Bayesian Inference and Applications

Speaker: 
Dr.Jing Zhang
Affiliation: 
GSU Dept of Mathematics
Time: 
Friday, April 8, 2016 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm
Location: 
25 Park Place, Suite 755
Spring
2016

In this talk I will discuss Bayesian inference and some of its recent well-known applications. I will start with several quotes from New Scientist and Nature about Bayesian inference in modern high-tech science (machine learning, artificial intelligence), and then show some famous Bayesian applications, including Bayesian prediction of the U.S. elections of 2008 and 2012, and IBM’s Using Big Data to Invent Creative Recipes. Then I will go into detail about a very simple example of Bayesian inference.

Information Security is in the middle of paradigm shifting transformations.  Old methods are no longer sufficient to stop an attacker and they are evolving faster than most defensive measures.  In this talk we will discuss old methods, current attack tactics and techniques, difficulties in defending attacks, and new, evolving security measures.

Speaker's Bio: 

Matt completed his M.S. in Computer Science at GSU in May 2015 and currently works for Dell SecureWorks as a Security Operation Center manager, leading a team of Security Analysts.  Prior to GSU, he served for 7 years in the U.S. Army as an Infantry and Signal Corps. Officer.
