Machine learning are already used in security products and more opportunities lie ahead. Spam protection, malware detection and intrusion detection to mention a few.

Page 9 of this book has a "What is Machine Learning" section with the most concise and intuitive explanation of ML I have ever read. I would recommend this book not just to security specialists but for developers investigating into ML just for this clear picture of ML.

The book gives a good general outline and reference of tools for developing security applications using Ma
