New Data Analytics Class Offered Spring 2013

Dr. Suthaharan will be offering a special topics class in “Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning” in the Spring 2013 semester. Students will treat network intrusion datasets as Big Data and analyze the datasets using modern Machine Learning (ML) techniques. Several datasets in the public domain will be studied and analyzed. Students will have an opportunity to build an Intrusion Detection System in the Petty 214 lab, generate massive datasets and analyze them for Big Data classification. Students will learn the ML techniques in an algorithmic style rather than mathematically. Undergraduate students should sign up for CSC 495, while graduate students should register for CSC 663. In addition to the regular classwork, the graduate students will read at least two recent papers on the related topics and report their comparison study through class presentations and technical reports. For more information, contact Dr. Suthaharan.
