Pittsburgh cybersecurity bot creating Mayhem in D.C.

Museums are often catalogues of the past.

But a new exhibit at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History will showcase the possible future of cyber security.

Mayhem, a cyber security bot that uses artificial intelligence to detect and defend against attacks, was put on display Tuesday on the first floor of the Washington museum's innovation wing. Mayhem was built and designed by Pittsburgh-based ForAllSecure.

"It's an amazing piece of technology by itself," said Arthur Daemmrich, director of the Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation , a think tank inside and geared toward innovation. Mayhem represents not only an innovative approach to cyber security, he said, but it's also a symbol of the advancements in artificial intelligence.

Mayhem won the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's first-ever Cyber Grand Challenge in August.
