Authors: Anto Joseph and Clarence Chio

Machine learning (ML) is the future. The speaker will give an introduction to the topic with the Boolean classification problem and introduce classifiers, which are at the core of many of the most common ML systems. He will also provide a simple example of deploying security machine learning systems in production pipelines using Apache Spark. The speaker will talk about how such systems can be poisoned, misguided, and utterly broken if the architects and implementers are not careful.
