Today we're joined by Nicole Nichols, a senior research scientist at the Pacific Northwest National Lab.
Nicole joined me to discuss her recent presentation at GTC, which was titled "Machine Learning for Security, and Security for Machine Learning." Our conversation explores the two use cases she presented, insider threat detection, and software fuzz testing. We discuss the effectiveness of standard and bidirectional RNN language models for detecting malicious activity within the Los Alamos National Laboratory cybersecurity dataset, the augmentation of software fuzzing techniques using deep learning, and light-based adversarial attacks on image classification systems. I'd love to hear your thoughts on these use cases!
