Machine Learning and Security Solutions
The fourth speaker in our career education series was Mr. Ananthakrishnan, Senior Director of Product Management at Aruba Networks. His talk introduced students to machine learning, and how machines are taught to use rules to identify patterns in data. He also spoke about how machine learning is used in security enforcement to protect our computer networks from hackers.
Students really enjoyed the talk very much as they were all quite familiar with many terms like hacking through their video games. So it was a very interactive session. The students wanted to know the difference between good hackers and bad hackers. They also wanted to know how computer viruses are identified and stopped. Mr. Ananthakrishnan patiently answered all their questions.
