Dr. Sukrit Dasgupta, Head of Engineering for the Cisco AI Cloud platform team, will give a colloquium talk, titled “Designing and Deploying Cisco AI Spoofing Detection” on Friday, March 31, from 12:30 – 1:30 PM in STEM 102.
See below for more information about Dr. Dasgupta.
Abstract: As time passes, demands on networks are only increasing. Whether it’s the growth of bandwidth intensive applications, complexity of security postures, more devices per person or simply, more users spending more time on the network, the expectations for everything to “just work” is taken for granted. Traditional ways of managing, operating, and securing networks are being augmented with a steady influx of Machine Learning technologies to help with the challenges. In this discussion we will go over some scenarios where Machine Learning approaches are assisting network operations and talk about the motivations and challenges around the problem and solution space. As many of you will soon be looking forward to solving challenging problems in this domain once you graduate, I will share some of my experiences and also talk about how students can prepare themselves in this vast space.
Speaker Bio: Sukrit Dasgupta is the Head of Engineering for the Cisco AI Cloud platform team that deploys multiple AI Applications for Cisco DNA Center, Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) and Cisco ThousandEyes.
