In the world of artificial intelligence, versatility often steals the spotlight, yet when it comes to cybersecurity, specialization takes the center stage. ChatGPT, despite its remarkable success, comes across as a jack of all trades. It is adept at interpreting human language and generating text, but its knowledge is frozen in time as of September 2021. It lacks a continuous inflow of specific data, especially in the constantly evolving domain of cybersecurity. This necessitated the birth of Bricklayer AI, which is tailored to understand, interpret, and act upon cybersecurity-centric data and scenarios.

ChatGPT has proven its mettle in understanding and generating human-like text. This prowess lies in the colossal amount of data it has been trained on. However, the devil is in the details – or in this case, the fact that without specific data or knowledge of processes, it tends to conjure incorrect answers with misplaced confidence – a phenomenon known as hallucination.

Shortcomings of ChatGPT:

  • Stale Knowledge: Its training only encompasses data up until September 2021.
  • Unsourced Answers: The model doesn’t provide sources for its responses, which leaves a void when verification or further exploration is needed.
  • Hallucination: It can provide incorrect answers with unwavering confidence.
  • Rigidity: There’s no mechanism to update the prompt or fine-tune the model post-deployment.

ChatGPT vs. Bricklayer: A Comparative Analysis

Timeliness of Information:

  • ChatGPT: Lags in updating its knowledge base, a glaring shortfall in cybersecurity where information has a short shelf-life.
  • Bricklayer: Ensures real-time data utilization, with an added ability to integrate organizational data, keeping the AI always informed and reliable.

Technical Jargon Handling:

  • ChatGPT: Struggles with complex jargon and often lacks sufficient context, leading to irrelevant results.
  • Bricklayer: Hones a better understanding of technical terminology thanks to its focused knowledge, thus aligning more closely with how security professionals communicate.

Agent Architecture:

  • ChatGPT: Operates as a single-agent system, which is limited in addressing diverse or complex scenarios.
  • Bricklayer: Employs Generative AI Networks (GAINs), facilitating specialized agents for specific tasks, orchestrated by a coordination agent. This modularity promotes a more nuanced and effective solutioning.

Data Accessibility:

  • ChatGPT: Remains blind to data behind paywalls, APIs, or specific customer data. While plugins might mitigate this to an extent, the lack of security-centric knowledge and skills would still persist.
  • Bricklayer: Architecturally designed to integrate real-time public and customer-specific data, embodying a more holistic approach to data utilization.

Sourceability and Validation:

  • ChatGPT: Relies solely on probabilistic modeling to derive correct answers, which will result in hallucinations and can be misleading.
  • Bricklayer: Dissects a problem into manageable parts, utilizing specialized agents to collate a more accurate and high quality response, backed by real, current data.  All data sources reviewed, as well as the agents utilized and what questions they were tasked are provided back as part of the response.

Bricklayer AI emerges as a specialized counterpart to ChatGPT in the realm of cybersecurity. Its design encapsulates the critical aspects of real-time data integration, technical jargon understanding, and a multi-agent architecture, bringing a more tailored and effective solution to the table. Cybersecurity is a domain where settling for less isn’t an option, and this premise led to the genesis of Bricklayer AI – a testament to the continuous evolution towards creating more robust and reliable AI solutions for cybersecurity.
