🐑 Hackers’ Assembly: Streamlined Fuzzy Logic Inference Development for Anti-Phishing

June 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The word "HACK" in red text and a blue drop shadow, in a style resembling Robert Indiana's "Love" sculpture (except that the letters are all on the same line instead of stacked).

There are not many opportunities to learn the use of fuzzy logic without a detailed coding learning curve. This presentation makes an effort to provide the important and practical concepts of fuzzy logic while applying it to anti-phishing solutions.
This discussion will take the form of both a presentation and a workshop. After some coverage of the phishing problem and the mechanics of fuzzy logic inferencing, the audience will participate in a workshop that demonstrates a streamlined approach to implementing a fuzzy inference system. Two components are covered: (1) The IEC 61131-7 standard of a Fuzzy Control Language and (2) Scalablurry (https://github.com/raygarcia/scalablurry), a platform independent Scala fuzzy logic library that also processes IEC 61131-7 standard scripts. The goal is to build runnable implementations using these two components as a streamlined approach against existing phishing data sets. Only a minimal effort is required to get set up on a laptop for anyone to participate. Instructions will also be provided.

About the Presenter: Raymond Garcia, Ph.D.

Ray is experienced as both an applied researcher and a practitioner in the public sector and across several areas in the private sector that include the telecommunications, pharmaceutical, and banking industries. Within these industries, Ray has used a variety of technologies in applying natural language processing, numerical techniques, and machine learning to subject matters that include insider threat, information assurance, and situational awareness.

Ray has a BS (Temple U.), ME (Penn State), and Ph.D. (Georgia Tech) in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Applied Mathematics.
