“Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 uses machine learning to fight malware”
The trouble with security software is that it’s always racing to catch up with new viruses and malware. They typically check against a database of known issues to protect you, which isn’t very useful for brand spanking new attacks. Qualcomm is trying to fix that with its Smart Protect technology, which uses machine learning to keep an eye out for potential security issues in real time. Instead of relying on a static list of threats to protect you, it’ll actually watch out for suspicious app behavior. Smart Protect will debut on Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 820 mobile processor, details of which it’s slowly leaking out. We already know the Snapdragon 820 will have faster graphics capabilities, for example, making it ideal for VR solutions. Naturally, Qualcomm is also offering an API for the new Smart Protect feature, allowing security software companies to take advantage of the new chip’s heightened awareness.
