included:
Basic car maintenance and repair
Application Security "APPSEC"
