This week the Down the Security Rabbithole podcast hosts Sven Krasser of CrowdStrike. Sven is an actual machine learning data science expert (as opposed to an "expert") who has been dabbling in machine learning, artificial intelligence and other forms of advanced computational science for a long while before it was popular in security. This week we James and Raf sit him down for 45 or so minutes to discuss the real facts and separate them from the fiction of what machine learning really is and the promise that it may hold for the enterprise security world.

As always, join us, share, and engage our crew using the hashtag #DtSR on Twitter.

We'd like to take a moment to thank Sven and Crowdstrike for the time and expertise to our show.
