AMA on Reddit: Your Questions, Our Answers

First of all we want to thank everyone who participated in voting up posts and asking question. Carlos really enjoyed answering you guys and loved the thoughtful and interesting queries (I specifically remember him saying more than once: “THIS is a good question! I could discuss it for a week.”). While some of them were a bit challenging to answer, he really tried to come up with something to say for every single one.

We are well aware though, that some of you probably didn’t have the time or opportunity to participate. That’s why we’ve decided to give you more time to ask your questions: Drop by whenever you feel like this week and just ask what’s on your mind. Carlos then will revisit the Reddit AMA post at the beginning of next week and answer the rest of the questions!

My favorite question was this one by the way:

Can jet fuel melt steel beams?
I’m not a physicist but despite other rumours (http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/920/259/143.jpg ) I’d still say yes. 🙂

But of course, there were also more than enough serious ones:

To my recollection, there are about 6 mil new malware discovered daily. How do you deal with such high numbers of new malware constantly appearing?
In our company we have many different ways to catch up to that huge quantity of files. The first thing that you need is to have large back-end systems that are able to manage that huge quantity of files together with different AI systems to classify them in a smart way. At the end, there will always remain hundreds of thousands of files that require a deeper (sometimes manual) look in order to improve or expand our AI systems. Yes and as you can imagine, it is an incredible amount of work.

You don’t know what to ask? Just take at the rest of the cool questions and answers from yesterday.
